We invite you to bring India-inspired food if your feeling adventurous in your eating, or other food if you're not so much... we will share a meal at 6:30p, and David and Kendra Wiebe will share some photos from their recent trip. We also hope to connect w/ mission/service workers in India (e.g. Sri?) in Sunday school, fellowship time, and/or worship time on Sunday 3/11.


MCC SALE - We will continue our MCC sale preparations with a few craft and woodworking gatherings. Please talk to Pastor Dave if you're interested, and we'll figure out a time.

The youth will be serving up some delicious pasta to try out the different sauces, along with bread, salad, and desserts. Donations will be accepted for the youth fund. Look for a sign up sheet coming soon!


CHOIR - We are in the planning stages for the Good Friday and Easter Sonrise services with Antelope Park Church of the Brethren.  Details on upcoming choir practices to follow.
