Upcoming Events

Special Guest Preacher: Rev. Evalyn Wakhusama of Kenya - On Sunday October 13th Rev. Evalyn Wakhusama will preach at our worship services. Rev. Wakhusama is the founder of the Nambale Magnet School in Kenya, dedicated to helping children who are impacted by the HIV/AIDS epidemic to get quality education and be future community leaders. Wakhusama is only the second female to be ordained in the Anglican Church in Kenya. She received the Lux et Veritas award from Yale Divinity School in 2011 related to her inspiring work. Revs. Adam and Ashley were classmates of Rev. Wakhusama at Yale Divinity School and are thrilled that the Deacons, Open & Affiming, and Outreach ministries have invited her to preach about how God connects her ministry with ours. Please join us for this special worship service.
