The purpose of our church family ministry is to provide opportunities for our diverse church family to connect with one another and enjoy Christian fellowship in a safe, supportive environment. Church members and friends of all ages are encouraged to join the fun!
Take a break from cooking and enjoy an evening of inter-generational fun and fellowship every Wednesday of each month at 6:15, prior to Chancel Choir Practice, in our Church CAC. Come connect with your church family while having a savory and tasty meal!
Various Past Family Fellowship Night Activities have included:
The Church’s Annual Fall Festival is always a good time for families to come together. It’s held in Late October each year in the church’s CAC building. Children come in costume to play various carnival-style games, jump in bounce houses, collect candy treats, and partake in a hot dog supper. The Fall Festival is also open to the community and church members are encouraged to invite another outside of the church to attend.

The office reached out to the Church Giving Envelope Company which prints our yearly giving envelopes and wanted to share with you an updated status. Our envelopes are still in the queue on the production floor. Unfortunately, production is behind this year because of a machine repair and also due to a chain supply shortage of paper and labor. They are hopeful that the envelopes will be available by February and they thanked us for our understanding. There will be blank envelopes for you to use for giving, please see an usher or take one from the back of the pew.

With this new resource, we are taking steps to enhance that process. By now you should have received an email inviting you to RightNow Media. After you have set up your free account you will be able to search through the vast library of resources available. These range from topics such as Bible studies, devotionals, apologetic, marriage, parenting, and many many more. Please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity as much as you can.
