SUMMER WORSHIP ON WEDNESDAYS (W.O.W.): will be available for those who
miss worship on Sunday. Services will be every Wednesday evening beginning at 6:15
p.m., starting on June 2nd and will continue through the summer. Each Wednesday uses
the previous Sunday’s sermon and hymns in a more relaxed and simpler format. Holy
Communion will be celebrated on the third Worship on Wednesday of the month. You
don’t need to take a vacation from worship this summer. Worship On Wednesdays.

2021 SERMON/WORSHIP SERIES: ROUTE 66 : This series is an epic, one-year road trip through the Bible. Route 66 was originally a highway that became one of the most famous roads in the United States. It ran from Chicago to Santa Monica, California from 1926 until 1985. For many years it served as the primary route for those who were migrating west looking for a better life. In a similar way, our journey through the 66 books of the Bible is the route to a better life. More than that, to life itself because it leads us to Jesus Christ. 48 of the most important stops on the way through the Bible have already been mapped out. We won’t have much time to spend in any one place. We have places to go and people to meet.

SUNDAY MORNING ADULT BIBLE STUDY: is getting weird. This summer we are going
to study the Top-Ten WEIRD Bible stories. You know about Daniel and the lion’s den,
but how about the teenager who fell out of a window and died than was raised to life?
Bible Study meets in the fellowship hall from 9:30-10:30.
