All-Church Camping Trip

This year our annual camping trip will be nearby at West Branch State Park in Edinburg July 29-31. The church has reserved 20 sites and you can claim one today by talking to Lisa Gerren. Once they’re gone, they’re gone; so don’t delay! There are only a handful left.

June 8- Outback Ray animal show

June 22- Family Movie Night
June 29- Outdoor Water Fun/Picnic

Summer Ministry Trip

This summer our youth group will be helping 4 organizations here in the Portage & Summit County area that work in practical food & housing ministries. We’ll be lodged at The Chapel in Akron from July 5-9 and will finish with a day at Wild Water Kingdom. Sign up today so we can improve our planning. Cost will be $50-60/kid.

Cinematheology is Coming!

Every year we sponsor a summer series combining movies and theology. We take a look at some popular movies and evaluate their message based on God’s word. You can nominate a movie that you think would be a good match for this by using the tear-off form to the right. Think about movies in the last year and think about inviting someone you know for the series!

This Week's Sermon

Today in the Word: (Hebrews 6)

So there’s this description of a journey toward something. Toward the very presence of God. And the writer wants everybody to make it to the destination. The journey is hard and painful and we need each other along the way. Don’t be a drop out! Don’t get off the path or quit! If you decide, after seeing and tasting the richness of God’s kingdom and His So way of living, that it’s not for you… well, then it will be virtually impossible for you to come back and change
your mind.

ABFs @ 9:15 am

During our 9am hour we have two Adult Bible Fellowships that meet. SALT is for younger people (roughly up to 30 or so) who are in college or early in their careers. The other group, Seeking God’s Story, is in the more established stages of life. Either group is open to marrieds, singles, or married who come single. Both focus on informal discussion-oriented Bible study and application to real life.
