In the weeks leading up to Easter, we are on a Lenten journey of recovery... but is true healing even possible? Experts agree that we ARE or that we BECOME the stories we tell ourselves; they profoundly affect our wellbeing. Join us this Sunday to explore the impact of stories, especially on our mental health.
We've heard your feedback! So we're trying a new Covid-safe Communion set this Sunday in worship. Stop by the church office 10AM-3PM any day this week to pick yours up. Or BYOE (bring your own elements) to online worship.
