The annual church-wide potluck picnic and Easter egg hunt will be held outside on the grounds after late worship. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share. Drinks and fried chicken will be provided. Children should bring a basket for the egg hunt.
Think of it like a one-night dinner club! Sign up and you'll be assigned as a host home to go to on 4/27 for dinner with other women. That's it!
Sign up by confirming your attendance here.
If you'd like, you may request to be assigned to the same group as one friend. After that, it's pretty random and you're sure to make new friends of various ages!

Home for the Holidays
Saturday, December 9
10am - 2pm
Purchase tickets at the women’s ministry table during November
Home for the Holidays is a special time for women that includes a Panera-catered brunch, program, and shopping! We’ll fellowship and eat together around beautifully decorated tables. The program that follows will include Christmas worship songs led by some of our own women at First, and a Christmas message by speaker Darla Baerg. After that, there will be a time of shopping (12-2) with area vendors at their booths in the fellowship hall.
There will be great food, friends, laughter, shopping, door prizes, encouragement, challenge, and worship. We hope to see you there, and bring some friends!
