    Prayer Partners for the Youth Mission Trips

    Have you heard that this year there are two groups of students going on Mission Trips? How exciting!  Let's show them we care for them on their Kingdom building adventures by helping out in a variety of ways. 

    1. Pray for them. Last year, every student and leader who went on the mission trip had a prayer partner. There are more kids going this year, so please consider adding a name or two to your short-term prayer list and contact Susan Hileman at if interested.

    2. Help put together goody bags. Drew has accumulated lots of snacks but he does need help getting it all organized into goody bags. He'll need help on July 9th (for Jr High) and July 23rd (for Sr High). Let Drew know if you can assist, his email is

    3. Write an encouraging note. While organizing the goody bags, include a note of encouragement for each student and leader. If you can't attend the goody bag stuffing events, you can drop off cards ahead of time in Drew's office.

    4. Wish them farewell. Wave goodby to the vans as they depart on July 14th and July 28th.

  • School Supply Drive

    As our students and educators prepare to head back to school, we can be a blessing to them by providing school supplies. For the next several weeks we will collect supplies in the bins by the main church entrance. Supplies needed include colored pencils, 24 pack crayons, pink erasers, composition notebooks, headphones, pencils, glue sticks, folders, three ring binders, pencil boxes, highlighters. Teachers also appreciate tissues and paper-towels. Thank you for your support of our local schools and students.
