Starting in September we will no longer have Sunday Evening Prayer Meetings.

There will continue to be a time of prayer before the service (10:00 – 10:40 AM) that is open to anyone, anytime.

We will also be starting a Monthly Prayer Meeting on the first Wednesday of the month beginning 9/5. We are encouraging the whole church to come. They will be from 6:45 – 8:00 PM at The Meeting Place and childcare will be provided.

“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer” (Mt. 21:22).


The schedule is being made for this Fall and we could use more volunteers.

If you would like to serve on a Worship Team, contact Pastor Adam.

We could use people on Welcome Team, Set-Up, Tear-Down, and Scripture Readers. But the biggest need right now is for Kids’ Corner workers and Sunday School teachers! In case you haven’t noticed we’ve had a huge influx of children in our church. And, we are starting a new curriculum this Fall! Contact Cassie if you are interested in helping out somewhere.

If you would like to help the Johnson family as they were recently admitted for pre-term labor, please contact the Avinks. THANKS!

Tomorrow is Pastor Nathan’s first Sunday back from Sabbatical!

He and his family would like to invite anyone interested to come over to their house for lunch after the service tomorrow to catch up and hear how their time was this summer.

So they can know how much food to have, please RSVP if you plan to come. You can RSVP to Nathan and/or Andrea as late as the church service tomorrow.
