Categories: ,

Worship begins at 10am in the sanctuary. Welcome Sunday is the official start of the church program year.   This special Sunday is always filled with the excitement of renewing old friendships and making new ones, and the anticipation of another year of growing in faith together.

Blessing of the Backpacks
Each year, we ask our children to bring their backpacks to church on Welcome Sunday, so we can bless our children for the school year ahead. We also ask our church members to bring backpacks to donate to children who cannot afford them. This year, the donated backpacks will go to Community Giving Tree. They have already given out over 2100 backpacks this year alone! We will replenish their supply with our generous donations. Thank you for your support of this great local giving opportunity.

Welcome BBQ
The grill-masters are ready to grill burgers and dogs for a feast on the front lawn, weather permitting. Gluten free and vegetarian options are available. And Benson’s Ice Cream tops off the BBQ with some fabulous ice cream sundaes! To add to the festivities, a bounce house welcomes children of all ages! All are invited to join us after worship and Sunday school for this free event!

8th Annual Mum Sale
Tis the season to decorate with mums! Purchase your mums from our youth and they will even deliver them to your car! The proceeds all benefit the 2019 Youth Mission Trip, thanks to the generous donation of the mums from Paisley Farm and Greenhouse.

Sunday School Begins 
We are excited to try something new!  Using the new curriculum, The Whole People of God, children and youth of all ages will explore our Christian faith through song, stories and fun activities.  This is a great opportunity to invite a friend to join you!
