Come Worship Red, White & Blue

In preparation for Independence Day, we will remember in worship God’s call as we have heard it in scripture and in prophetic voices of our country’s history. In reading and song, let us renew our national vision and pray for our country, that we may thank God for our blessings and in turn, bless the world.


Wear Red To Church This Weekend!
