From the Pastor

Dear College Avenue Friends,

Picnic anyone? This Sunday the church will supply the hotdogs (and a dessert auction) if you’ll bring some tasty sidedishes for our cookout after worship. The occasion? Our annual Homecoming celebration. It’s the day we commit ourselves to proclaiming, “Whoever you are, wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!”

This year’s Homecoming falls on 9-11, a day when we remember that the “Gospel of Welcome” is the remedy for hatred and violence in our world. Come and celebrate our urgent mission of hospitality, compassion, and peace. And bring a friend.


Pastor Michael
