Today will be Rev. Fast's first time in the pulpit as our new (3/4 time) Developmental Minister. Her sermon topic will be posted in Sunday Services soon. Please plan to come and welcome her.
To say hello to Rev. Fast and to proclaim that our hot summer is coming to a close soon, we'll celebrate after the service with ice cream sundaes.
