A great evening on the Ohio

How very special it was to experience an evening with truly perfect Cincinnati weather! Our church members enjoyed a delicious buffet dinner on a BB Riverboat and embarked on meaningful and fun conversation in a night filled with sights along the beautiful Ohio River.

More pics to be posted as we receive them from our attendees.

#WeekendPlans: A Day of Rainbows, Leprechauns, and Maybe a Party and Unicorn

Okay, now that I have your attention—the message for Sunday, March 17, 2019, actually centers on the deep well of wisdom we have within us and what it means to access that.

My sermon, “You’ve Always Had the Power All Along, My Dear” combines the central concept from the Wizard of Oz with the story from Gospel of the Wedding at Cana. ~ Guest Minister, Rev. Jenn Tafel

Join us, Sunday at 10:30 am, for hospitality; 11:00 am for Worship Service.
