WORSHIP SERVICES - Exciting news!!! Starting this Sunday May 9, 2021 we will be offering 3 options of worship service each Sunday. You are welcome to join one, two, or all three. The worship opportunities will be 8:00 am outside worship near the pavilion (weather permitting). Please bring a lawn chair, blanket, or something to sit on. 9:30 am indoor worship service...no "save a seat" required so please come if you are available. Please continue to allow 2 seats between you and the next family or individual that is not in your party. We ask that masks be worn while moving but may be taken off once at your seat (think restaurant rules). 9:30 am online at YouTube and Facebook or on demand after the 9:30 am service. Please feel free to share the service online with your friend group.
NEW MEMBER CLASS- Have you ever thought, "you know, I'd like to join that church!" but found your schedule wouldn't work. We are going to offer a 2 Sunday class for those who would like to join the church or for those who have joined the church and would like a refresher course. The classes will be held on Sunday, May 16 & 23 from 10:45- 11:45 in the worship space and will cover different topics so it is suggested to be at both if possible. New members will join on Sunday May 30 during the 9:30 am worship service. For more information, please contact Pastor Troy at email@example.com.
MISSION- We are always accepting donations of non-perishable food to restock the food pantry. If you would like to bring food, please do so on Sunday morning or stop by church from 8:00 - noon Monday through Friday. We are also always in need of volunteers to help out on Fridays from 2:00-4:00 PM. The food pantry has been moved upstairs, for better access for our volunteers.
