God's Blessings to You!
From the desk of Pastor Quaya, I say "A-LO-HA”, as Matt and I have just returned from our 10 year anniversary trip to Hawaii! :-). Hoping that this message finds you and yours happy and healthy! We have a very busy August and hope you can come out and enjoy ALL of the opportunities to fellowship with your church family!
THIS FRIDAY -come out to the Skunes farm and “Harvest to Help End Hunger" as we pick sweet corn for the Great Plains Food Bank!
We have a couple weeks left of our "Talking with God" series and have been on quite the journey learning how to pray and to share prayer with others. The author, Adam Weber, will be joining us "LIVE" to discuss why he wrote the book!

Message from Missions Team:

Dear Church Family,
It is with great joy that we share with you the news that we have provided funding to Spirit Lake Ministry to purchase a transport van that will allow people to attend worship services, both adults and children. Please watch this short video from Pastor Mike Flowers extending his thanks.
We are asking for your support in this funding in the amount of $10,000 so we will be passing around the mission jars during worship services in hopes that you can help us to fully fund this outreach mission purpose and support the fruit and disciples of Christ made through this ministry.
