Church Life Update
Sunday, August 14 from 10:10 - 10:45AM in the Fellowship Hall

The whole congregation is invited to join together on Sunday, August 14, for a quick update on the life of our church. Come and hear from our staff as we take a glance back at the road we have traveled so far this year and a peek forward to the opportunities in our upcoming year of ministry. It will be an encouraging view of all that God has done and is still doing in our midst as we follow Him together. Join us!

We hope you gather with us this Sunday, August 7, for our adult elective as we hear from Harrys & Freda Goudas and the team that traveled with them to Athens, Greece this summer! They will be sharing highlights from their trip and hopes for church planting in Athens. We will meet in the Sanctuary at 10:10AM.

There are always opportunities to go and work. Check out this video from Mission to the World for more information:
