Worship on Sunday, August 9 at 11:00 a.m.

Come join us for worship and take a peak at the nave while a new audio-video system is being installed. The Prayer of the Day prepares us for Sunday’s theme: O God our defender, storms rage around and within us and cause us to be afraid. Rescue your people from despair, deliver your sons and daughters from fear, and preserve us in the faith of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
