The Program for This Sunday



  Our Annual Spring Festival  on Sunday, April 20th, at 10:30 a.m. Led by Tom Hoeppner and Sharon Appelquist, we'll celebrate Earth Day and the seasonal renewal of life. Our Sunday School children will display their musical talents and present a short play, and give us colorful spring flowers in hand-painted pots for planting in our home gardens.
