Congregational Life


Our objective is to provide opportunities to nurture church fellowship and strengthen community, increase and nurture member involvement and increase welcoming and gathering times.

Some of our yearly activities include Rally Sunday, Blessing of the Animals, Advent Workshop, Chili Cook-Off, Lenten dinners and programs, Children’s Sunday ice-cream social and a Carillon Concert picnic in July.  We also provide a “Community Garden” at the church for those wishing to provide themselves with some fresh vegetables during the summer.
