  • Blue Sunday Day of Prayer

    Sunday, April 29

    All three services

    Our church will observe Blue Sunday on Sunday, April 29. Blue Sunday is a day of prayer for abused children and those who rescue them. We ask everyone to bring a new stuffed animal to church to donate to our local police departments. The animals will be put in squad cars to give to a child when the officer is responding to a domestic dispute situation.

  • Pinwheel Garden

    We are partnering with The Call and CASA to sponsor a Blue Pinwheel Garden in the month of April to support Child Abuse Prevention. Each pinwheel is $1. If you would like to sponsor a pinwheel in our garden, you can place your gift in the offering plate on Sunday morning. Please make sure to designate your gift for the Pinwheel Garden.
