A mid-week Worship Service is offered this fall on Wednesdays at 5:15 PM in the Hallam Chapel. At 6:00 PM we have a pot luck supper and at 6:30 we have a book discussion. This month the book will be Rowan Williams' Being Disciples, which costs $8 and is available in the parish office. Please feel free to bring a dish to share for the potluck meal, and let Deacon Ellen know if you will be joining the group at deaconellen98@yahoo.com.
