Bible Club is Over

I just wanted to thank each and every person who volunteered their time or resources for Bible Club. We studied the Fruit of the Spirit, and our prayer is that every child who attended will have a fruitful relationship with Jesus so He can grow this fruit in their lives! I know that I was challenged to become more Christ like in preparing the lessons, and I hope that every one of us would desire to bear His fruit in every area of our lives!   Jan Hoffman


Grow Groups Begin on August 28th!

Our Grow Groups and Family Night meals will resume on Wednesday, August 28th. Sign-ups for specific Grow Groups will begin on August 11th, and will continue on August 18th and 25th. Whether you were involved in a group last year or not, we encourage you to join a group this Fall. This is the foundation for our discipleship, and it is also a great way to get to know fellow church members better as we not only look into God's Word, but also "do life" together!  More details about the specific groups will be provided as sign-up time gets closer.


Back to School Bash - August 17th

Back by popular request, we will have our Back-to-School Bash on Saturday August 17th beginning at 4:00.  The Slip 'n Slide will be open from 4:00 to 5:30, a potluck dinner will be held at 6:00, board games and gym games will follow the dinner until around 8:30 when it gets dark enough to show an outside movie behind the church. If you are planning to attend, bring your swimsuit or shorts and a

t-shirt for the slip and slide (and clothes to change into!), food to share at the dinner, any games you would like to play, and lawn chairs/blankets for the movie. Fun for all ages!!!


We Need to Print a New Directory!

Our church directory is outdated, so we would like to print a new one to help us stay in contact with each other. Beginning on August 18th, we will have directory update forms available before and after the service, so you can check your current information to make sure it is still accurate. We will also have a photographer taking new, updated pictures of all the families/individuals in our church. There is no specific time to sign up - just plan to stop by, review and correct your information, and get an updated picture taken.


Outreach Team Sign-ups in September

Many of our Outreach Teams have continued to serve and minister through the summer, but for those who did not have the opportunity to join a team last year, we will hold sign-ups for these groups during September. We will be sharing the specific focus of each group to help you determine where God would want you to serve!
