New Sunday worship series in February, "Lessons in Love"

We are excited to announce a new Sunday series coming in February called "Lessons in Love." Pastor Mark will share God-centered insight as to having better relationships, loving better and making better choices with the people we love.

The first message is playing off the movie, "Ground Hogs Day," and is about how to not have the same date over and over again.  For singles and those in a relationship!

Awesome!  We hope to partner and encourage you along the process and contribute to a successful implementation.

Our ministry leaders are the first line of support, if there is one related to your idea.  (Click here for a list of ministry leaders.)  

Upon honing your idea with the ministry leader, you are ready to submit our online form, "Event, Initiative, or Activity" (click here). This form, when submitted, informs the Leadership Team along with notifying the admin asst that it is time to think about implementation,  communication and marketing.  

Please submit this form at least two weeks prior to implementing an event/initiative/activity.  (Earlier is better.) You will be contacted if there are questions and Lynette (the admin asst) will work with you on a web presence, announcements, online RSVPs and registrations, FB posts, etc. to help make this successful.

Questions? Email Lynette, the church admin asst (click here).
