Visiting IM Missionaries

You are invited to join us for lunch this Thursday, July 3 at 12 noon, to meet American Baptist International Missionaries Carlos Bonilla and Mayra Giovanetti who are currently serving in Nicaragua. 
Their family will be here to share about the exciting ministry opportunities taking place in Nicaragua and the work of American Baptists to help share and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We anticipate their formal presentation to begin around 12:30- so if you are unable to join us for lunch you may still hear from this the Bonilla-Giovanetti family at this time.  Lunch will be a baked potato bar from McAlisters and will cost around $5-6 per person. It is important that you let us know if you plan to join us this Thursday for lunch by Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. so that we may plan accordingly.  We hope you will be able to join us for this very personal time with this Missionary Family!

Upcoming Sermon Series: VOLATILE!

Coming in August:  topics and discussion about topics that are often avoided in the life of the church due to their polarizing nature.

First:  to have a voice in the discussion and
Second:  to work for peace and reconciliation among our differences so that we can
Third:  present an honest and effective witness to God's ministry in the world
