Thursday Nights During School Year
Thursday evenings at 5:15 our church enjoys intergenerational fellowship at our Thursday night dinners. Held in Baird Hall, a home cooked meal is available at a low cost (with a maximum amount for families and a special student rate). The meal is followed by a program presented by a representative of our church or from the community.
