There’s still time! If you’re thinking about being a volunteer on the Summer Slam VBS team this year, let Pastor Amos or Marie know and mark your calendar for a leaders meeting on Sunday, August 13 after the service in Auditorium A/B. Lunch will be provided.

Summer Slam Snacks! Once again, we’re asking for your help to fill up the snack coffers for the week of Summer Slam VBS. See the list on the table in the foyer and sign up to donate an item.
We are looking for volunteers to join our tech crew! If you’d be willing to sit in the sound booth once a month and run the computer (song, announcement, and sermon slides) please let the church office know.


Thank you to the tireless group of volunteers who regularly give of their time to take care of our lawn and flower beds. Your work does not go unnoticed. Thanks for keeping our outdoor space tidy and attractive!
