New Service Times! TWO Service format on Sunday mornings. The new service times are 9:30am and 11am. Lifegroups will meet at 9:30 and 11am. We will continue to have in-person and online services. Masks are optional.
Lord’s Supper: Today we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper during both morning services.
1st Wednesday Prayer Night: Join us August 4, at 6:30pm in the Worship Center for an evening of prayer.
Israel Less Strenuous Tour: Register to attend the Israel trip, Nov 28-Dec 9, 2021 that is designed to be “less strenuous.” The vision is to invest in our spiritual mothers and fathers and other pilgrims who have always wanted to go but did not want the difficult hikes. Enjoy the same teaching, most of the same sites, and the same rich experience with God. You will study the Biblical Text in context, and it will change you.

Joining the KidMin Team! KidMin (Ministry to Kids and Families) offers a vibrant Sunday morning program for Birth-5th grade Kids. In order to function successfully, grow and thrive, we MUST have additional Team Members!! Here is a look at our plans for the upcoming year, beginning Aug 15.

Birth – Older Toddlers Classes will be offered @ 9:30am & 11am – in Young Preschool, Section A.
Older Preschool, 2 years (by 9/1/21) through 4 years (or 5, but not entering Kindergarten) will be in H building. We MUST expand to A & B classes per age group at 9:30am & 11am.

KidMin Staff will prepare Resources that are utilized in the Classroom.
KidMin Leaders will:
Prepare their hearts and study the lesson to lead well;
Build friendships with the children you lead;
Connect with parents/grandparents as you encourage them to carry on the teaching of the day at home (we provide resources).
FOR ELEMENTARY KIDS: (Kindergarten – 5th Grades):
“252 Kids” (Large Group/Small Group format) is offered at 9:30am & 11am.
Kids may attend 1 hour of 252 and the opposite hour, attend worship with their families.
We are providing opportunities for parents to model worship – guide their child how to use their bibles – and help set up families for fruitful Faith Talks and God Moments at home.
Expectation for Elementary Leaders: KidMin Staff will prepare Resources that are utilized during Small Groups. The lesson will guide you to reinforce and apply the Bible teaching presented in Large Group – and build relationships with the kids.
KidMin Leaders will:
Prepare their hearts and study the lesson to apply during small group. All elements of 252 Kids point to the main teaching of the day.
Build friendships with the children you lead (know their names/interests, etc.) and connect with their families
We will move Kindergarten-3rd Grade small groups to classrooms after Large Group – however, ALL LEADERS must be present for the entire Large group session (ahead of kids arrival). You have a responsibility to – greet your children, share in worship, guide kids to participate and listen respectfully to Leaders on stage.
FOR KIDS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS:
Champion’s Club is offered @ 9:30 and 11. We have 2 specialized classrooms to provide a safe and nurturing environment so that kids can learn about God’s love for them in their own unique way. Some children may be mainstreamed in “252 Kids” with a Buddy to partner with them. It’s imperative that we gain additional team members to meet the growing needs of this group. Training is available.
Please consider partnering with us to provide awesome classes for kids – to build relationships and grow in the knowledge of God’s love and perfect plan for their lives.
