Annual Meeting

Join us for the annual meeting on January 30th, 2022 at 4:00 pm in the sanctuary. Members and non-members are encouraged to join us. The Chinese New Year dinner won't be happening after this meeting due to COVID. Click here to view the agenda.
On Sunday mornings, from 8:30 am - 9:45 am, Gary Warner invites you to join a small group study in the Fireside Room. They are studying "What's So Amazing About Grace". In this six-session Bible study, bestselling author Philip Yancey explores the concept of grace - the one thing the world cannot duplicate and the one thing it craves above all else - and explores what it looks like in action. He also examines how Christians, as the sole dispensers, are doing at lavishing the grace on a world that knows far more of cruelty and unforgiveness than it does of mercy.
