175th ANNIVERSARY       

1848 – 2023 

Our Anniversary weekend gave glory to God and to our ancestors. We appreciate the responses from five former pastors, sixteen of our 50 year members, and two former musicians. We had a community meal and tractor blessing on Saturday and a reception after worship on September 10. Rev. Fabiola Grandon Mayer, the Conference Director of Connectional ministries gave an encouraging address. We are ready to begin our next adventuresome year.  See picture gallery below

THE WOODEN ROCKERS PLAYS AGAIN on MARCH 9

 We kick off our 2024 Events with our 25th season of Chili Supper Cook Off.  The idea originated with Steve and Clarence when they visited another church making money with a chili supper. The men have loved the idea of bringing their hot and spicy, mild and delicious chili to the church for a little fun competition. Corn bread, crackers, cheese and drinks make this meal a simple delight on a cold late winter early spring day. Come to the church between 5 pm and 7:30 pm. Free will donations. Everyone gets to vote. To sign up for chili making see Jason or Jack, or leave us a message.
