Elementary/Teen Parent Meeting Sunday Night

We want to invite the parents of all our school-age children to a special meeting after church Sunday night. We will be discussing our plans and activities for this summer.

Memorial Day Picnic, Sunday, May 30

It has been more than a year since we have had a time of fellowship together outside the walls of our buildings. On May 30, we will enjoy a picnic at Phelps Grove Park in place of our Sunday evening service. We are looking for a great time of fellowship together.

GriefShare Kicks Off Thursday Evening

We have seen God change lives through our GriefShare ministry. Anyone who is struggling with the loss of a loved one, regardless of age or circumstances, will find a loving and compassionate environment where they will learn the comforting truths from the Word of God to help them cope and heal from the pain of their loss. GriefShare meets in our Fellowship Hall Thursdays at 6 p.m.

Why A Family Service?

Our Sunday evening Family Service is not just named that way. On Sunday mornings we have Sunday School and children’s churches. On Wednesdays we have Awana for the kids. Our Family Service is the time each week that the whole family can sit together, worship together, and hear the Word of God together. This Sunday night we continue our series on the Fruits of the Spirit to encourage and equip us to live our lives with the reality of God’s presence. For fun, we have given it a baseball theme. These Family Services include videos, games and activities for kids and adults. Don’t miss a week!

Big Changes Coming For Wednesday Nights In June

Beginning Wednesday night, June 2, we will launch Next Steps, a new format for our Wednesday evening services. Every believer needs to be equipped to walk with the Lord and serve the Lord in every stage of their life. Over the next few weeks we will lay out for you the exciting opportunities we are planning to help you identify and take the next step in your walk with the Lord.
