Celebration of Our Journey Unified Worship Service May 17

Our entire congregation will join together for one unified worship service at 11am in the main Sanctuary. The service will feature our children and youth who have been on their Journey to Faith, our high school graduates, the youth and chancel choirs, and the CAYA band. There will be no 8:45 am service. Join us as we worship together!

Please join us before the service for coffee, snacks, and a time of fellowship on the front steps of the Sanctuary, beginning at 10:30am.

After the service, join us for a free cookout lunch on the church lawn! This will also be your last chance to purchase dessert or other baked goods at the Youth ASP Bake Sale.

Following lunch, all are invited to a forum with our church coach George Bullard to hear the results of our triplet process and choose three of the themes that emerge to use as the foundation for the next phase of our journey, the Strategic Season.
