Current & Special Events
 
 NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION
Starting on Saturday September 8th Dr. Tim will be hosting a New Member Orientation in the Church Parlor across from his office at 10AM. Orientation will meet every Saturday through October 6th [PLEASE NOTE HOWEVER: Saturday September 29 will be a mission immersion experience with Rise Against Hunger – please be at the church by 8:30 to start packaging food].
 
The Look Out Challenge
 
The Strategic Planning Team will be experiencing the new Look Out Challenge beginning on September 10 from 6-7. The purpose of the Challenge is to learn about ourselves, where we fit into the Church structure with our particular giftings and how we can work together to grow our Church. This exciting new project will provide leaders who will start or continue small groups in the same challenge, spreading God's plan for growing our Church. Do you look inward and ask "What can the Church do for me?" Then this study will challenge you to change that question to "What can I do for My Church?" Be prepared to accept this amazing challenge!
