Wednesday Lenten Services - “Signs of Lent”
During our Wednesday Lenten services we will be using a series based on the concept of road signs and how their messages apply to our life in Christ during the season of Lent: U-Turn, Stop, Merge, Yield, One Way, Dead End, Road Narrows, Food, Cross Road, Work Ahead. On Wednesdays join us at 11:30am and 7:30pm. The evening service is followed by fellowship.

Sunday School Christmas Pageant Photos
Our Sunday School did a great job on their Christmas Pageant. Thanks to Lisa Cellura and all the Sunday School teachers and kids. You can see some photos of the pageant here.
Service on the Sound Photos
We had our annual Service on the Sound at Sunken Meadow Beach. The weather was beautiful and it was our best-attended service yet. Some folks on the boardwalk joined our service as well. The picnic after the service was our biggest and best ever. There’s not enough room in this post to describe all the food but you can check some of it out in the last photo (there were a few other tables of food not pictured in the photo). Thanks to Deanne Emory, Barbara Haerter, Liisa May and their volunteers for coordinating this event and a big thanks to Howard Johnson for supplying a huge amount of food – everyone went home with leftovers and we gave the rest to other picnickers. Check out the photos here.
