Graduation Sunday – June 3rd

The Hospitality Team is planning a taco party in honor of our graduates. Sign up in the foyer to help provide a variety of fruits and deserts for this meal. The team is also looking for a few people to help serve our taco bar. If you can help, please see any member of the team. Are you completing any type of schooling during the 2018-19 school year? Please contact Marilynn Kristofits by Tuesday so we can celebrate your accomplishments.

Military Pictures Requested

In observance of Memorial Day, we want to honor our loved ones who have once served and are no longer with us. Please submit pictures to the church office by May 22nd.


The biennial conference of the EFCA will be held June 18-20 at Compass Church in Naperville, Illinois. Pastor Matt & Heather and Curtis & Stephanie Quick will be representing us this year at EFCA One. Please pray for the delegates from across the USA as they meet for worship, training, networking, teaching, and decision-making. At the business session, the conference will be voting on a potential wording change to the EFCA Statement of Faith. More information about this amendment is available on the small table in the foyer including a paper by Pastor Matt on his support of the motion. See Pastor Matt if you have any questions.

Office Hours

Office hours this week will be Monday – Thursday 9:00 – 3:00 this week. Please have all information for the bulletin to Marilynn by 11:00am on Thursday. The office will be closed Friday – Monday in observance of Memorial Day.

 Sound and Video Help Needed

We are currently seeking a few people willing to be trained in either the sound system or video projection crews. This is an easy way to serve in ministry without missing any parts of our services. See John Kristofits with questions.

Our Daily Bread

The latest edition of Our Daily Bread for June, July, and August is now available near the Community Bulletin Board in the foyer.

Special Mother’s Day Offering for Salvation Army Service Unit

Today is the last day to give a special gift to our Salvation Army Service Unit so they can continue to help families within our community who are suffering with a financial crisis. Last year our Salvation Army Service unit helped 20 members of our community through a difficult time. Consider giving a compassionate gift today so that this ministry can continue to bless people in their time of need.

Our adult and youth Sunday School classes will finish their study in the Gospel of Mark using the Explore the Bible series next week. Join us next week for Session 13: Lives. We will begin a new study using the Explore the Bible series in two weeks. Pick up your free copy of 1,2 Timothy; Titus today.
