General Announcements

Support HERO Central!   Join us on Sunday, April 28 in the lobby at Ryf Road for the Silent Auction!  Bidding will close at 12:30 pm.  Bid high!  Bid often!

The past two years, your generous donations have enabled us to raise over $5,000! With those funds, HERO Central has been able to complete painting projects, increase the family activities budget, purchase new computers and ongoing, needed supplies. This year, proceeds will purchase new curriculum for HERO Central, wood chips for the playground and gardening supplies for the HERO Central garden plot. Your kindness and generosity will allow HERO Central to continue to be a fantastic, safe place for kids to learn and grow in their walk with Jesus.

Questions?  Contact Kim Patterson or the church office at 920-231-7070.

Garden plots are still available!  Please click HERE to signup for yours today.

We are having a build day THIS SUNDAY from 1-4PM. Snacks and water will be provided, so please come help us install fencing, mark garden paths, and build a compost bin!  If you are able to partner with us through donations, we need items like mulch for paths between the garden plots, compost to help amend the soil, and a storage bin for garden tools. If you are able to donate something smaller we could use items like watering cans, hand tools, and/or garden gloves. You can donate at community-church.com/giftgarden. Thank you! 

Celebrate Recovery has started! Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12 step recovery program for anyone struggling with hurt, pain or addiction of any kind. It is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling our lives. Celebrate Recovery is on Sunday evenings at Ryf Road from 6-8pm. Contact the church office for more info.

We’re joining Calvary Bible Church in Neenah for a one-day conference called Blended & Blessed.   Blended & Blessed® is the only one-day live event and live stream just for stepfamily couples, single parents, dating couples with kids, and those who care about blended families. Join us at Calvary Bible Church for a day discussing what you can do to have a healthy stepfamily marriage. With some of today’s most trusted and respected experts, Blended & Blessed will challenge, inspire, and encourage you.  If you are part of a stepfamily or know someone who is, this is a can’t-miss opportunity!  Blended & Blessed will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2019 @ 8:30AM.  Contact Erv Fischer for more information.
