A message from Rev. Ken.




In need of respite? Pushed to the brink in busy-ness? Is an illness dragging you down? Are you disturbed about the world’s condition? Just feeling down? On the last Sunday of each month we offer a service of respite and healing. In place of the traditional sermon will be a healing ceremony. The entire service on the last Sunday of each month will be intentionally calming and restorative. Come, be surrounded and filled with the grace of God’s hope- beginning Sunday, September 28.
