Worship Theme for June: 
Road Signs for Life - 
A Journey with Jonah

Summer is construction season in New York and as a result our roadways are often difficult to navigate and we have to pay more attention to the signs.  Wouldn't it be nice if there were signs pointing to the danger of life? the places under construction? the places we should slow down, stop, go or yield?  Join us as we learn some hard lessons from Jonah about navigation our life's journey


June 1:  Go ... To Nineveh

June 8:  Stop ... Fish Ahead

June 15: Construction Ahead

June 22: Yield ... To God's Grace


Worship Celebration begins at 10:00 a.m. 
Refreshments before, during and after worship
