August 24

Our second annual First Fest is scheduled for August 24 in our Courtyard. 

  This wonderful festival will include free food, games for kids, sno cones, cotton candy, popcorn and, of course, music!  This year we have Brandon Michael Ellis as our musical headliner.  He is a rising star in Christian

music and was highly recommended by last years performers, Cloverton.  Brandon has just released his first CD, The Journey.  

 

 

Summer Sermon Series

All in the Family 

What are your favorite family stories?

What are the stories you tell over and over again at family reunions?

What are the stories you share with every new member of your family? 

This summer we will spend some time exploring our biblical family stories, those stories of our ancestors in the faith in Genesis.  Like most family stories, our biblical family stories are filled with a mix

of characters.  Some comic, some tragic, some faithful, some not-so-perfect.  And

like most family stories, our biblical stories shape us and help us discover who we are in our relationship with God.  So join us on the Genesis front porch this summer to hear our family stories.
