Graduation and Youth Sunday Print

June 1st was a day to celebrate our youth!


Congratulations to our graduating seniors - Emily Stump and Kane Pennywitt!  Well Done!  Emily will be attending Williams College this Fall and Kane is currently employed in the construction industry.

Acolytes were also honored and especially three servers who are receiving their 5 year crosses as a sign of our appreciation of their dedicated and faithful ministry:  Samuel Taylor, Sylvia Taylor and Gabriel Diemer.  We also welcomed two new acolytes, Noah and Zeta Anderson.  Thanks to all our youth who helped lead the worship service.

2014 Hero Award Print

2014 Hero Awards - Spirit of the Red Cross

In the midst of bitter January temperatures, Reverand Joe Ashby and his congregation joined forces with the Red Cross to open the doors of their church as a warming shelter for the community.


Two men released from the local correctional facility, were caught without transportation in the 30 below temperatures.  They were brought to the church and stayed the evening with Reverald Joe and the shelter volunteers.


"They opened up to us," said Reverald Joe, reflecting on the two young men.  As the evening passed, he learned more about the young men, about their lives and hjow they ghad transpired.

Moved by their determination to fulfill their promise, Reverand Joe was able to connect one of the men to a pastor in the man's hometown.
