Sunday Morning Hospitality: The church has been purchasing Red’s Donuts for our hospitality after the 10 a.m. service every Sunday since the beginning of the year. Unfortunately, this is not sustainable with our current budget. Fr. Charles needs help continuing our hospitality tradition each Sunday with a volunteer to host one Sunday each month with some type of snack for fellowship. A sign-up will be located on the hospitality table on Sunday morning for members to sign. Please consider helping how we love our guests and members with a little morning.

— We Miss You or, How Are You Doing? This is a program that Fr. Charles has created and developed to help our members know that each member is not forgotten and is important to our Church. Since the pandemic, many members are still hesitant to return to Sunday worship. Would you like to help Fr. Charles touch base with the members of our congregation? If you would like to help our rector, please email him at revcu91@gmail.com for more information.
