The day begins with Worship at 10:30am and then we move outside for the mini carnival and cookout until 2pm. While many of us continue to find meaning in our families of origin, all of us have also created new memories with our family here at church. After all, we always say, "This is a place to call home." 

In our church, we recognize and honor the unique tapestry that each of our families are made up of...from two parent households with children, to single persons who celebrate the impact of lifelong friendships made through their church community, to a couple that has been together for 35 years, and even to a set of grandparents who love to bring their grandkids to worship. We realize that we are all participating in many forms of family. 

We want to celebrate together this year with a "Mini-Carnival and Cookout!" There will be some of your favorite carnival games for kids AND adults too: coke bottle ring toss, frog launch, duck pond, golf putting, plinko, spin and win, and many more! There will be games and prizes for EVERYONE! We will have an adult corner with washers, corn hole and other games available, too. On top of all the games, there will also be great FREE food:
