It’s only October but it is time to think about joining the Choir to sing for Christmas on Sunday, December 18 during the worship service.  The first practice will be on Tuesday, November 8 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.  Won’t you consider joining us this Christmas season?…every voice is welcome.  Contact Carol Stanik if you are interested in participating this year so she can have a songbook and CD prepared for you at the first rehearsal.

 

 

Church Picnic on September 18

The Church Picnic is scheduled for Sunday, September 18 immediately following the worship service outside under the tents.   All are welcome (newcomers, friends, past attendees, occasional church visitors).  There will be inflatables for all ages.  Come dressed casually and bring your own lawn chairs and any lawn games you would like.  The meat and drinks will be provided.  Those attending with last names beginning with A-L are asked to bring a dessert.  Those attending with last names beginning with M-Z are asked to bring a salad or side dish.  Be sure to bring your food in coolers or food safe containers ready to serve.   We have a signup sheet in the foyer for you to volunteer your help for the picnic.  Please sign up or contact Scott Bernhard.

Believer’s Baptism-May 15

On Sunday, May 15, will have a Believer’s Baptism  in the Sanctuary following the worship service.  Water baptism is an outward sign or testimony of the inward work of the Holy Spirit, who baptizes the believer into the Body of Christ.   (Matthew 3:11, 1 Corinthians 12:13)   In doing this, we identify ourselves with our risen Lord and Savior.  If you are ready to publicly declare your faith as a follower of Jesus Christ,  please talk to an Elder.
