   In 2015, June 7th marks the beginning of Ordinary Time.  The paraments are the color green which signifies spiritual growth.  Most of the church year is considered Ordinary Time, when no prominent festival or theme is celebrated.  The liturgical term “ordinary” means that which is standard, normative, usual or typical.  Week after week, Sunday “ordinarily” celebrates the resurrection and unfolding of the new creation.  This is in accord with the Reformed tradition, for which the Lord’s Day has always had a dominant role whether or not annual festivals were maintained.  Ordinary Time lasts until Advent for a period of 23-28 weeks.      



Fall Schedule for 3B

Attention 3B regulars and "new bees:"  September 8th is the start date for our next 3B session.  It will continue until Tuesday, November 24th.  As always, we will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00  to 11:00 AM in the Edith Boyd Lounge.  We celebrate the continuation of our fourth year of exercising, learning, laughter, and faithfulness.  Any newly interested people should contact Lois or Alice for availability.  A one-time equipment fee is required.

Missional Transformation: Discovering God's Dream
The Church has a divine calling, and its life and purpose are not its own.
The church exists to discern and participate in God’s mission.
That is why we have embarked on this journey with other churches in the Presbytery of Wabash Valley. For more information and to learn our timeline for this journey, please click here.
Our Heritage
Shirley Ryan, church historian, has been working on a new exhibit in the Heritage Room, on the west side of the narthex. This exhibit highlights the various places we have held worship services during construction, renovation, and fire repair. Also, showcased are the many and various Women’s Association activities over the years. Stop in before or after worship or any other time to enjoy our rich heritage.
