Come Celebrate – October 29th

Join us as we celebrate 500 years of the reformation that helped turn God’s people back to His Word and the Gospel of salvation by faith alone.  We will be meeting at the Upper Campus of our School on Aero Lane at 1:00pm on October 29 for a good, old fashioned October Fest style party.  We will be serving Bratwurst and Beer, as well as inviting you all to bring German style potluck dishes.  There will be music, games and activities for adults and children, and we will recognize the service we accomplished in the community during 500 For 500.  See you all there!

Join us in “The Story” – November 7th

We are embarking on a journey of reading through God’s Word in the Book “The Story” together.  “The Story” is a version of the NIV Bible arranged so that it can read straight through as a chronological narrative.  It starts November 7th and will be held every Tuesday from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. By doing this we will be affirming the importance of God’s Word and growing in faith and knowledge together.
