Special Called Business Meeting

This Sunday, June 6, 5:30pm.

Members were sent an email today (and those without email will receive in the mail this week)- a letter from the pastors explaining church staff structure changes. This will be discussed at our business meeting this Sunday.


Mandatory Crew Leader Training

This Wednesday, June 2, at 7:00pm in the chapel (immediately following Wednesday Night Bible Study).

Please make every effort to attend this meeting!


Church Work Day!

We also may be moving things around and getting ready inside for VBS if that is needed.
