All Church Picnic this Sunday. We can’t wait to celebrate life together with you and your family at our Annual Fall Kick-off and Picnic this Sunday September 11th! Worship will be extra special as we honor our founding pastor, Rob Bromhead. The building will be bustling with lots of ministry opportunities for the Fall and… we will have great food, games and fun for all ages at our picnic following worship at 11:30am. The Deacons will be serving drinks, so please stop by and have a chat with your Deacon. They would love to see you! Register for the picnic here and let us know what food item you can bring to share. We also need volunteers to help with this fun event! If you can help, please sign up here. We’ll see you there!
