On Sunday, August 26 we will celebrate Eucharist at 10 am with our brothers and sisters of the Gaddiel Acquaah Memorial Methodist Church and their minister the Reverend Thomas Atta-Akosah. Immediately following the 10 am service, the congregation will gather outside the main doors of the building for a commemorative photo. A lunch of traditional Ghanaian foods, a Taste of Ghana in the Diaspora, will be served under the trees in front of the building.

Introductory Exploration on Sunday, Sept. 17, 11:15 a.m. in the Library: Please come to learn about this International program of pastoral care! Called a "School for God's service," it can guide us to better serve people who are sick, bereaved, lonely or just need some TLC at the moment -- through an initial series of classes.
Our goal for the summit is to connect all the activities going on in our church already and to explore ways to capture and focus new energy. Membership activities foster our relationship with each other – the body of our church – and are a part of our collective spiritual journey. These programs help express our love for one another. Our work both within and outside our church is part of our worship of God.·
