  • New Altar Rail Cushions

    If you haven't noticed that our altar rail cushions are not in good shape, your knees probably have. The new altar rail cushions have been designed and painted by nationally recognized artist, Linda Mote.  The cushions are based on the seven "I am" statements from John and illustrated, primarily, with scenes from our church.  They are beautiful! (We promise that the new cushion inserts will be thick and better for your knees!)

    If you would like to be a part of this project or have questions, contact Mackie O'Keefe at
