We look forward to your joining us for our weekly gatherings! We hope Wednesday Nights will provide a wide range of opportunities so that all generations can gather and grow as disciples. We kicked off our programming on September 7 with a Night of Introductions and a BBQ meal.

The catered meals are served in take-out boxes so that they are easier to carry to your table or class. The meals will cost $8 for adults and $4 for children. Reservations are required. Make your reservation online, on the sign up sheet at church, or by contacting the church office by noon on Monday.

An Opportunity to Serve: By helping serve the food and clean up after the meal, you will have the opportunity to serve and to build great relationships. We need people to serve the catered food into take-out boxes, to plate desserts, serve drinks, and to clean up after the meal. While working in the kitchen may sound like a chore, it is one of the best ways to get to know people - just ask Pastor Laura.



Areas of Support for Volunteers:
Help pick-up large items to be sold, sale day security, help pricing items, loaders on sale day, clean-up and set-up for the Wave.

Drop off dates will begin Monday, March 25 - Friday, March 29. There will be AM and PM times.

Please contact Lynn Livesay for more information.
