On July 19, 16 youth and 3 adults left for Camp Barnabas for a week of helping kids and teens with special needs. This is an incredible week of  life-changing experiences sure to change perspectives, redefine disability, and spread God’s love in an unforgettable way! We are excited for them and the experience they are about to have, each serving a child whose needs are great. While this work is incredibly meaningful, it is also quite difficult.

Begins Sunday, August 3

Every Sunday in August | 30 minutes before each service

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sing in the choir? Do you enjoy singing, even if it’s only in the shower or along with the radio or your favorite CD? We invite you to join us for MorningSong, a unique summertime choir experience that extends the entire month of August – no experience required! We will meet every Sunday morning in August, 30 minutes before each service to learn a piece of music and then lead worship in song. It’s really that simple. And the best part: it’s family friendly — kids and grandkids welcome! Come and enjoy the view and experience only available from the choir loft. For more information, contact Taylor Davis ( 817/339-5074.
