The Big 3

#1) Starting Next Week:  9 Marks Sunday School Class
Beginning in January, Sunday School classes will study and discuss the book “9 Marks of a Healthy Church”. Men’s groups, Women’s Bible Study, and many in the community will also focus on this book to start 2020. There will also be Sunday evening classes for our Sunday School teachers. This is a great way for us to grow deeper in our understanding of God’s design for the church. One copy of the book has been made available to each family in the church. Please grab your copy from the table in the coffee area. There you will also find a sign-up sheet for anyone who would like more than one for their family.

Summer Notes: We will be hosting our own VBS this summer. The dates are July 12-17, 2020. Mark your calendars and begin inviting other friends. More information will be coming soon. Also, this summer we would love to send as many students as possible to Hidden Acres, a fantastic Christian Camp in Dayton, Iowa. There are camps for many   different age groups. The church is providing a $175 voucher for any student who wants to attend. These vouchers will be available from the church office after the New Year. Visit for more information and to register your children.
