Sunday, July 29 / Right After The Service

Who doesn’t love a good potluck? It has been a while, but we’re bringing it back. On Sunday, July 29 after the service, stick around and share the table!

Bring a dish or two to share. Keep in mind that we don’t have the space to keep foods hot or cold, so think picnic and bring something that can be enjoyed at room temp. You’ll drop your dish off in the Coffee Room before before the service starts and we’ll have everything lined up and ready to go when the dinner bell rings at 11:30am!

IMPORTANT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT!! We will NOT be serving coffee or tea as usual before the service, so plan accordingly and go through your favorite drive-thru or pour an extra large mug full at home.

Exciting things are happening in Kids Warehouse. Beginning August 5 we will be back in action for the school year with a few adjustments:
  • Elementary students will move up into their 2018-2019 school age classroom…so rising Kindergarten students will move upstairs, and everyone else moves up to their next grade level  classroom!
  • New Missional and Unit leaders will begin leading in KW after the summer break.  Make sure to pop into your child’s classroom to meet them!
  • And…Kids Warehouse will once again be leading Worship through music in age appropriate large groups in KW. So parents of kids preschool age to elementary, that means check your kids in to KW, and drop them off directly in their classrooms.
