So, friends please grab a Chick-fil-A meal and donate generously to get these 17 outstanding teens to the Youth Rally this summer.

The Ministry Minute
Please join us on holy Thursday (April 14th) immediately following 4:00pm worship to canvas the neighborhood just outside our doors. We will be handing out these lovely invitations (see photo above), personally asking our neighbors to join us for breakfast and worship on Easter Sunday. Pastor Redfield will help prepare us with a prayer and a script of sorts, to ensure we feel confident inviting. Our first goal is to canvas the apartments/duplexes east and southeast of our parking lot, but hope to encircle the church within manageable walking distance, depending on time (dusk) and how many of you come! Please let me know if we can expect you by texting me (Kelly Wendorff) at 920.948.0067
