Take A Closer Look

 

Spark Kids: Through the month of September we will continue with our Spark Workshops. Beginning October 9th we will launch Spark Kids! For Spark Kids, children from grade K-5th will begin service as usual with their families. Then they will be invited to Spark Kids for their time of engaging in God's Word at an age appropriate level while and youth learn God's Word. Children in K-2nd grades will head to the Power Station. Children ages 3rd-5th grade will head to the Lighthouse. They will return to the service with their families to end worship together. Children ages 0-4 will have Sparklers available for the entire service, all Sundays. If you have questions, please contact Sarah Hammersborg.

All Family Worship: October 2nd will launch our All Family Worship for all people, all ages, all growing in God's Word together! Together we will be learning importance of the Word. Nursery care for ages 0-4 will be available during the service. Following worship will be a barbeque lunch. You won't want to miss out on a great Sunday or worshiping together and a time to gather with our community!


Thunder 2016: So you want to be a pirate, eh? Arrr mateys – it’s a pirate’s life for you at the middle school Thunder Retreat! Sail on over to Cascades Camp on October 21-23, 2016. Don’t be a landlubber, instead, test out your sea legs and join hundreds of other students for a jolly good weekend of adventures! It will be all hands on deck during epic activities: go all out in the big games, walk the plank at the zip lines, have a blimey good time as you make crafts, tiptoe through the timbers on a trail ride, and much more! For early registration ($90) turn your registration in no later than Wednesday October 5th. Anything received after October 5th will be $110.  See Julie McBee for more information.
