Emails from the Church Office

The church office now has the capability of sending email to the congregation in mass.  We anticipate using this capability exclusively to convey important messages to the entire congregation in a timely manner, for instance to announce worship schedule changes.

Take Note

Linda and I are 2,780 miles or so from Geneva having traversed the hills and plains, passed through villages (we like driving the “blue highways” when we can) and some of the great cities, crossed some of the most beautiful mountain passes and deep valleys, driven through sun washed landscapes, downpours and clouds and smoke (there are several big fires out here) and have arrived at the cabin we have rented near Bass Lake in the beautiful Cabinet Mountains of Montana.  We have seen the beauty of this great land and celebrate the wonders that our God has created for us to tend and keep.  Music fills our heart and minds.
