Bible Study
with Pastor Lauren


Join this June study led by Pastor Lauren. From 6-7pm, we will work from the book of James as we drink coffee, read scripture and discuss how this scripture calls and challenges us. Remaining dates are June 12, 19 and 26 in DAC 417.
A Sweet Welcome

Caring members of the congregation have shared many delicious treats over the years. We thought it would be neat to welcome new Senior Co-Pastors, Jason and Estee, with a sampling of the goodies we have enjoyed! The Staff Parish Relations Committee (SPR) will host receptions on July 6 and 7 after each worship service to welcome them. We invite any of you that wish to take part to sign up to bring your favorite cookies, candies or "church lady chocolate cake" to share. Please contact Cathy Dill  or sign up here!

Growing in Purpose
2 Timothy 3:14-17

We know we should eat healthy. We know we should exercise. We know we should tend to the wellness of our spiritual lives. But why? We hope you will join us this week as we look at the different "whys" of our lives and how we are called to live those out that we may grow on purpose and with a purpose.

Children's Ministries
Summer Sunday School

Kids have the opportunity each week to choose their own adventure... cooking, Legos, STEM, recreation, crafts and board games just to name a few! Each week we'll explore a spiritual habit as we learn the importance of spending time with God, spending time with others, using our gifts, and sharing our story . We're going to have a blast learning and growing together! Congregation, we need your help!  Children's Ministry asks you to please prayerfully consider teaching at least two Sundays this summer. All lessons will be prepared, the kids are awesome, and you get an opportunity to model the act of service for our children. Please consider this very special opportunity!  Contact Jenny Smith to sign up!
