Easter Sunday

Two Services:
9:00 am
11:00 am

The two services will be identical in terms of music, sermon and other elements. The Easter Egg Hunt for children in grades 1-6 will occur after the first worship service at approximately 10:15 am in the courtyard and graveyard. A special Egg Hunt will happen for children in the Nursery and Prek/K classes during their class time, in the fenced-in area adjacent to the Nursery.

Meetinghouse Campaign

Building Design Stage

Construction for the Meetinghouse improvements is planned to begin in June 2014 and the project will likely be completed in only six months — sooner than expected. This will result in a shortfall between pledge receipts and payments, which are spread over several years. The shortfall will require a loan, and to minimize interest and associated costs we are hoping you will consider accelerating the payment of your pledge. For those who have not started making your pledge payments, please do so as soon as you are able. For the many who have already sent in your pledges, thank you! Email capitalcampaign @ if you have questions.
