Parking Lot Fund
Our parking lot has been resurfaced. We raised all but a little over $5,000.00. We paid the contractor so that we could get a 3% discount and covered the shortfall with our capital reserve funds. We would still like to be able to raise the remainder and replenish the capital reserve for future emergencies. If you can purchase one or more of the remaining parking spaces at $243.00, please help. We need 19 more spaces to raise all of the funds needed. To everyone who has already helped – Thank You! You really made a difference.

Ladies Zumba will begin a summer break after the session on May 15. We will resume early in September so stay tuned for exact dates. Meanwhile, don’t miss the final session for the spring on Tuesday, May 15, at 6 p.m. Zumba is open to every lady at every fitness level. You’ll love it! For more information you can call Jean Crabb at 757-427-9371 or email

Sermon Based Life Groups
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be able to study out what you hear on Sunday morning or to discuss it with a few close friends from church? What might that do for you in terms of helping you live out and apply the teaching from the Bible? Have you ever wanted to know that you had a few people in the church you were really close to and could count on? Sermon-based Life Groups are the answer! We currently have eight groups that meet in homes throughout the community. We will form more groups as leaders are trained and available. If you are interested in connecting with a Life Group call the office at 757-427-9371 or email Pastor Cheryl Pickford at
