Kevin Guest House Event
We are planning a future trips to Kevin Guest House in Buffalo. Our next date is  April 6th.  Once there, we provide dinner to the guests that are tending to family members hospitalized in the area medical complex. Some of the guests are the patients themselves. If you would like to offer yourself for future dates- please speak to our coordinator, Karin Johnson.

Lenten Sermon and study series
Choices. They are there for all of us. Which way to go? What waits down each choice? Which way does the world call us to go? Which way is the way of Christ the crucified? Which way makes sense?

Many of those involved in the  story of the crucifixion, and one ancestor long before, had to decide which way to go. Some chose well, some did not and their stories help us to know what to do or not do when we encounter similar choices in our lives. In the end, each story is a revealing of how Christ and His cross lead us to make the better choice.

Through the five Sundays of Lent, (as well as our Sunday and Wednesday Bible study groups) we will look at such people as King David, Judas, Pontius Pilate, Malchus, Peter and finally John and the choices they made in life.

And in honor of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, we invite your participation in extra giving during the Lenten season to our national church’s effort to ease the hunger of the world. Called 40 Days of Giving, the use of the Lenten offering envelopes in your boxes will help with issues of sanitation and water, agriculture and nutrition, education and training, health care and prevention. More details will be shared with you throughout Lent. Our goal is to raise $1000 from Ash Wednesday to Easter. 

Join Us

The week before Easter is called Holy Week, and it contains the days of the Easter Triduum, including Maundy Thursday, commemorating the Last Supper, as well as Good Friday, commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus.  Easter Sunday celebrates Jesus rising from the dead - giving us all hope!

Whether you come by yourself or bring family and friends, we look forward to having you with us!

Sunday School Service Project

“Mats for a Mission” November 6th, 2016 thru May 1st, 2017.  to support  “Buffalo's Good Neighbors” The Sunday School will be collecting clean, smoke-free plastic grocery bags to help support Buffalo's Good Neighbors as long term service project.  Please deposit bags in the marked collection bin. Buffalo's Good Neighbors is a local group whose mission is to serve local individuals in need, with the help of the Buffalo community, through supportive donation assistance. Once collected, the plastic bags are then flattened and cut into strips to make plastic “plarn.”  Once the “plarn” is made, volunteers can then use it to crochet water-proof sleeping mats for the homeless. Each mat takes 500-700 bags to complete! In our Sunday School lessons, we are learning that God cares for all people. THAT MANY MIGHT FIND THEIR WAY TO THE WARMTH OF GOD'S CARE THROUGH OUR CONGREGATION...
