Roar! Vacation Bible School 2019
By Pastor Scott Roar! Life is Wild, God is Good – Vacation Bible School was a great success, with over 30 children attending and over 20 adult leaders! On Sunday, 10 of the children attended a VBS Worship Celebration during our first Outdoor Worship Service of the year, where they sang two of their songs, read scriptures, and invited the congregation to experience a taste of the fun and learning they had experienced all week. God is really really good!

Summer Cleanout-

There are several tables in the Fellowship Hall full of items that have been removed from storage and will be donated to charity. Three things you can do: 1. Look for items that belong to you, and take them home. 2. Put a post-it note on items you think we should keep for church ministry use. 3. Put a post-it note on items that you would like to take home and put to use. On Monday, July 15th items without post-it notes will be donated. Thank you!
