It’s that time of year again! Our Homecoming picnic is scheduled for Sunday, August 26. The picnic begins right after worship and there will be hot dogs, hamburgers, a DJ, games, and lots of fun.

In order to be sure we’ll have enough food, there’s a sign-up sheet in the church parlor starting August 5…. folks can sign up to bring a side dish or dessert (their choice) or they can bring both!

Any questions contact Janet at janet.kuehl@gmail.com. We hope to see you there!
