January 20 is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and we are going to celebrate his legacy with a day of service!  Families of all ages are welcome to meet in the Fellowship Hall and then go into the community to care for our neighbors.  We will meet at 10am and will be done by 12pm.  After we serve, families are invited to gather at a nearby restaurant for lunch! Please fill out the reservation form below or contact Rev. Lindsey Solomon.

Maxwell House is in need of bags to provide to people who sleep on the streets. We will pack the bags on our Day of Service. Everyone can help by bringing the following items to the church by January 20: small packs of baby wipes, hand warmers, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, socks, granola bars, small bottles of water, canvas bags, reusable grocery store bags.
