Sunday 10:00 AM Worship Schedule

Come to the Table

In the Come to the Table series, we hear the call to dine with Jesus-an invitation that means much more than a simple eating experience.  When we say “yes” to the place at Christ’s table, we accept a way of life that embraces God’s definition of love, peace, grace, and joy.
