H – Heart - What do I have passion for and love to do?

A – Abilities - What natural talents and skills do I have?

P – Personality - Where does my personality best suit me to serve?

E – Experiences - What experiences have I had both good and bad that will help me understand the best way to serve in ministry and share my faith more naturally?

Come and discover your unique gifting by God through this sermon series & Bible study (beginning Sunday, April 15th) so that you can find and fulfill your God given purpose in life. The Bible study will take place every Sunday morning at 9am. Cost of the SHAPE Bible study book is $10.

There's a NEW GAME in town! It's VBS....just different!

WHAT MAKES A MEGA SPORTS CAMP SO SPECIAL?

MEGA Sports Camp is a church-led, volunteer-friendly outreach that engages kids preschool to Grades 6, while teaching them biblical principles.

Why do kids like it? Because it's fun! MEGA Sports Camp is an active outreach. Kids don't just sit and listen to someone talk about the Bible. They have a chance to play a fun sport, like football, while learning biblical principles. There will also be other activities to choose from such as yard games & creative arts! Having fun makes learning easy!

More details will follow! There are many volunteer opportunities to be filled. Please prayerfully consider your part in making this outreach event a HUGE success for our community.

I am excited to announce that Cheryl Quick has graciously agreed to coordinate the Wed Night Dinners through the end of this AWANA season (beginning of June).

With that said, here's how YOU and YOUR FAMILY can be heroes to our AWANA families:
