Church Picnic Rescheduled for Sept. 16!

 

Due to the extremely bad weather last Sunday, we have rescheduled the annual Church Picnic to Sunday, September 16 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 and the photo booth is returning again this year.  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 side dish or salad.  Those attending with last names beginning with M-Z are asked to bring a dessert.  Be sure to bring your food in coolers or food safe containers ready to serve.  Many volunteers are needed.  If you can help set up and/or tear down, please sign up on the sheet in the foyer or contact Teri Brillhart or Bethany Neumeyer.

Celebration Sunday

 

On September 2, we will have a Celebration Service.  This will be a time to share how we have seen God’s hand of blessing,  mercy, comfort, provision and strength in our lives.  If you feel led to share a brief testimony of God’s working, please contact one of the elders by Saturday, September 1.  We will give praise and thanksgiving back to God for the many ways He cares for us especially through the church body.

 

Dinner and a Movie


The Tanzania Mission Team invites you to Family Night on August 3 from 6:00pm to 9:30pm here at the church.  There will be an Italian dinner beginning at 6:00pm in the Fellowship Hall followed by a time of praise and worship at 7:00pm.  The movie “I Can Only Imagine” will be shown beginning at 7:30pm in the Sanctuary.  Please sign up in the church lobby.  We would love to see you there.  All donations will help fund our mission trip to Tanzania.

New Adult Education class

On June 10, 2018, we will be starting a combined Adult Education class in the auditorium.  We plan to start with a series entitled “The Holiness of God” by R. C. Sproul.  This is a classic six-week course that includes a 30-minute video presentation with discussion to follow.  All adults are invited to join us.  The video will begin at 11:25am.

Celebration Sunday

On May 6, we will have a Celebration Service.  This will be a time to share how we have seen God’s hand of blessing,  mercy, comfort, provision and strength in our lives.  If you feel led to share a brief testimony of God’s working, please contact one of the elders by Saturday, May 5.  We will give praise and thanksgiving back to God for the myriad ways He cares for us especially through the church body.

 

Men’s Competition Night

Be sure to come to the annual Men’s Competition Night on Saturday, May 12 starting at 5:00pm at the Altman’s home.  This is a night of great food and fellowship.  Why not use this as an opportunity to reach out to a neighbor?  If you have any questions, please see John Dudley.

 

Easter Sunday Worship Changes

Easter lilly

There will be TWO different services of worship on Easter Sunday morning (April 1):

9:00 AM – Remembrance Service with communion

10:00 AM – Fellowship Time

10:30 AM – Worship Service

Tom Borck will be sharing a message during the Remembrance Service and Mark Ramsey will be giving the message during the Worship Service.

The Praise Team and Choir have been busy preparing songs for both services.

We will NOT have Adult or Children’s Sunday School on Easter, however there will be Children’s church during the 10:30 am Worship Service but not during the Remembrance Service.

Between the two services, there will be a time of fellowship downstairs in the Fellowship Hall.  We are asking people to bring Easter breads (cut and ready to serve) to share during this time.
