Dear Church Family

Our kids had a great time with the Lord and with each other at Jenness Park. Again, thank you for helping send each kid and counselor to camp. Thank you, counselors for taking time off work and your regular duties to support our kids. One counselor told me "this was a highlight of the year for me". What a great thing to say. When you think of little sleep, dirt, fishing, campfires, and all of that, it takes a certain dedication to come away looking forward to next year. Thank you, church, for loving our kids!

As we approach July 4, commit with me to pray daily for our country. Whether you voted for Trump or Newsome--no matter who you voted for--believe that our God will work through these people for His purpose. The Bible says it is God who places people in these positions. Pray for them, even thanking God for what He is going to do through them. For some this is a huge step of faith! Let's step out.

Our Mexico mission trip starts Monday. Please be in prayer for Jim and Julie Prestwood and Mike Halleck as they follow the Lord and minister in La Mision, Mexico. Our Youth will leave for Oregon on July 15 for a mission trip. Pray that they can make a difference for Christ!

Lastly, please be at church for our Summer Roundup on July 28. During this service, we will honor the Lord for all that has transpired over the summer. We will hear about camps, mission trips, and we will baptize those who have asked Jesus into their lives. It will be a great day of celebration!

See you Sunday!

Dear Church Family

What a summer it has already been and we are only halfway through!! VBS, Youth Camp, and Children's Camp were fantastic! Thank you for your prayers and support for the kids as they are growing in Christ.

I am very excited for the rest of the summer and all the LORD has in store for us. Perhaps even more than that I am excited for August 4 when we will be beginning our next round of Bible Study Classes!

Sunday Bible Study Course Offerings:

Along with some of our ongoing Bible Study classes there will be some additional courses which will include:

  • Old Testament 1 (Survey of the first half of the Old Testament)
  • Church History
  • Christianity Explained + Intentional Neighboring
  • Explore the Bible 2 - Timothy & Titus.
  • These courses will help us mature as disciples and equip us for ministry work. We are going to do our best to limit the class sizes to about 10 people. So, if you are unable to get your first choice class during the first session, then you can get on the waiting list, and take it during session 2 or 3! We will be advertising the courses during July. Then we will be ready to go when August 4 comes around! Sign Ups will begin July 14.

Take the opportunity for growth in the Lord!
