Church Family News

Father’s Day Gifts
If you’re a dad, we’re celebrating you today! We have a gift for all men as you exit the sanctuary this morning.

Youth Game Night
There will be a game night at the church this Friday night, from 6-10pm. We will order pizza and have video games, board games, and dessert. All kids in grades 7-12 are invited!

FBW Worship Jam Session for Kids
Are you interested in joining the worship team for Family Bible Week? There will be a special practice time after church on February 9th to get ready for FBW and learn the new song, “Lift High the Name of Jesus!” Parents, plan to stay an extra 30 minutes after church while your child rehearses with the team.

Good News Cruise 2017
Good News Cruise 2017 is just around the corner and we are looking for a bunch of people willing to work just a few hours helping us spread the GOOD NEWS! We do that so many ways – You can help by serving food or parking cars, or simply serving as a roaming greeter that day. Our cruise is all about people, not just their cars! We want to be sure to focus on the guests to our church campus and begin building relationships with as many of them as possible. Sign-up sheets are in the foyer for the above needs. Commit today to be a part of reaching people in our community for Christ.

Calling All Creative People
Alisa Liptak is looking for a few items to help with decorations for FBW. We are looking for some Christmas trees (marked with whom to return them to) as well as taxidermy that is “stand alone” (no holes in the walls!). She is also looking for a few talented individuals to help with set design. If you are interested in helping out with this need, sign up in the foyer or see Alisa to be involved.

Harvest Prayer Time
Our Harvest Prayer Time group meets each month to pray for the lost in our community and the outreach events scheduled for our church and community. The next meeting is this Saturday, June 24th, at 7:00am here at the church. See Wally Kephart if you have questions.

Family Bible Week Sign-ups & Teachers Meeting
We are still looking for a few people to be ready for our FBW. Stop by the bulletin board in the foyer and sign up today. The next teachers’ meeting will be held immediately after church on June 25th. Questions? See Alisa Liptak.

EFCA Today: The online magazine
The Evangelical Free Church of America has published the summer edition of their online magazine entitled “Building on a Firm Foundations: Taking Our Past Into Our Future.” There are copies in the foyer as well as at if you’d like to read it. Inside, you’ll find nine articles from EFCA churches on topics including youth culture, what community looks like, and a letter from the president.

Gospel Project Sunday School Classes
Our Adult Sunday School classes will continue Volume 8: Stories and Signs next week. Pick up your free copy of The Gospel Project in the foyer today and join us for Lesson 4: The Father of Two Lost Sons.

Recycle Your Prescription Bottles
The Missions Ministry Team is collecting old prescription bottles and will send them to PNG to help with their medical mission work. To participate in this program, simply remove the labels from your prescription bottles, wash them, and bring them to church with you. A basket is located on the book sale table to collect these. See Judy Carlson if you would like to help get the bottles ready for shipment.

Hide The Word
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. – Colossians 4:2
