WORSHIPING / CONNECTING / SERVING

We are looking for servants to serve in several different ways and places. 
We are putting together a list of servants that would be able and willing to help serve in a variety of ways.  It might be in the form of "handyman" work around the building to helping lead a ministry.  It is really simple to let us know what and where you might be willing to serve.  Click the below "Serve" link and fill out the form.  This will let us know who we might contact to help serve when a need arises.

Non of these serve areas requires a "college degree," in fact, training can and will be provided for any area in which you are willing to serve, but might need a little direction and support.



HALF-TIME FOR MEN

Half-Time is a gathering for men to enjoy fellowship and discuss topics for Christian growth.  Our fall/winter discussions will be based on a short presentation by Eugene Peterson called,  "Perseverance: A Long Obedience in the Same Direction."  Facilitators will be Chuck Albers, Larry Gill, Mike Keller, and Harold Utley.  We will gather in rooms 9-11 at 8:15 for breakfast and discussion (plenty of room for social-distancing).  We try to dismiss at 9:30 am, and will usually make that goal.  Harold will lead the first gathering on Sept. 19.  

Schedule for upcoming months: 
October 3, 17, 31
November 14
December 5, 19 

Come and join us for food, fellowship, and a fun time as we grow our faith.
