BUMP Mission Group Fundraiser

On Sunday, April 22, the youth attending the BUMP Mission trip to Baltimore will be hosting a lunch after church. Donations will be greatly appreciated. 

Menu includes baked chicken breasts, mashed potatoes, green beans.

BUMP kids will need to show up on Saturday at 3:30 pm to make preparations for the Sunday meal.

Camp Registrations

We are still 2 months from Camp and we have 45 kids already registered.  That's almost 1/2 of all the spaces filled.  What a blessing to see these registrations coming through this early.  Can't wait to see you all in June!

If you have not registered your children, be sure to reserve a spot for them and register online or print the registration form and turn it in to Mike or Denise.
