“Reformed, Always Reforming” as the old saying goes.
We are children of a Living God who calls forth our creativity. Let us give glory to God who is constantly reforming us.
Join us for worship this autumn as we commemorate the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Reformation with an examination of how God is renewing and reforming us today.
