We are grateful to Janet and Churchill Franklin for hosting these services on their property at 564 Cider Mill Road in Cornwall.

    In order to make worshipping together as safe as possible, we are implementing a registration system to attend worship. If you plan to attend this worship service on September 20th, we would ask that you sign up in advance.
