  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. Men of Hope – Lightning Strike

    The men of Hope Chapel are meeting on the morning of July 19th from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Living Room (sanctuary). This will be a great opportunity to seek God together. And, if the daily grind has interfered with your time with God, this will be a good time to focus on Him and reconnect.

    Breakfast tacos and lunch will be served in the Family Room.
