Last names, A-L … bring non-sweet sides such as:  stuffing, corn pudding, green bean casserole, veggies, squash, sweet potato casserole and any of your favorite foods that go with turkey.  Even a salad or two!

Last names, M-Z ….bring sweet sides such as:  pumpkin, pecan or apple pie, cakes of all flavors, fruit desserts.  Anything for the sweet tooth, including fresh fruit.

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.
