Rise & Shine 
Sunday Mornings - 10 a.m.

Join us in the Parlor for fellowship, coffee, and light snacks.

Nursery for Sunday Mornings
Church Scholarships Available

   During worship, we have a special time for our young disciples.   

   We love the sound of infants and small children worshiping among us.  We have a hall tree full of activity bags to help keep your little worshiper engaged.  If you prefer, we also offer a fully-staffed nursery from 10 to 11:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings (for infants through kindergarten-age children).  

For the women of the church...

Our United Women in Faith groups are proud of their two Circles:  The Alpha Circle meets on the first Tuesday of the month, 9:30 a.m., at the church;  the Ruth Circle meets on the third Wednesday of the month, 7 p.m., at the church.



   In case of a cardiac emergency, the Trustees have placed an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) in the church.  The purchase of the AED and first aid kits were made possible by the generous donation from the Memorial Committee and are located by the water fountain between the main Men's and Women's restrooms.

   While we hope to never have to deploy, the Trustees would like to familiarize those interested in using the fully automatic AED and administering CPR until emergency responders arrive.  Carolyn Bartlett has graciously agreed to provide training on May 21 and June 4.  The training will start each Sunday immediately following church or the Third Sunday Lunch May 21 and will only last 30-45 minutes.

   If you cannot attend one of these initial sessions, other sessions will be provided quarterly as well as annually.  So we know how many to expect, a signup sheet is available in the Narthex.  Thank you for your interest and support. 

Congratulations to Josiah Swendson!

Josiah participated in the 2023 Special Olympics held at Shawnee Heights High School.  He took 1st Place in the 50 Meter Walk; 3rd Place in the Softball Throw and 3rd Place in the 100 Meter Run.  

The church has scholarships that are provided through the Eckert/Neil Memorial and Scholarship Fund and the Cecil and Velma Bunton Memorial Scholarship Fund.  If you plan to attend college in the Fall of 2023, you are invited to apply.  Applications are available for pickup in the church office and Narthex.  June 1, 2023 is the deadline for submitting your completed application to the church.
