Welcome to week two of 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:


Join us as we pray for the following...

That we would more clearly reflect Jesus Christ in our love for one another.
Special focus:
 That those struggling with their faith would find encouragement and support.
Health Issues: Ruth Ford, Ez Sims, Nick & Shirley Scholten, and Doris Bittner.
This week’s * families/individuals: Chris Ford, Rick & Jewell Woodall, and David & Ashlee Derscheid.

* 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.
