Congregational Meeting Sunday, June 11th
All church members are encouraged to attend the congregational meeting on Sunday, June 11th at 7pm. There will be two main agenda items. First, the congregation will vote to receive the candidates for membership being presented by the elders. The second vote is to accept or reject the elder board's recommended candidate for Youth Pastor, Tanner Mans. 

Summer Sunday School Starts Next Sunday:

Family Sunday School:
This is a class for all ages. We will walk through twelve questions in the “New City Catechism.” This summer's topics will focus on redemption and grace. Our time together also aims to help parents continue discipling their families in these truths throughout the rest of the week. Contact Pastor Dan with any questions. We are meeting downstairs in the youth room.
Adult Sunday School Class:
Daniel Block calls Deuteronomy “The Gospel According to Moses.” In many ways, Deuteronomy is not only the heart of the Old Testament but expresses the heart of God so well that it forms the foundation for everything else that follows in scripture. Join us as we explore why Moses was the prophet whom Jesus was like (Deut. 18:15). Pastor Terry will lead this class on Deuteronomy in the Fellowship Hall.

All Church Picnics

Church picnics take place at 6pm on the last Sunday of the month in the summer. They are held in place of our normal Sunday evening service. Tableware and beverages are provided, but everyone is asked to bring an entree to share, as well as a side based on your last name:    
  • Sunday, June 25th: Upper Tuthill park
  • Sunday, July 30th: McKennan park picnic shelter
  • Sunday, August 27th: Upper Tuthill park
