The sponsorship program can be another way for businesses or individuals to participate in this ministry and benefit young athletes who may be unable to financially participate in the program. Sponsorships will include your name or business on a banner that will be placed in the gym. These banners are great encouragements for parents, and are a visual way to show others in our community that you or your business supports these kids. Sponsorships range from $50 to $200.

Who Do You Think you Are?
How do you see yourself? A masterpiece or a mess? Survivor or struggler? Advocate or critic? It’s an important question that many of us probably get wrong, or at least under state. Getting the right perspective on how God sees you might give you a new view of yourself.
Join us in September for this new series and let’s grab hold of who God says we are.
Join us on Sunday, August 18th for a time of great worship, fellowship, fun and food. All activities will be held at Phillips Park starting at 10am.
Everyone is encouraged to bring a camp chair, and this is a traditional potluck so bring a main dish and a side that is big enough for your family. The church will provide water, cups, plates, and eating utensils.
Questions, please contact the church office.
Like a rumble strip along a highway, God has placed things along our path for our protection.
This three-part series reveals the protective rumble strips God has put along our path to alert us to danger, giving us practical steps to ensure we don’t ignore the warnings meant to keep us safe.
Join us for a new Ladies Bible Study each Wednesday beginning May 1 from 1:30-3:30pm.

What is Love and Respect?
We believe love best motivates a woman and respect most powerfully motivates a man. Research reveals that during marital conflict a husband most often reacts unlovingly when feeling disrespected, and a wife reacts disrespectfully when feeling unloved. We asked 7,000 people the question, “When you are in a conflict with your spouse or significant other, do you feel unloved or disrespected?” 83% of the men said “disrespected” and 72% of the women said “unloved.” Though we all need love and respect equally, the felt need differs during conflict, and this difference is as different as pink is from blue!
Join us for this 10-week study on Wednesday nights starting June 5th from 6-7:30pm. It will be a great time together in study, discussion and fellowship. You haven’t been married too little or too long to benefit from this material. Childcare is provided.
Cost is only $10 for a workbook, but we ask that you sign up in the church office by phone or sign up below by May 19th to make sure that we have enough resources.

God is searching for you-and won’t give up until you’ve been found.
That’s the central message at the heart of this four-week sermon series. Just like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, we sometimes run away from God. We hide behind our excuses and our sins. We create distance in that relationship.
Yet God doesn’t give up. God passionately pursues us, seeking a restored and whole relationship with us.
Join us each Sunday, starting April 28th, for another aspect of God’s pursuit of you and me.
