Cornball Capers, a rollicking night of music and comedy will be presented on Friday, November 3rd and Saturday, November 4th at the West Bloomfield Congregational Church, at the corner of County Road 37 and Routes 5 and 20. WBUCC had put on this Hee-Haw inspired show every few years since the early 1970s, but we’ve taken a break since 2009….and this year we’re comin’ out of retirement!! 2017’s show promises great country music, entertaining performances, and plenty of laughs. The 7 p.m. performance each night costs just $8 per person (maximum of $25 per household-immediate parents and children). With only 200 tickets available each night, you’ll want to get your tickets early!
Tickets can be purchased:
• From cast members
• By mailing a check to the church (PO Box 5, W. Bloomfield NY 14585) made out to WBUCC with Cornball Capers in the memo line. Your tickets will be held at the door, or they can be mailed to you if time allows.
• By calling the church (585-624-1313)
• Or by using the “Online Giving” button found on this website. Simply click on the Get Involved tab above then click Online Giving. You’ll be prompted to by through PayPal. Your tickets will be held at the door, or they can be mailed to you if time allows.

Biblical Inerrancy is relatively new and particularly bad theology. Kepler, Copernicus, and Galileo all began their work with the support, training, or even sponsorship of the church. As we reach out further and further into the Universe, it is time for us to get back to a faith that welcomes mystery and strives to find truth, rather than hide from it behind silly assertions and faithless Bibliolatry. Sermon preached by Corey on July 26th, 2015.
