Recent Highlights

THE STORY: On September 7th & 8th at all worship services, we relaunched our study of "The Story," beginning with Chapter 1, "The Creation."  Each week throughout this Fall season, small groups will meet at various times & days at SOTH.  Please consider hosting a small group in your home for a more casual setting!

PRAYER SHAWL/BLANKET NEEDS:  Our Prayer Shawl/Blanket ministry delivers prayer shawls & prayer blankets to people in need of comfort during difficult times. Each shawl & blanket is "like a hug from God," surrounding the recipient in support, love, & faith from our congregation. If you know of someone who has experienced a loss, a season of stress, or another change in life who could benefit from a prayer shawl or blanket, please contact the Office with their information.

DINNER TIME! Join us each Wednesday at 6PM in Fellowship Hall for our weekly church-wide dinner!  Meals will be catered in, & attendees can enjoy some food & fellowship before Confirmation & "The Story" Bible Study take place right after.  Bring your family & friends to join us!
