We said goodbye, in October 2017, to our last pastor, Rev. David Cowell, who faithfully served our community for many years. We are in the process of calling a temporary revitalization pastor to help us envision, and put into action, our hopes and dreams for the future of our church. We hope you will join us on Sunday, while we are in this time of finding our next pastor – we have been blessed with the gift of a guest preacher every Sunday.
