Graduation Sunday—June 9.     If you have a child graduating from Pre-K, Kindergarten, 5th, 8th, 12th grades, or college & trade school, we would like to recognize them during our June 9, 11:00am service and in the bulletin.  Please let Jen know your child’s name, grade completed, school, and if attending college in the fall, the name of the college.  
 
Youth Group at Cedar Point —June 11.     If your youth is interested in going, contact Jen to get them signed-up.  We already have 14 youth signed up, so it will be a fun time for all.  Tickets are $40. The  group will leave at 7:30am and return at 10:00pm.​

Intergenerational Zoo Trip - June 20.     Youth, with Smock Ministries, will go to the zoo as part of an intergenerational trip.  We will meet in the Youth Lounge at 11:15am for lunch and leave for the zoo at 12:30pm, returning at 3:30pm.  This is a free event, the first of many intergenerational events we hope to have.

T.O.W.N

(Together On Wednesday Nights) is a midweek program that meets on Wednesday nights from September through April from 5:30pm to 7:00pm. TOWN is a place where church is fun and everyone matters. It offers a weekly opportunity for youth and adults to get to know the church staff and believers from a wide variety of ages. TOWN teaches that belief in Jesus Christ extends beyond Sunday morning, that the Christian life can be filled with joy and fun, and that everyone in the church is part of a believer's family. Dinner is $5 a person, $20 maximum per family.
