YOUTH BACK TO SCHOOL BASH
We will be heading to “The Axe Factor” in Saint Joseph. This will be on August 24 from 6-8 pm. Students will need to sign up for this event by online by the QR code or talk to Casey. Sign up now as there is a limited number of spots. Cost is $15 per student. This covers food and axe throwing for 2 hours. If they do not want to axe throw the whole time there are other items they can do. This is a great night for students to invite non believers. Parents will need to drop off students so they can sign a waiver.
EXPLORING CHRISTIAN MINISTRY
Do you have a desire for Christian ministry? Numerous people in our congregation have been wrestling with how God is leading them in regard to ministry, whether pastoring, missions, or biblical counseling. If you would like to learn more and begin exploring if God is calling you to some kind of vocational ministry, sign up for Exploring Christian Ministry—it will begin in September.
