This Sunday is part of a special weekend in our nation, as we will on Monday remember those that lost their lives in service of our country. During Sunday’s service we will have a couple of moments of tribute for Memorial Day, as we remember those heroes. Sunday is also “Ascension Sunday” on the Christian calendar, which is the Sunday that we as a church celebrate Christ’s ascension to the right hand of the Father. The ascension takes place on the Thursday before this Sunday, which is exactly forty days after Easter Sunday, and is customary to celebrate it on the Sunday after “Ascension Day”. The message will highlight the relevance of Christ’s ascension for our lives, while the service itself will support the duel themes of Memorial Day and the Ascension. It should be a wonderful time of worship!
This Sunday we will not have a 5pm Service, as we prepare to shift into a summer schedule for that service. We will maintain our regular 8:30 and 10:30 services weekly over the summer, but our 5:00 Service will meet only on the second and fourth Sundays of each month AND we are mixing it up a little bit. Here is the schedule:
• June 11th – “Porch Worship”
• June 25th – “Dinner Worship”
• July 9th – “Picnic Worship”
• July 23rd – “Celebration Worship”
This will mark the end of our “Summer Family Experience” – see below
5:00pm - Fellowship Hall - During June-July: will meet twice/month - read below
We are excited to be the host site for these summer camps, as we partner with Senseabilities, LLC to offer support to special needs families in our community!

May is always nice to celebrate end of the school year festivities (gatherings, graduations, etc), and then look ahead to the different pace of summer. I say “different” because I do not think of summer as a slower pace necessarily, just a different than the rest of the year. I look to take advantage of summer by doing things differently, and this summer I look forward to engaging in some unique opportunities as a church such as…

This summer we are going to try something different, and combine our VBS and Revival into one action packed experience. It is going to be like a VBS, revival, family reunion and homecoming all wound up in four days! We are calling it a “Summer Family Experience”, and the format will include a FREE meal, a short program for all ages, and then separate experiences for kids (VBS-style) and adults (Revival Worship-style). Mark your calendars, and plan to be a part of the fun!
For part of the summer, I am going to be offering a short-term book club (June 13th – July 11th) that will meet on Tuesdays from 11:30am – 12:30pm, as a “brown bag” lunch gathering. Anyone is welcome to join us in the Issues & Answers room, bring your own lunch, and come be a part of a discussion around the book Surprise the World by Michael Frost. The topics of Frost’s book will be the basis for our summer sermon series, and it will be great to explore these more in depth. You may order your own book online or you can write a check for $7 and note “summer book group” on the memo line by June 4th, and we’ll order one for you. Books will be available on Sunday, June 11th for pickup.
Beginning Sunday April 23d, we are studying "God Loves You: He always has, He always will" by Dr. David Jeremiah. Love is one of the most written-about subjects in all of human history. The Bible offers one truth about love not found anywhere else. It is not a definition, but a way to measure love--a way to compare it to something permanent and perfect. This study will focus on 10 dimensions of love as manifested by the God who is love. Join us!
Originally named “Issues & Answers”, we have lively discussions about the Old and New Testaments. Join us as we study, "Half Truths" by Pastor Adam Hamilton - a 5-week DVD series. We are located on the second classroom on the left when you enter the Church’s Administrative Wing.
What is God Like? For A. W. Tozer, there is no question more important. In fact, Tozer's desire to know God and His fullness consumed his entire life and ministry. Originally preached as sermons at Southside Alliance Church in Chicago, this first volume of The Attributes of God examines ten attributes of God. Steeped in Scripture and filled with the Spirit, Tozer preached with striking clarity and power. The sense of his sermons comes through on every page, bringing the Word of God to bear upon you
The Pilgrim Class continues the Wondering through the Bible. This is an in depth study done with humor and light refreshments. We have breakfast every 5th Sunday. Everyone is welcome and there is no age requirement. We meet down the hall from Fellowship Hall.
In this class we are real, we make mistakes, we say I'm sorry, we give second chances, we have fun, we give hugs, we forgive, we do really loud really well, we are patient, we love. We use various series of short-term books and videos that are grounded in scripture to help us grow as Christian disciples. The Seekers are led by Woody Davis. All are welcome to visit any time, we’d love to have you! Our class motto is “Love Wins!” and all God’s children said amen. GRACE HAPPENS HERE! We are located on the last classroom before the Fellowship Hall
We meet in the second room on the right down the hall from the office entrance. Don Schall teaches the class described as an excellent lesson "mini sermon" each week. We study the Adult Bible Studies, an official resource for The United Methodist Church approved by the General Board of Discipleship and published by Cokesbury. Come join us each Sunday ... You will be glad you did.

We reject the lie that students should be immature and irresponsible, resulting in them being irrelevant to others; but rather, we challenge our students to live out the Gospel in all aspects of life.
We love to meet you during one of our Sunday Services.
