Upcoming Events

Trunk or Treat 2018 -Friday, Oct. 26, 2018 from 6 – 8 p.m.
Join us in celebrating the fall season with Trunk or Treat. Costumed kids (and adults) will be treated to games, crafts, a hot dog dinner and, of course, lots of candy. This event will take place on Friday, October 26, on the Upper Lawn from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. The event is free of charge to any who would like to come. Trunk or Treat presents us with a wonderful opportunity to provide a fun and safe place for holiday celebration for our community! Kids will enjoy food, fun games, Fall traditions, and lots of fun prizes. The event continues to grow, so candy and prize donations will be accepted in the Narthex or Church Office throughout the month of October. Please be sure to invite friends and neighbors! While our event is free, donations of new adult socks are welcome. These items will be donated each week to individuals in need at our “and 2 Fishes” weekly meals.
Support the Student Ministry Food Drive,
On Sunday, Oct. 28, costumed students will collect your canned goods and non-perishable items for the Vista Teen Outreach. These items will help replenish the food cupboards that feed families in need across our community.
Club 45 CLUB45 is our preteen group that meets every third Sunday at 10:30 a.m. in Room 212. We will play games and discover God’s Story.
