Fall Gathering 2023

As the weather gets a little cooler we begin to think of pumpkins, hay rides, and costumes. (Oh, wait this is's not cooler yet!). But, we can still think toward pumpkins, hay rides, and costumes. And maybe a littleTrunk or Treat and Chili Cook-off!

One of the beautiful things about this church is our ability to enjoy life and reach out to our surrounding community. Fall Gathering (coming October 22) is a beautiful way to reach out to the community as well as have a little intergenerational fun.

This year, as in the past, we will have a Hayride, Games, Inflatables, Craft Tent, Chili Cook-off, and Trunk or Treat. There is a place for everyone to be involved.

Will you help give out treats for simple carnival games? Will you stand at the inflatable and guide the kids? Will you help set-up or take down? Will you decorate your car and hand out candy for Trunk or Treat? Will you drive

your truck (or someone else’s) for the hayride?

Will you make chili for the cook-off?

Every single church member can find a way to connect to this fun and important event. How will you participate?

You can sign up here to volunteer, or call the church office.

Technical Volunteers Needed

You may not realize it, but a lot of work goes on behind the scenes each week to make worship happen! We are looking for volunteers who can offer at least one Sunday morning each week to help with the technical aspects of worship, including:

• Running the audio board

• Overseeing the slides for worship songs, responses, etc

• Panning and focusing the camera as necessary

• Helping oversee and troubleshoot the worship streaming to YouTube

No special skills or experience are necessary - we'll teach you everything

you need to know! We'd like to start a rotation schedule in

August that will help us know how to plan for Sundays.


Disaster Recovery and Response

Disaster Response and Recovery - Are you interested in being part of our congregation's assistance in responding and recovering from disasters? Here are two opportunities:

• We are developing a partnership with the community of Rolling Fork, MS as they are still in recovery from recent tornadoes. We'd like to take a trip there this fall to help - no specific date yet, we can set dates depending on our schedules.

• We are also recruiting members who are interested in general response to an event - whether something happens on our campus, or in the community. This can include physical help with cleanup, working at shelters, distribution and/or feeding stations, or offering general assistance to those affected. Many different trainings are available depending on your interest!
