Each year, our congregation sets aside one day for a Wisdom Celebration. Those members of our congregation who are or will become 90 years of age or older are recognized during this worship service. The entire congregation is invited to attend, meet them and their families, hear their life stories and sing their favorite hymns. Don’t miss this annual celebration service which has been going on for over 10 years.
