2018 Fall Festival Held

About 55 people attended and enjoyed the Fall Festival the afternoon on November 10, 2018. The church was decorated with carnival games throughout the classrooms.  Games included Ping Pong Ball Toss, Nerf Gun Targets, Balloon Toss, Donut Bobbing, Pumpkin Ring Toss, Cupcake Walk, Mini Cornhole, and Laundry Basket Beachball Throw!  Those of all ages who participated got tickets which they were able to redeem for prizes at the Prize Table.

In addition to the games, there was also a drawing for a pumpkin pie (& whipped cream), a photo spot to take pictures with your family & friends, a hayride, food & drink, and a place to just rest & relax a bit.

Although it was a bit chilly, several kids and adults braved the weather and bundled up to enjoy the Hayride.  The rosy cheeks and happy laughter were the sign they had returned to the church after about 20 minutes!

Thanks to all who helped and thanks to all who came!  It was a fun afternoon and a chance to meet some new people.  Here are some pictures captured throughout the Fall Festival:

Worship — What Does It Mean?

While Pastor Robert & several other men were away at a Men’s Retreat, we were led in worship by the Van Horn and Patterson children.  THANKS & WELL DONE to the kids and parents!

Emma Van Horn was the worship leader, including prayer & share time.

Lily Van Horn gave a great sermon titled “Worship – What Does It Mean?” based on John 4:21-24.

Josiah Van Horn, Ava Van Horn, and Cora Patterson helped with the Scout & Scamper puppet show for the Children’s Time (but it was Adults sitting in the front pews as well as collecting the money for the Building Up the Temple offering which the children usually do!).

Cora Patterson helped take the microphone around for the Prayer & Share time. ALL of the kids (plus Chris Van Horn) did a great time leading the Praise Time part of the worship service.  Thanks all!

Here’s a link to a video of the service.

Spiritual Adultery (10/13/2018)

Here is Pastor Robert Van Horn’s sermon from October 13, 2018 titled “Spiritual Adultery” based on James 4:4-6.

James 4:4-6 4 You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. 5 Or do you think Scripture says without reason that the spirit he caused to live in us envies intensely? 6 But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
