Something Wonderful

Many years ago, Steve Maier suggested to Rev. Barnaby that this title be used continuously to describe the upcoming worship services. On the occasion of our annual meeting following worship, Rev. Barnaby reflected on what kind of relationships among us might make that truth in advertising. Preceded by our Rhubarb Festival Sat. June 5 (10-12).
