Sunday Potluck and Members Meeting

After church this Sunday, May 20, we will be hosting a potluck in the fellowship hall downstairs! Contribute by bringing an entree, a side, or a dessert. There will also be a silent pie auction with all of the proceeds to benefit our MOPS program. Come to church ready to worship, eat, and fellowship! Bible classes are at 9:30, church is at 10:30.

As we begin wrapping up our lunch, we will meet upstairs in the sanctuary for our quarterly business meeting. Under consideration for this meeting is the annual budget, arrangement of childcare rooms, and appointing a new person in charge of our children's ministries.

AWANA Talent Show This Evening

We have two Wednesdays left for AWANA until we break for the summer. Tonight is our talent show, and next week is awards night!

We are expecting some severe weather this evening, but all our events will still proceed as scheduled. The fellowship meal is at 5:00, and then AWANA begins at 6:00. Someone will be monitoring the weather to keep everyone safe. In the event of a tornado, the siren in our back parking lot will sound, and we'll take cover in the basement.
