Upcoming Dates for Fall

The yard sale will be held the second weekend of September.  Would you like to help?  Let us know by replying to this email!

We have tentatively scheduled a fall work day for October 6 (right before Homecoming!) to pretty up the landscaping and church grounds.

Homecoming will be on October 7 this year.

One more church lock-in in the books!


Thanks to Tracy, Ed, and Emily Strange, June Tate, Kimberley Barker, Sharon Jacobs, and Kevin Hensley for making this summer's gathering such a fun time!  Who knew Twister would be such a hit?
