Our God is one of relationship: no image(s) will suffice. 



CELEBRATE – Today, we will host our June potluck will be early and will also be a bridal shower for Bryce & Casey and Kelsey & Garrett.  Please join us!


WE NEED YOUR BELTS! – The Waegli's/Schlegels are collecting gently used belts to take with them to Boise for the Homeless Shelter where Marc volunteers.  Please bring them by today, Sunday, June 3.


STUDY - The summer Sunday school class will be a class in which we explore church membership, baptism, and catechism together. We will meet in the youth room, and, even if you don't consider yourself "youth," please talk to Dave or an elder (Anita, Dallas, or Wade) if you're interested.


SAY CHEESE - There is power in images, so pictures are often taken during church events with the intent of using these for community outreach through our website and Facebook page. If you object to your picture being used in this manner, please let Kathy Haake know.


TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLGAME - The next game for the men's slow pitch softball team is on Monday, June 4th at 6:15 pm at Ballard Field.  Come out and cheer them on!


ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL - The Child Protection Team is pleased to announce that on June 10th, during our adult Sunday school time, Christy Prang of the Child Advocacy Center of Lincoln has agreed to speak to us.  The Child Advocacy Center addresses the problem of child abuse by offering a safe, child friendly environment for alleged child victims.  As their Training & Prevention Director, Christy's role includes public education.  We look forward to her message and hope you will join us!


CAN YOU HOST? - Anita is coordinating the home stays for Central Plains Conference in Lincoln (June 21-24). Please talk to her if you would be willing to host out-of-town guests that weekend.


CONFERENCE PRAYER REQUEST -     Pray for the many congregations hosting Bible School this summer. Pray that God would multiply our efforts to share the good news about the way of Jesus with children and families in our communities.
