What’s Going on Around the Church?

Choir Camp Registration update!

We're so excited about our dinner theater on July 25 at 6pm, when the children present the musical "What's Up, Zak?". Funny, lively songs introduce a town bustling to prepare for a visit from a V.I.P. The leaders of Jericho decide to throw a parade to welcome Jesus. But the people who need love the most, the lowly beggars and the tax collectors, are not invited to the party. We will discover how special Bartimaeus and Zacchaeus must have felt to learn that Jesus saw them and loved them just the way they were! A wonderful story for believers of all ages. Space is still available for rising 1st-6th graders to participate in choir camp, July 22-25 from 9am-3pm. Registration is available on our website! Cost is $60
