Fall is here, and soon our pumpkins will be too! On September 24th, we will be receiving an 18-wheeler FULL of so many pumpkins!  We would love your help in unloading all of these pumpkins. To help, simply show up at 12:30pm on the front lawn of the church facing Walnut Creek.  Once you arrive to unload, you will be placed on a team and assigned a certain area of the patch to unload pumpkins. Pumpkin unloading is fun for the whole family! We have opportunities for all ages and abilities to help us set up The Patch.  For more information, email us at or visit our website here.   Please avoid parking in the spaces facing N. Walnut Creek Dr. by the pumpkin patch on Sunday Morning so our pumpkin truck can park there. 

DAY:  September 26th  •  Tuesday  •  9:00 – 10:30 AM  •  Chapel – C10  
EVENING:  September 28th  •  Thursday  •  6:30 – 8:00 PM  •  Bldg. A216  

Everyone knows “it takes a village” when it comes to raising kids, and our newest group “The Village” is here to help you do just that. Each month The Village will feature a program that will highlight a particular challenge as it relates to parenting, mentoring, leading, and/or teaching children, and help you find ways to respond to those challenges in a practical and loving way. The Village is intended for all types of caregivers as we all play a role in raising the children in our community! The goal is for everyone to have the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and resources, while also making connections with other parents, grandparents, youth leaders, and teachers who are likely experiencing many of the same challenges when it comes to raising our children. We want to create a space where everyone can learn, share, laugh, cry, support and connect…after all, isn’t that what a village is for? We will offer this wonderful group in two sessions per month. One will be the last Tuesday of each month in the morning with the second on the last Thursday of each month in the evening, this will give everyone an opportunity to attend. “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
