Worship Services on Island

At our website, we’ve tried to include everything, but if we’ve missed your event you can easily add it yourself by using the handy “Post Your Event” button in the upper right of the calendar or by sending an email with the details to<>. And, we can make it easy for your events to show up in a nice calendar on your website, too, so you only have to post them once. Your website can show only your events or those plus other categories from the calendar that you choose.

To help coordinate the events we’ve taken the major events for Summer 2018 and compiled them into a nifty little Celebrate Summer 2018 online calendar. Just point your browser at to get the lowdown on everything planned so far for next summer. Then check back from time to time as more events will be added as dates are firmed up.

ON THIS DATE of January 12, 1943, the Office of Price Administration announced that standard frankfurters/hot dogs/wieners would be replaced by ‘Victory Sausages.’ Sixty years later, the silliness continued in our nation’s capitol as on March 11, 2003, US Representatives Bob Ney and Walter Jones had the Congressional cafeterias change their menus from French fries and French toast to Freedom fries and Freedom toast.
DID YOU KNOW THAT the placement of a donkey’s eyes in its’ heads enables it to see all four feet at all times!
WORD OF THE DAY: silver-tongued (SIL-ver-TUHNGD) which means persuasive; eloquent. Silver-tongued may be named for the pleasing resonance of a silver bell.
