  2. Baptisms and Annual Picnic

    Sunday, June 8th, we will have one service at 10:00 AM, followed by baptisms and a picnic! We’ll baptize the adults and children in a big water trough on our campus. Then we’ll picnic in the backyard (and the Family Room).

    Kids, bring your suits for the water slide! Adults, bring a side dish to share:

    A-H: Vegetable dish
    I-Q: Salad
    R-Z: Dessert

    Everyone please bring lawn chairs and sunscreen.

    Drop off your food items in the Family Room before the service with serving utensils.

  3. “Walmarting” Outreach Training Saturday Night

    If you are interested in going on our prayer-walking outreach called “Walmarting,” but would like to learn more about how prophecy and evangelism can work together, come to our Walmarting Training on Saturday, July 19th from 8:30-10:00 p.m. The training is led by Diane Wall, who is very experienced in hosting this training in an easy and accessible way. You’ll get to practice praying and encouraging others in a joyful and loving environment and hear encouraging stories!

    Currently, teams go out Saturday nights. In the future, teams may form at a different time during the week. Even if you could not typically go out on a Saturday, Matt still encourages you to come check out the training for your own personal edification and possible involvement in other settings.


    Email Matt Ryniker if you are thinking about coming. Let’s explore and practice what it means for Christians to hear from God in order to build others up.

  4. Reception for our Friends from Overseas

    Our friends are in town from overseas and we get to fête them with an appetizer and dessert reception! Come straight from work for appetizers or bring the family (after an early dinner) for desserts. Visit and catch up with what’s been happening in their lives before they head home.
