Current & Coming Events

----------New Groups----------

Join us for a brown bag lunch on the fourth Monday of every month for a time of creativity and story sharing. Basic art materials will be provided or you can bring your own. The Rev. Stephanie B. Dunn will provide a prompt each month and you can create something in whatever medium you prefer  (watercolor, mixed media, poetry... it's up to you).  We will have time for show-n-tell toward the end of our time. We will end by 1pm for those who need to return to work.


Come for a walk with Pastor Darren along the YMCA Greenway. He will meet you there at 9am 

on Tuesdays.

Salad Day


The teachers and staff at Hickman Elementary were full of praise for the salad luncheon on May 10th.  Pastor Darren would tell the teachers and staff, as they came in the door, "There is a potato bar on this end, then the savory salads and then the sweet salads."  The teachers and staff were served 35 salads, 55 potatoes, cookies, water, lemonade and tea.  Thank you to all that planned, donated, helped set up, served, and cleaned up!
