Please stay for a few minutes after church, or come early for the 10 am service and enjoy a cup of coffee and some time of visiting, catching up, and meeting new folks. Thanks to the DOK for this wonderful new opportunity of hospitality! 

Welcome to a New School Year!

     Child of my heart, may the blessing of the Holy Trinity go with you today. 
                              May God’s strength keep you secure. 
                      May Christ our true Wisdom guide your learning. 
                         May the Holy Spirit make you glad and good. 
    May the enfolding of the Trinity hold you and bring you, at day’s end, safely home.
