Please join us Friday, Aug. 22 for our annual church picnic. This year’s theme, “The Feeding of the Three Fifty” reflects our goal of having 350 members present. The picnic will start at 6 p.m. west of the church in the driveway between the south mobile and church building. Free hamburgers and hot dogs will be provided, but we ask that participants bring a salad or dessert. Invite a friend to come with you and remember to bring your own tableware and lawn chairs. We do ask that you let us know you’re coming so that we can be sure to have enough food. Stop by the church office, or call 913-367-2837.

We provide the use of an NIV Bible and the workbook, “Above All Else.” No memory work is required and you will not be asked to answer questions or read. The course is open to anyone with an interest in learning about Christianity. Over 1,500 people have taken this course. You will be richly blessed through it.
