Community Service = Great Satisfaction

City Serve August 18 – We all know children leave behind an amazing amount of evidence they were there – marks, fingerprints, spilled drinks, etc. West Side’s previous work parties cleaned up a large part of what accumulated at Highland Park Elementary School. Help us continue the work! Join us there (1012 SW Trenton St) on Saturday, August 18, 9am–1pm. Get the shirt, do the work, have lunch, go home happy.
Sign-up table at the Welcome Center after worship. Contact Dick Ramsey

Vacation Bible School Shirts are missing!

If you have one, please return it (washed) to the church office. Thanks!

Evening Worship Service / Meal August 19

We are excited about our upcoming third evening worship service on Sunday, August 19 at 5:00pm. This service will be held in Howell Auditorium (change of venue) and feature guest preacher Mark Mohrlang, Pastor of Sanctuary Church (Christian Reformed) that meets on Sundays at Taproot Theatre in Greenwood. Mark, a gifted musician (who, he says, used to have a lot of hair), is passionate about the church understanding the value and significance of living out their faith in their community – home, school and office. He is a Regional Coordinator for the Made To Flourish Network and leads a cohort with the Cascade Fellows. Mark received his M. Div. from Fuller Theological Seminary. We hope to see you here!
