July 6, 2014 – Religious Liberty Sunday

On the weekend in which we commemorate our nation’s independence, we will celebrate our freedom on Religious Liberty Sunday. The Sanctuary Choir has a stirring rendition of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” and Dr. Howell will deliver a dramatic monologue based on the life of the 18th century Baptist minister James Ireland, “From my Palace in Culpepper.”

Welcome Paul Freeman!

We welcome Paul Freeman as our new Minister of Music! Upon a unanimous and enthusiastic recommendation from the Music Search Committee and the Personnel Committee, the Deacons voted unanimously February 23, 2014 to hire Paul Freeman as our church’s minister of music.
