Mission: Hope: Week of July 29, 2019
Jul 30, 2019
 
There are more orphans in the world than a lot of people realize. Be prepared for this data to shock you. While the statistics I am going to share are numbers, keep in mind that each of those “numbers” represents a child—a child growing up in the world without parents.

Middle School: Week of July 29, 2019
Jul 30, 2019

This summer is going by so fast! I feel like I mention how fast the year is going a lot, but it really was a quick year. Nicole and I celebrated our first year of marriage anniversary on the 28th and we couldn't believe it's already been a year!
 
Middle School Ministry will be taking the month of August off for Sunday morning programming. There will still be a 9:00 am and 10:30 am Sunday morning church service, but we like to give our amazing Small Group Leaders some time off to recuperate, get some time away, and be ready to plug in full speed come September. So, we'll see everyone again in September!
 
August doesn't mean we stop doing fun events!
 
 
Make sure to check out Basics on Aug. 4th! Basics runs from 10:30 - 11:30am Sunday morning with Becci Terrill. She'll be leading a discussion on the Gospel and baptism for you 3rd - 12th graders. It's $5 per family to come, we'll see you there! Click HERE to register by noon on Thursday, August 1. 
 
 
The all church Picnic and Baptism will be starting at 3:00 until 6:30pm at Oakwood! There's a ton going on that afternoon, so bring the whole family and jump in on all the fun! Click HERE for all the info!
 
Thanks, all! See you very soon!
 
Middle School Director

Preschool & Elementary School: Week of July 29, 2019
Jul 30, 2019

Family Month starts this Sunday, August 4:

On these Sunday mornings, our 9am and 10:30 am services are designed in such a way to be even more intentionally family-focused. A special children's sermon is delivered, often with a take-home reminder for our kids. Crayons and our kids' bulletin are also available in the Worship Center for preschool and elementary children so they can connect with the sermon. Childcare for infants through 3 years old is at the 9am service only. 

Register for Basics by noon on Thursday, August 1:

This Waypoint will give parents the opportunity to clearly present the Gospel to their kids. In addition, we will discuss baptism and how it is an expression of the Gospel. Basics is offered bi-annually. We encourage families to participate in this Waypoint as part of the process of preparing for Baptism. Baptism is scheduled for Sunday, August 11.

This Waypoint is recommended for families with children in 3rd through 12th grade.  

The next Basics Waypoint class is being offered this Sunday, August 4, from 10:30-11:30am. To register for the August Basics class click HERE
