160th Homecoming Luncheon

Our luncheon is always  a wonderful fellowship gathering.

The church will provide bread for the meal, you will bring everything else including meats. A sign-up sheet is available in the foyer.

  1. Bring lots of food. Often, we have guests that attend the meal and we want to make sure we have plenty.
  2. Bring your food in a dish that you do not need returned (preferred). OR put your name on your dish so we know who to return it to.
  3. We always need help cleaning up, we’d love to have your help.

I Can Only Imagine
Aug 5 @ 6:00 pm

We will be showing the wonderful movie based on the hit song, I Can Only Imagine.  I saw this movie in the theater and it is a great story with a great message and will give you an opportunity to invite friends and family to join us. More than anything I hope you will invite lost and unchurched people to join us for this event.  We will have popcorn and bottled water available for our guests and all of this will be free of charge.  If you have not seen the movie you don’t want to miss it. If you don’t like it I will refund the cost of admission to you!
