Help Wanted: Outdoor Services Return This Weekend, Volunteers Needed

With the great forecast this weekend, we wanted to take some pressure off the contractors and give them some additional freedom to accomplish their task in the worship center, we'll be outside again this weekend! We will be on our normal schedule: 9:00 am and 10:45 am. Those of you coming to the earlier service may want to bring a light jacket, as it may still be cool in the shade at that time. 

To accomplish this, we need your help starting at 7:30 am! We'll need some able-bodied volunteers to help us get the chairs and canopies in position for services and then help put them away following the second service.

Also, please note there will be no Adult Sunday School as a result of the construction and outdoor service. 

See you Sunday!

SHAPE is back again. Save the Date!


Sunday, June 5th @ 1:30pm – 4:30pm

We are perfectly made for one reason—to give pleasure to God. We can do that through serving. Think of your body and the different parts: Your arms, your mouth, your nose. Each of these parts needs to do its job for your whole body to function the way it is supposed to. It is the same with the body of Christ. If any one of us fails to do the “good works” that God has prepared for us, the whole Body suffers. Find out how you can serve. Call the office for more information: 909-866-3951
