New Class: Your Favorite Movies Bible Study
Meeting ID: 895 1988 3229
Call in option: (669) 900 6833
We all have a number of movies that we love to watch. What makes them that way? Often it has to do with the way these movies speak to our deepest values and beliefs. Each week we will look at one such movie and explore the Biblical values and beliefs that it embodies. The first movie we will look at is: Back to the Future which deals with:friendship, loyalty, good & evil, time and fate. You can watch the movie before-and if you like, but that is not necessary. Clips from the film will be shown as part of the Bible Study. Future movies will come from those who participate. Click below to view this week’s movie clips.Click to view

“Bind Us Together”
Our New Sunday School Children & Seniors Postcard-Pal Program
This last week we launched a new program via our weekly Sunday School activities packets (always available in the box on the Turquoise Table in front of the Ministry Center). Every other week, children will receive a stamped addressed postcard with the name of a senior individual or couple in our church. Children are invited to draw a picture on one side of the postcard and add a note to the person(s) on the other side. Recipients are welcome, but not required, to respond if they choose to do so.
Worship Offerings This Week
Outdoor Worship Service
Sundays at 9:30 a.m.
The service time will begin at 9:30 a.m. This earlier time will help with the heat for those in attendance on the grass and those cleaning up after the service. The drive-in option will continue, as will the live stream option. We will provide some pop ups, but feel free to bring your own shade (umbrella, pop up, etc.) and your own cold beverage, if you’d like.
Community Group Gatherings
by Conference Call
We have numerous Community Groups that connect by conference call each week. Know that there is opportunity for each and every person to have this powerful form of Christian community at this time. Contact office if you have interest in Spanish language options.
Home Worship each Sunday:
We will email out links to the sermon as well as our live stream page weekly to help provide a way to worship, find connection with God, and deepen your walk with Jesus. The entire worship service resources are also posted on the church website:

Children’s Worship Activity Packets
are available each week for children of all ages. The supplies are in a self-contained packet each week, one per child, and safety measures are used when they are assembled. The activity packets coincide with the sermon each week. They are located on the turquoise table in front of the Ministry Center. Feel free to grab one for your child as you’re able throughout the week.
Sunday School Curriculum:
Parents, we have a Christian Education option for your family!
