This week's announcements and happenings.

Baptism - July 28

Throughout the year, our church family celebrates with those who have responded to God's invitation to be baptized.  If you are interested in responding to God in this way, our next baptism service will be Sunday, July 28th.  The church office will contact each person to set up a time to meet with individually with one of our pastors.  Let us know you're ready to take the next step in your faith journey by using this form.

Child Dedication - August 11

We believe that child dedication is a significant milestone in the lives of both parents and children as you make a commitment to raising your children in a way that honors God. If you have a child you'd like to dedicate, we would be excited to join you alongside your journey! Fill out the form below, and we will be in touch will you shortly afterwards.

Crisis Care Kits in June & July

We are collecting Crisis Care Kits in June and July.  Crisis Care Kits (CCKs) are distributed through the Nazarene Church in the United States and around the world, wherever disaster strikes.  Pick up your Crisis Care Kit bag at one of the Touchpoint Centers today.  A list of necessary items and instructions are included with each bag.  Fill a bag on your own or as a family.  Return your CCK to the bin in the foyer beginning June 9th.  Our goal is 60 kits this summer!
