We Welcome Guest Preacher Rev. Dr. Mike Hatfield to our pulpit today! Mike is Pastor of our sister church, Chatham Heights Baptist Church, in Martinsville.

We light the candle of Joy, rejoicing in God’s good will for all creation, and opening ourselves to God’s gentle, transforming love. May God fill us with the kind of joy that cannot be contained, but must be shared.
