Camp Tekoa Registration NOW
Our kids will be going to camp the week of July 21st. Unfortunately, the mini camps have already filled up. The kids have the option of going to overnight camp (ages 8-11) July 21-27 or to day camp July 22-26. We ask that each family pay half of the cost of camp and the church and fundraisers will pay the remaining half. Overnight camp costs a total of $770. Day camp costs $415 for ages 9-11 and $355 for ages 6-8. We don't want cost to prohibit your child from participating so please reach out to Pastor Erin to register or for more information ASAP.
There will be a Flea Market Fundraiser for Camp Tekoa April 20-21. As you do your spring cleaning, please keep us in mind and put your items aside until we can collect them at the church.

Please bring your donations to the church. You may also contribute financially to the backpack ministry.
Adult Bible Study about Sabbath meets on Wednesdays
Many of us would say that we live by and believe in the ten commandments and yet we have a fast-paced, always on, always available 24/7 lifestyle. For four weeks Pastor Erin will lead a study using the book "24/6: a prescription for a healthier, happier, life" by Matthew Sleeth. Copies of the book are available in the church office. Join us from 6-7 in the library on Wednesdays. We will finish the study on February 21st.
Assisted Listening Devices for Worship
We don't want anyone to miss out on the fullness of worship due to hearing. We offer two options to those who need a little extra help hearing worship. The first is an earpiece that you can wear, the second is a Neckloop Telecoil Coupler. The neckloop device works with some hearing aids to amplify and convert the sound from the church's sound system into your hearing aid. These options are available in the narthex.
Children's Ministry Fundraiser Lunch, February 25th
Join us for food and fellowship next Sunday at noon as we come together to show support for our Children's Ministry. We will have soup, sandwiches, and desert. Take-outs will be available. All donations will help support the children's ministry.
Children's Sunday School Coming Soon
We are so excited to share that we will soon have Sunday School for our pre-k through 5th grade children! Starr Lankford is heading up this effort to provide another opportunity for our kids to experience the love of God and to hear the stories of our faith. Sunday School will be from 10:00-10:45 in the children's room the first floor of the education building. We will let you know has soon as we have a starting date.
