Bring a sweet or savory goody to share – no peanuts please. We look forward to having you join us!

Allergy Notice

Due to severe peanut allergies in our congregation, we can absolutely have NO peanut products in our building.  This applies to any day of the week and for any activity you may be attending in our building.

We have attendees with fragrance allergies. We have designated the first six rows of the left section of our sanctuary (as you look at the stage) for them.  If you wear fragrances, we would appreciate you avoiding that area.
