Share Sunday

Sunday, June 3 will be Share Sunday. Both before and during the 10:30 am worship service, we will be offering many ways for us to share our faith with others, both through print media (including distributing a small handout to give away and collecting addresses of those outside the church who might like to receive the Towerbell) and social media (including using Facebook,           Instagram, Snapchat and more before, during and after the service). We are Good News people and we have Good News to share!
