  • Friendship Park, located to the north of the Quonset hut, was constructed in 2013 as a welcoming space for church and community use. During the summer months, on the third Friday of each month we host “Movie in the Park,” showing family-friendly movies on a large screen, along with games and light refreshments
  • Monthly Potluck meals: the third Sunday of the month, immediately following morning worship
  • Wednesday Suppers: 5:30 PM weekly from Sept – May; the meal is prepared and provided for a free-will offering; no reservations needed.
