A tree was removed by the Buildings & Grounds committee from the greenspace south of the parsonage. There is plenty of firewood available for free located on the southside of the church garage.

Sunday Adult/Teen Bible Study: In the Dust of the Rabbi. An ancient Jewish proverb states "Follow the Rabbi, drink in his words, and be covered with the dust of his feet." In Jesus' day, disciples followed their Rabbi so closely that they would be covered with the dust kicked up by the Rabbi's feet. Come, discover how you can get dusty and be closer to your Rabbi, Jesus, by doing what he does. This video series is filmed on location in Israel. This five-week Bible study is in the lower level of the church from 10:05-10:50 a.m. on Sunday mornings (Oct. 10 through Nov. 7).
