Welcome to Power Up, a three week intergenerational series of worship and activities focusing on 2 Peter 1:3. 

We would like to know you were here today - please connect with us:


PRAYER

Join us as we pray for the following...

That we would more clearly reflect Jesus Christ in our service to those in need.
Special focus:
 That the poor, hungry and lonely in our community would be cared for.
Health Issues: Ruth Ford, Ez Sims, Nick & Shirley Scholten, and Doris Bittner.
This week’s * families/individuals: Doris Bittner, Bill Lutz, and Margo Lewis Family.

* Our church family is very important to us and so we choose to remember a few families/individuals each week in prayer.

Please share with us God’s activity in your life and how our Pastoral staff can pray for you.

Power Up Day Camp

Today begins a three-week series of intergenerational worship and activities focused upon the truth that in 2 Peter 1:3, “God’s power has given us everything we need to live a godly life.” Power Up is more than a new sermon series, it is a multi-faceted event designed to help all of us learn about and live in God’s power.  RSVP for lunch next week here or on your Connect Card and plan to stay for continued activities in the afternoon following the family Worship service each of the three Sundays.
