Summer Services....
Our worship service will be held at 9 am on Sundays during the summer months.

Monthly Sunday Morning Breakfast....
Volunteers are being sought to prepare breakfast for our monthly Sunday morning breakfast. Please see Pastor Mike if you are able to assist with this.

 

Blue Jean Sunday....
In order to cut expenses we will no longer be using a landscaping/parking lot cleaning service. Instead, every last Sunday of the month will be "Blue Jean Sunday". So, come to church in your work clothes and after a delicious breakfast we will work together to beautify our buildings and grounds.

Welcome Committee for New Family...
On June 1st we will finally be moving a family in need of affordable housing into our parsonage house on the property. They have as much potential to be a blessing to our community, as we have to be to them. To help make this possible and show our spirit of hospitality we are looking for individuals who would greet them when they arrive, put together a welcome package and help create anything else to help them feel welcome and at home.

 

Outdoor Family Movie Series Volunteers...
This summer we are starting our outdoor movie series again and we need your help to make it happen. These movies will run one night a week for four weeks in June and July. Please consider helping us make it an even bigger success than it was last year by joining the team. For more information contact Pastor Mike.

 

S.K.R.E.A.M...
The church is taking the leap of faith this summer by starting a 6-week low cost summer camp for area children along with a "Leaders in Training" teen mentorship program. This is made possible by a generous $10,000 grant and over $1000 in outside donations. What we still need are adult volunteers of all ages to join us as relationship builders and program aids. Your role would mainly be to help our kids feel valued and loved by your attention and relationship along with some small amounts of programming assistance. The summer camp in planned for students from 2nd grade through 5th grade and will run from 12:00 noon - 5:00 pm on Monday through Friday from July 6th to August 14th. For more information please contace Pastor Mike.

 

"Second Harvest" Food Pantry: Project Planning Volunteers...
Our church has started talking about organizing a once-a-week food pantry in the "Friendly Circle" garage space. This could be a very exciting and life giving project but it will not happen without the help of people like you. Please consider becoming involved by speaking to Pastor Mike.

Mother's Day and Father's Day Contributions...
Contributions for Mother's Day and/or Father's Day may be made in memory of or in honor of someone. This information will be printed in a special insert in the Sunday bulletin. Contirbutions may be dropped in the offering plate or mailed to the church office. Contributions for Mother's Day are due by Saturday May 9th, while contributions for Father's Day are due by Wednesday, June 17th.

Worship Music...
Worship music is like a prayer that can be spoken in many different languages together by many different people. The more kinds..... the more beautiful it becomes. We are looking to expand the way we do music so that more and more people can pray and rejoice along with us. Please speack to Pastor Mike if you have a musical talent and would be willing to help us expand our Sunday worship experience.

 

After School Program....
The summer movie lunch program was such a success that we are growing it into a once a week after school program during the year. Please consider offering your help in any of these ways:
      1) Financial support
      2) Leading an interesting or unique activity one week
      3) Volunteering to help run weekly programs
      4) Serving on the Board of Advisors

 

Worship Cancellation Plan...
In the event of a major snowstorm or other emergencies, it is possible that in the best interest of the safety and well being of our worshippers, we may cancel our Sunday morning worship services. Any cancellation decisions will be made by 8 am on Sunday morning. While this should be a rare situation, we want to make sure that our members are informed about any cancellations.
