Taizé Service

If prayer is a significant practice in your life, yet it sometimes gets crowded, you might enjoy the style of worship created by the community of Taizé in France. Taizé worship is based around structured rhythms of contemplation and silence that provide a way to turn off the world  and experience prayer anew. We would love to have you join us for this special service of prayer, song, and silence.

Beans & Rice Ministry

On the last Saturday of each month beginning at 9 am until supplies run out, we will be distributing rice and dried beans to each family who comes. We will also be providing a sausage biscuit breakfast!

Last Saturday Breakfast!
Returns January 27

Please join us at 8 am on the last Saturday of every month for the best breakfast around! We gather together for fellowship and a hearty breakfast in Thee House and we would love to have you join us!
