What’s Happening This Week

Memorial Day

What are the things that you are doing today that will be remembered forever?  What are the things you are doing today that really don’t matter?  Check out service this Thursday night or Sunday morning and learn from Nate, what is most important and how to live into things that last forever.

In the future, when your children ask you, “What do these stones mean?”, tell them that the flow of the Jordan was cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord.  When it crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off.  These stones are to be a memorial to the people of Israel forever– Joshua 4:6-7 (NIV)


Thursday@ 6:30 pm (Join us for dinner at 5:45 pm, see what’s for dinner below)
Sunday @ 8:30, 9:30, and 11:00 am

Clothing Collection

We’re collecting gently used clothes (infant-high school) now for the Back to School Blowout event happening 7/26-7/27. Last day to drop off donations will be Sunday, 6/2. It would be super helpful to our volunteers who are sorting the clothes, if you could separate them by gender and size. If you don’t have children’s clothing to donate, but would still like to participate, donations of new packages of socks and underwear or gift cards/cash to be used for that purpose are also needed. These clothes will be given to help struggling families in our community so the children can have nice clothes to wear for the new school year.

We will be collecting clothing in the trailer outside the church throughout the month of May. Contact Sarah if you have any questions.
