A big shout-out to all those who participated in our 2017
Advent series, "Simply Wait". Thanks to Rev. Jeanie, Patricia Johnson, Dorothy Robinson, Herman Bostick and Melissa Williams for their facilitation, as well as those who provided food. Hopefully, the themes outlined in the book - anticipation, hope, patience and obedience - served to deepen our spiritual journey through Advent and beyond. Our 2018
Lenten series is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, February 21, 2018.
More information will be forthcoming. Be blessed. Jackie Bowie, Chair, Christian Education.
