Welcome to our online sign up for Service Worship, Kingdom Connections, which takes place on March 31! Please click the link which takes you to our sign up! Thank you for participating! Please invite your friends and family!
We are in need of many desserts and portions of fruit for our Unique and Special Needs Easter Picnic/Egg Hunt as well as our picnic for the congregants of Good News Community Church. Desserts can be store bought or homemade but NO NUTS or cakes please. Cupcakes are fine! Please drop all desserts off on Friday, March 29, between 9-4 or Saturday, March 30, before Noon in the kitchen on the NE campus. Please place the items in disposable containers. Thank you for this wonderful blessing!
We will be having a pancake breakfast sponsored by Brownie Troop 157 in Friendship Hall from 8:15-9:15 on Sunday, March 31! Donations welcome on that day! We also have a sign up for the breakfast! Thank you!
Please don’t forget that as a part of Service Worship, we are collecting non-perishable items such as cereal, peanut butter, soup and canned vegetables with pop tops if possible, applesauce, and pudding cups for the empty pantries of La Frontera Clinic and Haven Totes. We are also collecting toilet paper for the Single Mom scholars at Interfaith Community Services as well as those transitioning to their own apartments. Thank you for this great blessing!

September 29, 2019, Service Worship
Service Worship is a mission opportunity where all members of the congregation would participate in a mission project in place of a worship service on a Sunday morning. It is recommended that on every month that has five Sundays, on the fifth Sunday, we offer Service Worship instead of regular worship services. Typically, this would be about four Sundays a year. Successful churches that provide Service Worship offer a wide variety of mission opportunities for all abilities. For example, some groups may write letters to people who are in care facilities or bake cookies on the church property for a shelter. Other groups may go to the home of a veteran who is deployed or disabled and do yard work or paint the walls at a church in need. The morning will start with a short service to bless the workers and send them on their way. In addition to encouraging our own congregation to be in service, successful churches have found Service Worship to be an excellent outreach tool – both to invite those who want to serve alongside us and those who we are serving.
