A Lavish Welcome

On Saturday, October 4, and Sunday, October 5, we will celebrate our church's 20th anniversary of being an Open and Affirming Congregation.  This is a big milestone in the life of our congregation—and well worth a big celebration!  Our theme for the celebratory weekend is "A Lavish Welcome."  We will be extending the invitation to our neighbors and friends, local churches, and all churches in our Region.
On Saturday, we will host an open house and picnic potluck at the church from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  There will be outdoor games and activities, music, speakers (including Lizzy Beach from the GLAD Alliance Council), and of course great food!  The church will provide hot dogs and hamburgers, and we would like individuals to bring side dishes, salads, and desserts. 

On Sunday, we will continue our Lavish Welcome celebration in worship.  Our special guest preacher will be our new regional minister, Rev. Dr. LaTaunya Bynum.
You won’t want to miss any part of this celebration.  It reminds us of our past rooted in justice and calls us toward an even more lavish welcome for any and all who need the comfort of God’s healing love.
