If you join us online, your prayer requests and celebrations  (from the Facebook Chat) will be shared with the celebrants and read out during the service so that all will be able to hear them. 

If online, join everyone after the service for our virtual coffee hour!  Kids will go into their own breakout rooms for games, and adults can catch up on our Easter plans. Bring your coffee or tea! Click here to join in.
