Adult Bible Study

Come join us for a Bible Study before the Sunday service, from 8:30-9:15.  We will be looking at key chapters in the Bible. This is a great opportunity to learn more about God’s word and have great conversations with others. All adults are invited to join us. Bring a friend!


New Weekday Bible Study

Seeking Him "The Joy of Personal Revival" is the theme.  Due to some scheduling challenges we will be meeting at 6:30 PM in the church library.  If we have a large enough response we may still offer the 10 AM morning session as well.  Feel free to order a book for yourself, even if you can't be there at class.  It's an excellent 12 week devotional self study guide.  Attend when you can.  The book is available at ChristianBook.com If there are any questions-please contact Deb H.

Woven Anderson Japanese Garden Outing:

We enjoyed ourselves so much in Lake Geneva that we decided to add another summer activity. On August 6th we will be  heading over to visit the Japanese Gardens in Rockford. Afterwards we will have lunch at the Japanese restaurant JMK Nippon. You can look at the menu online if you like. We will meet at church at 9:00 and car pool into Rockford. Sign up sheet is on the bulletin board in the hallway. Please sign up by July 28. Cost is $10 for the admission to the gardens, (Seniors are $9) and then your lunch (roughly $10-$15).  The Japanese Garden is 12 acres, so there is a substantial amount of walking involved. Comfortable shoes are strongly suggested.
