Dear Old Ship,

I know it’s only April, but I’ve been starting to think about the winding-up of Sunday school year… sigh…

BUT there are still some very cool things coming up:

May 31st(Sunday) – Children’s Chapel – Join us for a special service (before regular service!) for those children normally in the Parish house during the “adult” worship.  This service will feature a Story to be brought to life by Beverly Tricco. ~Service will be held in the Nursery at the Parish Hall on Sunday, May 31st, from 9:30-10:00 a.m.

We hope to see you there! And by all means bring your friends; the more, the merrier!
