Newsletter and Bulletin

The deadline to have your announcement included in the weekly church e-mail newsletter or bulletin is Thursday at noon.

Baby Bottle Drive

Our Annual Baby Bottle Drive fundraiser for New Life Pregnancy Center will run from Mat 8 through June 19 (Mother's Day to Father's Day). This is just a friendly reminder to start saving your coins & bills. Questions? See Wade or Carol Davis

Open House

God has blessed us richly with our new building! A Church Open House is planned for Saturday, June 11, 1:00 - 4:00pm.  We will have the Lion’s Den praise band, grill brats or burgers, outdoor games, and stream a PowerPoint of the church.  Invite your friends, family and neighbors!

Carving Club

Our 'wood carving club' meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month at noon (at the church building).  Beginning and experienced wood carvers are welcome and there is even some equipment and projects for beginners.  If you have questions or need more information -- talk with Wade Davis, Steve Detmer, or Dave Dewar.

Craft Group

Calling all crafters:
The craft group “Faith Works” will meet on the   second and fourth Wednesdays   from 9 am to approximately noon to create crafts for charity. Everyone is welcome.  If  you’re a sewist, bring your machine and sewing supplies. We will have an iron and ironing board and cutting mats.   We’ll be working on drawstring bags and pillowcase dresses. For those of you who don’t sew, bring your favorite craft and an idea for a charity item. Example: if you knit or crochet, there are soap bags and washcloth patterns; if you make jewelry then bracelets or jewelry kits are a good craft for the shoeboxes. And if you feel that you’re not ‘crafty’ come anyway to learn something new. You can always string a ribbon through the top of a drawstring bag, or braid jump ropes from t-shirt strips!
If you have questions contact Deb Watts, Nancy Wells, or Alice Sturm

  Prayer Requests: 

We as a church believe in the power of prayer.  If you have a need that you would like us to join you in praying for, or if you have a praise report that we can celebrate with you, please let us know.  The Elders feel that it is a great privilege to pray for the needs of the congregation and have extended that privilege to the church body through the use of the Prayer Request Form.  It allows you to choose to have just the Elders pray for you, or to have your prayer request shared with the congregation through the email newsletter.  Here's what you need to do:

  • Fill out a Prayer Request Form (found in the prayer request basket), indicating whether it is a private (Elders only) or public request. Public prayer requests should be for you or for a close family member, again to protect privacy.  
  • If you choose to email a prayer request, send it to the church at ( indicating if it is a private or public request. For public prayer requests that occur after Sunday let the church office know by Thursday noon if you want it included in the Friday newsletter.  If you want the pastor to call you please indicate that and include your phone number.  
  • Public prayer requests will appear in Friday's newsletter for one week, unless you indicate otherwise. 
  • Remember that praise reports are encouraging to the church, so be sure to tell us about how God is working in your life!
