We will be having an all church pot luck on November 11th to commemorate your amazing pledge to “Say Yes” to the ministry of this church. With your gifts we are able to help more people through every aspect of life. In 2019 we are looking forward to having more children in Thrive, utilizing new and exciting ways of connecting with the congregation and beyond, and having a brand new Fourth Street to welcome everybody in! So of course your gifts deserve celebrating! Stew and Carol Swanson are providing Sloppy Joes and we invite you to bring a side, salad, or desert! The fun will take place from 10am - 1pm on Sunday, November 11.

One of the staple ministries of this church is several missioners making the trip to Guatemala to provide much needed medical assistance to the people there. As this “Guatemala Adult Mission Experience” draws closer, we hope we can ask your assistance in making this mission trip possible. Not without you getting something in return, of course! The time for the annual Guatemala Fundraiser Brunch is here! (YUM!) The brunch is free-will donation, and all proceeds will go to helping prorate the cost of our missioners going on this trip.
