Bring your swimsuit and towel, and we will provide the grilled hotdogs/hamburgers. Please bring a covered dish side, salad, or dessert to share. Please RSVP to the church office no later than Friday, June 21, so we will be sure to have enough food. We hope you will come and enjoy getting to know our new parsonage family during this fun event.

Youth to Zipline!
We are planning a Zipline and Urban Air dinner trip to Tallahassee on June 21. RSVP to Ridge Harper to let him know if you are coming. He needs a final count to make the reservations.
Join Our Music Groups!
If you want to serve the Lord through music, we invite you to join in our Church music groups: Chancel Choir, Handbells Choir, Handchimes Choir, and Youth Choir. If you can play any instrument, we invite you to play during services. If you know music grammar, that is great, but if you don't, we will teach you all that is necessary. Each person is gifted and loved by the Lord. Contact Music Director Yuliia Billa (email@example.com) for additional information.
