The Big Event!  On The Road With Jesus – June 13, 2010

Join a Team….Create your own Team….Sign up for a Team in the social hall… All ages, abilities, interests needed. On the 13th, we will gather for worship and then each team will set out on its own mission. Dress is casual. On the following Sunday, our worship will be a celebration of the places and people we met while On The Road. We will watch pictures of our groups at work and hear their stories of their day. Worship will be in the Social Hall so we can fellowship, watch the pictures, share the microphone. We will start with coffee and breakfast things and finish with communion.
