Midweek Summer Small Groups begin June 6 – The month of May is flying by and plans are underway to prepare us for our Summer Ministry. All are invited and encouraged to participate in midweek small groups this summer.  The Lord really blessed those meetings in the life of the church last year.  Again these studies can be held either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday nights. We plan to highlight the book of John. What a great way to spread the gospel to your family as well as families outside the church.  Ryan Myhre is planning a special study at church for teens and their families. 
If you are interested in participating as a leader, host or both, please let me know or contact the church office.  We will have a brief meeting following the morning service on May 20, to get you the material and answer any questions you might have. 
We have three ways you can get involved.
As a host home
As a leader of the study
As a participant of the study
All Three!!!
