Outreach Focus Concludes on Sunday

New Directions: Reaching Out, Reconciling, Renewing

through Faith and Action

On Sunday we conclude our month-long outreach focus by affirming our baptisms as worship begins and hearing a Temple Talk by Bob Manning, leader of the Outreach Task Force.

All adults are invited to gather at 10:15 a.m. the Meeting Room for a discussion led by Pat Gsellman on the day’s outreach theme.


A “concert reading” of the play “Bach at Leipzig” will be presented at 2:30 p.m. in the sanctuary. All are invited to attend; a free-will offering will be received.
