Make plans to hang out after second service THIS SUNDAY for a tailgating party! This will be a great time to build community and get to know those who are new to our church. Bring food and drinks for your family, as well as lawn chairs. We will have grills available for those who want to cook their own meat. Football fans can listen to the Bears game, and possibly watch the game in the lobby area. We are doing our best to provide a live stream of the game. Invite your friends for a fun afternoon!
(We are planning this as an outdoor event, so we might need to cancel if it rains. Please check your e-mail Sunday morning if you see rain in the forecast.)
Small groups will begin the week of Oct. 6. If you are interested in joining a group, please sign up at the Info Table after service on Sunday. Small groups are really the heart of our church. This is a place to join with groups of 10-14 people for weekly Bible study, prayer, accountability and fellowship.
HELP WITH CLEANING
Now that God has blessed us with a permanent church home, we are researching several options for keeping the building clean. In the meantime, we need your help! We are in need of volunteers to help with routine cleaning. Please sign up at the Info Table if you can help once a month or more. This is a great opportunity for families or small groups to serve together. We will contact you with details.
5K FOR KENDALL
Come out and support one of our Sanctuary families, the Atkinsons, at a 5K for Kendall Oct. 19. Friends and neighbors of the Atkinson family are organizing the run, as well as a “Royal Fall Festival” in celebration of Kendall’s 5th birthday. Kids are invited to dress up as their favorite fairy tale character in honor of our valiant princess, Kendall. The fall festival is 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Freedom Park, 1600 Park Place (in the Southgate subdivision). Registration for the 5K begins at 9 a.m. and is $10 per person or $25 per family. All proceeds benefit the Kendall Quinn Medical Fund. For more info or to volunteer, contact .
We are in the process of changing our online database to a new hosting company. If you attempt to log-in to our online directory through our web site, you will need to set a new password. You can do that using this link. We are still in the process of setting up the new database, but please feel free to log in, check the accuracy of your family’s info and upload a profile photo. You will find the new database much more user friendly than the one we used in the past!
Thrive and Crossfire, our junior high and high school ministries, are in full swing!

Students are welcome to arrive at 6:30 for hang-out time.
