Our church home since 2001. I serve as deacon at St. John’s. A very thoughtful, spiritual family. The “Breaking Bread Together” program is especially cool, in which four families share a dinner together roughly four times a year. We’ve met some great people this way. One of these groups even went to Paris together.
