  • Community Worship and Coffee with the pastors

Afterwards, grab a quick break, get a coffee and come back at 11:00 for Coffee with the Pastors.  You can laugh, talk, share stories and discuss the weekly sermon or just listen.  The same link will be used for both events so log in at 10:00 or 11:00 am.
