 #1: Bible Study Countdown

Our 9:15 am children’s and youth Bible Study classes have been on a break this summer. On Sunday, August 6th they will start back up with all the children being promoted to their new classes matching their grade level for the coming school year. Mark this date on your calendar and bring the whole family as we go deeper into the Bible.


Next Sunday July 23rd, is a big day for our church as we get to meet Evan who is the  candidate for our next Youth Director. He and his wife, Ashleigh, will be here for a meet and greet next Sunday at 9:05 in room A 107. After meeting with Evan and getting to know more about him, church members who are present will take a vote of affirmation. All are invited, especially our youth and their parents.

Next Sunday, July 23rd, Pastor Brent will meet with those who have been   reading “The Prodigal Church” at 5:00 pm. It’s not too late to start reading the book this week and join the discussion. Visit our library today for information on how to order, or purchase one online at major book sellers.


Our Sunday Evening Services will break for the Summer. They will resume in September.
