Garden Party Memories

Here is a collage of celebration from the Garden Party last Saturday evening. Not only was the place packed with friends and visitors having a great time, but we surpassed our goal of $3000 for Habitat for Humanity and raised over $5000 to help needy veterans. Thanks be to God!

Sign Up for VBS
VBS 2013

Time to sign up! VBS is just a few weeks a way and the momentum is building for an awesome week for kids from 3 to 103. The fun, faith, and friendships that you will treasure forever will unfold during weekday evenings June 29 to July 3. We'll begin with a variety of tasty meals starting at 6pm and then break into classes for both kids and adults, beginning at 7pm. The theme is "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands" and the adult classes will include subjects such as astronomy, international cooking, and swing dancing, as well as Rob Bell and Taize. Should be another awesome time together. We need to prepare for the food and classes so please sign up after the 8:15 and 10am services this Sunday!
