Church-wide Picnic
Our annual Memorial Day church picnic is right around the corner. On Sunday, May 24th, we will gather on the south lawn (following our special 10:00am worship service) to eat and fellowship with one another. The church will provide all of the hamburgers, hotdogs, and buns. A special request has been placed in the information pouch of some of our ABFs asking for help with other elements of the meal. We are also asking each family to bring their favorite dessert to share. Please bring blankets and/or camping chairs for you and your family.
UPDATE: We’ve had quite a few people ask about the picnic on Sunday. We will make an “official” call on Thursday, but as of Tuesday afternoon, we’re thinking we WILL NOT have the picnic this Sunday. It is supposed to rain the rest of the week and the ground is already sopping wet. We will keep you posted!

KidQuest Volunteers
Join us for a prayer safari this summer, June 15th-19th! Here’s how to help:
  •  In the children’s building, you will find a short form to sign up—return the completed form to the offering plate or
    church office!
  • Join us Thursday evening from 6:30-8:00pm in the downstairs area of the children’s building as we start to prepare decorations that will transform our buildings into a true safari adventure! No artistic talent? No problem! We’ll have a project for everyone who wants to be involved!
  • Save your paper towel rolls. We will be needing these for a craft, so any that you can save and turn in the office or
    donation areas would be greatly appreciated!
