Who Does Not Want to Be Healthy or Grow Spiritually? This is one of the thought provoking questions that the book "The U-Turn Church" inspires us to ask. This book walks us through common roadblocks to growth into a hope filled future. Please come and join us in the church social hall on Sunday, October 14th at 6:30 p.m. for some fun, fellowship and worship to our great God! And yes, coffee and cake! Please join us as we study the "U-Turn Church". Everyone is encouraged (Including junior highs) and welcome. Child care will be provided.
You are invited to come and meet Pastor Peter VanderBeek - on Saturday, October 6th at 7:00 p.m. Join us for coffee and donuts at the church as we warmly welcome him into our community for the next several months.

Pastor Peter will be staying in our church parsonage for 3-4 days a week while he is serving in our congregation. We are looking for some furniture to make him more comfortable while he is here. We were able to get a list from Pastor Peter of things needed for the parsonage. Chair and couch with reading light to put next to chair. Microwave, desk with desk chair and a bed. If you could help with any of these items, please let council know.
