Divorce Recovery Class
Wednesday Nights, Sept. 11th @ 6:30pm
We would like to invite you or anyone you know who has experienced a divorce to our Divorce Recovery class. This class is designed to bring healing and hope to those who are dealing with the pains and trials of divorce. The class begins on September 11th and will meet every Wednesday at 6:30pm. Children and teens are welcome to attend the children and youth group classes during the same time. The registration is $30.
Aloha Shirt Sunday
You may notice many Hawaiian shirts in the congregation today. No, we are not on vacation. This is our Fourth Annual Hawaiian Shirt Sunday honoring the memory of our Godly Christian brother, Vernon Beach.
Attention college students, parents, retired, employed, and unemployed adults. Do you love Jesus and want to do meaningful Kingdom work? Can you do a simple, ten-minute task? Do you breath oxygen? Great! You are more than qualified to help with King’s Kidz on Wednesday nights. We are in need of a few volunteers that can teach/lead a station on Wednesday nights for a several-week rotation. If you can help, talk to Colin or Deona Foust.

We are blessed to welcome three new families to the Mountainside congregation.
