On Sunday September 3rd (Labor Day weekend), we will all join together for one service at 10:30 am! After the service, we invite you to stay for a BBQ! The church will provide the meat, buns, condiments, and water. We'd love for you to bring a side dish to share -- chips, fruit, veggies, dessert, or whatever else you love to eat with your burgers!
With summer activities over, we'd love to have you join us for a Friday evening of fun and games at the church! We're hoping for nice fall weather so we can enjoy some outdoor entertainment -- a corn hole tournament, tug-o-war, the obstacle course, the new playground set, and s'mores! And board games or card games can be played inside or outside as well! This is just a great opportunity to get to know other people from church better!
We'll have all the fixings for s'mores, but if you'd like to bring other snack food to share (chips/dip, fruit, veggies, desserts), you're welcome to add that to the party! And as always, your friends are welcome to join us! Hope to see you there!
