Shelley’s Garden: Any day, any time

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA“Shelley’s Garden”, to the right as you approach the main doors of the church, is open at all times for anyone who seeks a place of beauty for quiet contemplation. It was created in memory of Shelley Pentecost, a lovely singer with a joyful and generous heart who died in 2011. It was among her final wishes to have a garden like this created for the church.


Sundays at 8:30 a.m.: A quiet, reflective service with no music.

Sundays at 10:00 a.m.: A service with music (mainly contemporary) and sometimes choir, with Ministry to Children, followed by Coffee Hour
