Happy Anniversary, Living Light of Peace! June 15th marked my fifth anniversary as pastor to this congregation. To mark the occasion, there is a special treat and gift from me to you! Thanks for letting me walk with you during this time. Jeni

This week we will choose a location and hopefully set an install date for our Little Free Food Pantry.

New date for our cookout hosted by Bob & Linda Fish: August 11th.

 Have a favorite Bible verse and/or hymn that you would like to share with the congregation? July and August are the months to hear from YOU! Can you enhance our services by sharing for 5-10 minutes about the verse/hymn and why it is meaningful to you? Please let Jeni know!
