In this update...

2)Vacation Bible School
3) This Weekend at Hope
We will join all three of our weekend services as we come together for a fun summer outdoor worship service at our new building site with worship, free cookout, a first look at the building, and inflatable fun for kids.
Volunteers and staff have been working to put all the landscaping in over the last two weeks. This morning the Dallas Center-Grimes Mustang football team is volunteering to stake and mulch trees! Things are really coming together and it's looking great. So, plan on bringing your lawn chairs and pop up tents to the 10:00 am outdoor service at our new building site, 1335 NE Beaverbrooke Blvd. in Grimes on June 17.
Registration is hot like summer right now. Registrations for kids are coming in (early-bird discount ends Friday, June 15!) and so are registrations for volunteers. This is one of the most fun opportunities for junior high, high school students, and adults to volunteer in any area - junior shepherds, snacks, production, recreation, song leading...check out all the ways you can have a great week at VBS this year.
On Saturday July 21 we will celebrate together at The Hub with inflatables, VBS fun activities for kids and families, worship, and a free cookout. The VBS Kids will sing at the 5:00 pm worship service and the VBS crew will share one our week's best skits with everyone!
This Weekend at Hope
Our, "Fire Up!" teaching series has been a great series of learning about the impact of the Holy Spirit in our lives. This weekend I am excited to be preaching about how the Holy Spirit guides your life in very intimate and practical ways. Join us for worship this Saturday in Grimes at 5:00 pm or Sunday in Johnston at 9:15 am or 11:00 am.
Close with two-minute prayer:
  • Take a minute and pray the Lord's Prayer as Jesus taught.
  • Invite the Holy Spirit into your life right now.
  • Thank God for two things in your life.
  • Ask him for anything.
See you this weekend.

Women's Study: Loving God and Others
Wednesdays, June 13 - July 25, 5:45-7:00 pm OR
Thursdays, June 14 - July 26, 9:00-10:15 am OR
Fridays, June 15 - July 27, 6:00-7:00 am

It's easy to get confused about how to please God. Centuries ago, in answer to this question, Jesus simplified all the rules and regulations of the Law into just two great commands: love God and love people. This study looks at how these two commands define the heart of Christian faith. As you rest in the certain knowledge of what God calls you to, you will be challenged to live these commands out and discover how obeying Jesus will transform not only your life but also the lives of those around you.
