We are a small, warm, diverse congregation, which celebrated our 110th Anniversary this past June. We are involved in much outreach in our own community and beyond. We are very involved in the larger church, the United Church of Christ, as well. Our young people frequently participate in worship in a variety of ways. We also have a Men's Group, a Women's group, a knitting group (the Knit Pickers) and all-church and community potluck dinners the first Friday of every month (except July and August).
