Who Is My Neighbor?
Luke 10:25-37

In the story of The Good Samaritan, Jesus tells us to be neighbors to all of our brothers and sisters, but when was the last time you were a neighbor to the person who actually lives next door or across the street? Join us this week as we dive in to what it means to be Good Samaritans in our own neighborhoods as we seek to share the love, grace, and peace of our God with those who live closest to us.

Children's Ministries
Summer Sunday School

Hey guys, mark your calendars! We're kicking off Summer in children's ministry on Sunday, June 2,  with our summer theme Blast Off!  

Kids will 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 will 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!
You can be some of the most important and influential people in our kids' lives. Make the most of the opportunities you have to invest in our kids, build connections with them, share your faith and help them to discover their own. Your presence and time with our kids matter more then you may ever know!

Children's Ministry has several opportunities to serve in Sunday School. We are asking 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!
