Wednesday Night Worship and Prayer Ministry…will take a break from July 4th – 25th. We will resume on Wednesday, August 1st. This break will provide an opportunity for rest for those currently participating and for re-engagement for new people to jump in as well. It will also allow the leaders to have the same opportunities to be refreshed and renewed with vigor when these activities resume. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Manor or the Board of Elders.

PAUL’S WORSHIP AND PICNIC at Brodie Park on Sunday, August 5th! Our combined Friendship Sunday Summer Worship service begins at Brodie Park at 10:00am.  Picnic and games follow!  What a super opportunity this is to invite neighbors and friends, especially those who do not have a church home yet. However, the most important person to attend is YOU, your family, your children and grandchildren. We are looking forward to this unique and special time of Christian fellowship!  Please let Cheryl Lowman know if you will be attending and whether you would like to bring a side dish or dessert to share!  Hamburgers, hot dogs, and beverages will be provided!   E-mail cheryl.cassady@yahoo.com. Let’s make some good old fashioned summer worship and picnic memories together!  Can’t wait to see you there!
