A Word From Mike…

An update from General Assembly, Indianapolis, IN-

Last night we had a historic event at the General Assembly. We elected the first mainline church ethnically diverse and female primary leader in Rev. Terri Hord Owens.  I will be addressing this more in the future, but I did want to share how impressed I have been with the way she has excepted the call into this leadership position. I am confident not only in her call, but in her God-given abilities to serve in this position at this time.  I would ask each of you to pray for her by name in the week ahead.  Please pray for her leadership, her personal faith and for her family.  She is now a part of our story and our journey.

Thanks for sharing the journey,

Dinner will be served at 6 p.m.and the lesson will start at 6:30. If possible, please try to arrive on time. We do many activities on Wednesday nights, and I want to make sure that the students get the full experience before the 8:00 p.m. pick up time.

On Sunday Evening July 16th , We will not be having a Sunday night service since we will be in Kansas City on the mission trip.

Mission Trip:

On Sunday morning, July 16th, we will all attend the 8:30 a.m. service of church. Then, we will pack up the bus and our lunches during Sunday school time. Afterwards, we will be commissioned out of the second
service to head out for Kansas City.

 Summer is a great time to get involved in our group!

If you know anyone who might be interested in joining us,
please give me a call! I would love to reach out to them!
