WURSTBRATEN SIGN-UP   Posters for Donation and Volunteer Work Schedules are available Sunday outside the front entrance to the church. Publicity Posters are also available. Indicate “WURSTBRATEN” on any cash donations so they may be correctly counted.

THE TECH TEAM NEEDS YOU! As part of our Worship Enhancement Project, we will begin using a new lyric/video presentation software called Pro Presenter.
