Confirmation classes will be held Sunday mornings 9:00 - 10:00 for children in 7th and 8th grades.  Registration forms for both programs are available in the back of the church. We would appreciate early registration so materials can be ordered.

These exciting programs will commence on Rally Sunday, September 7th.

Teachers are needed - if you are interested, please see Linda Walter.

Prayer Group

The prayer group will discontinue meeting during the summer months since so many people will be traveling.  Please watch the newsletter for the date this will start again.

Special Music

We are looking for special music during the summer.  If you play an instrument or sing, please let Pat Jensen know - 757-369-4152 or see her after worship.

We Need Addresses!!!

It is time to update our MLC directory and we need your help!!  We have been blessed with many new people in the past year or so and have tried to keep up with addresses, but are missing quite a few. 

We would appreciate it if everyone (even if you think we already have it) would send their address, phone number and email to Sue Fletcher at and she will compile all this information.

It would also be helpful if you would provide your birthday/anniversary in this email.  We are sure we are missing many of those also.  Thank you for your help!!!


Beginning on Sunday, May 11, 2014, a nursery will be available during the worship service.  The nursery will be staffed by two adults.  The age of children should be birth through preschool.  You may drop your children off at 9:45 a.m. and pick them up after worship.   You may also retrieve your child for communion if you wish.  Any parent or church member may sign up to volunteer in our nursery.  We would like to have at least 6 people signed up to take turns each week.  A sign-up sheet will be available in the rear of the worship space.  Please contact Angela Bentley, Maureen Smyth, or Carol VanBatavia with questions.
