Men's Prayer Breakfast will be starting again on September 10 at 8 am, and then will be the first Saturday of the month beginning in October. Join us for a hot breakfast, brief devotional, and time of prayer! A sign-up sheet will be provided in the foyer. Contact Doug Roorda with any questions.
Save the Date! Our church is hosting a block party on September 10, from 4-7 pm. It’s not only a fun event for the members of our congregation, but also our community. We have a sign-up sheet hanging in the foyer listing where we need volunteers the day of! It will take a lot of help, so please take a look and sign up where you can!
Book Study – A new book study is starting up this fall! The book is called Trusting God by Jerry Bridges. The study will meet every other Wednesday night, opposite the Prayer Meeting, and will be held at the church at 7:00. As of now, there is no child care planned. However, if one or two people would like to volunteer to watch kids, that would be great. The first meeting will be on September 14. If you would like a book, please let Pastor Aaron know by September 4. The cost will be about $13.00.
