Welcome to Our Church!
PARKING ALERT! For years, the high school across the intersection let us use their lot for Sabbath morning overflow. But now they're undergoing major renovation, and that lot is gone! The good news is that the Neighborhood Church, seven blocks north, is letting us use the south section of their lot for our overflow. It's a mere six-minute walk (the pastor can do it in 5:15!). We're already asking our members to park there, and several are. So if you arrive at our church and all spaces happen to be full, drop your family off and head north seven blocks. The lot is on your left. Bring an umbrella for sprinkly Sabbaths. CLICK HERE for a helpful map!
READ OR LISTEN TO "FAMILY COUNCIL," Pastor Maylan Schurch's March 8 sermon for the dedication of little Jakob Schlehuber. First you'll hear Shelley Schurch, partway into her children's story. Then Pastor Maylan walks us through Joshua 24's great "family council," and we'll find what it has to say to us. As the sermon concludes, Joe and Hillary bring Jakob forward, and Hillary prays a heartfelt prayer for their little boy. (Click audio, or click text to read the sermon.)
