Bright New Beginnings

January 9, 2020

This Saturday evening, January 11, celebrate the New Year with our annual Bright New Beginnings church pot luck. We will honor a few Unsung Heroes in our church community and revel in our life together. Families are invited and child care will be provided. Doors open at 5:00pm and dinner starts at 5:30pm. This is a beautiful event, full of warmth and light on a winter night–come.
