Heartland Healthcare Service:

On September 25th, at 4 PM, we will be leading a service at Heartland Healthcare in Whitehall. Please contact Karen Packard if you are willing and able to be a part of this ministry.


Please consider helping with AWANA this year! There are many spots to fill: Game time helpers, Helpers with Handbook Time (“Listeners”), Nursery Workers, Cubbies assistants, and people to help on “Special Nights” a few times a year. This is a very rewarding ministry to be a part of! We will be having a “dress rehearsal” on Wednesday, Sep 14th, at 6:00 PM for all volunteers. Please talk to Shannon or Gina Sharpe if you have any questions or are on the fence about helping. We’ll be happy to give you a “push”!
