Newsletters

Most months of the year, we publish a newsletter that includes such things as a cover article from our pastor, current news and announcements, something "Just for Kids", and a calendar of events, liturgical dates, and birthdays and anniversaries of the congregation's members and friends. The newsletters are available to download as PDFs on this page, which also lists topics of the pastor's cover article and any other items of note for each particular newsletter.
