Adults – “The Life of Christ” with Chuck Henderson – Over twenty years ago I was asked to teach a course on the Life of Christ, and that study changed my spiritual life profoundly. Ever since, concentrating on the person and work of our Savior is a subject that I return to again and again. Join me as we read through the gospels and seek to gain a deeper understanding of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Trunk-or-Treat – Trunks or Truck Beds Needed!
It’s not every day that we get a chance to have a great big community party! We need volunteers to decorate their car trunk or truck bed and pass out candy to the kids in the community on Halloween night. Trunk-or-Treat is a safe and fun way for kids to enjoy the Halloween holiday and a great opportunity to interact with our community. Vehicles will be decorated in creative ways by their owners, and children will trick-or-treat from trunk to trunk in our church parking lot, filling their bags with candy! Start planning now! Prizes will be given to the best and most creative trunks.
If you aren’t able to decorate a trunk, please help provide candy for those decorating their trunks. There are two collection boxes for candy located in the family life center and the front church entrance.
A sign-in sheet to reserve your parking space is located on the bulletin board by the sanctuary and in the FLC.
