Interest Meeting         July 8 & 15, 12:00 p.m.   for
2020 Passion Play      and/or      Fall 2019 Holy Land Trip

How would you like to visit Oberammergau, Germany, in 2020 for the world famous “Passion Play” put on by the people of that town once per decade since 1635? Allan and Rachel Tarr will hold an informational meeting after the 11:00 service on July 8 to talk about this trip opportunity, which also includes visits to Bavarian towns in Germany and to Austria and Switzerland.

Allan and Rachel will also talk about an opportunity for making a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in the Fall of 2019 to walk where Jesus walked.


Promotion Sunday is August 12!

Following worship, all children and youth (not just those promoted!) are invited to a quick bite in the fellowship hall, to change, and then head to Fish Trap where we will take off for tubing to celebrate those promoted and the Back-to-School season!

STEPHEN MINISTRY

In 1 Thessalonians 5 Paul writes, ” Therefore encourage one another and build each other up… Encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone.” God has called us all to build up and encourage one another. For those who are experiencing a really difficult time, our Stephen Ministers can provide the special encouragement, care, and support they need until they are past the crisis.

For more information on becoming a Stephen Minister please contact Gwen Scarth,  at gwenyth.allen@gmail.com or at 706-258-8757 or John VanNamen at vannamenjohn@ gmail.com or at 219-670-3057.
