Come see what’s growing on the Green!
The “Church on the Green,” as we are affectionately known around town, opens our doors to all. We aspire to be a church that feels “like home” for a first time visitor, while offering a lifetime of opportunities to grow in faith and service. We are diverse, authentic, compassionate and community-minded. Rooted and grounded in the love of Christ (Ephesians 3:17), we are devoted to feeding body and spirit. Could we be the church you are looking for? Come and see!

Many thanks to all who helped in any way to make Vacation Bible Camp (July 12-18) an awesome week of fun and learning. Each day, campers explored ways that Jesus rescues us: when we are lonely, when we are worried, when we struggle, when we do wrong things, and when we feel powerless. Dinner, music, crafts, Bible discovery lessons, games, skits featuring Pastor Ruth and Ms. Jen, and our KidVid cinema made for a lively program
while we were all “Shipwrecked” together for the week. Campers filled a treasure chest with daily food offerings for our Food Pantry—peanut butter, jelly, spaghetti sauce, canned tuna and canned fruit. Spectacular decorations transformed the Parish House into a tropical island complete with vines, palm trees and a waterfall. Visit the church Facebook Page for photos from each day.
