Midweek Manna: This Wednesday, April 23, we will have a "Covered Dish" dinner at 5:15 PM in the Fellowship Hall. Please bring a sizeable and/or two side dishes to ensure there will be enough food for everyone. Also, don't forget to bring a contribution to put toward the chicken purchase. The leftover chicken is donated to the "Anchor House" in Auburndale, so your contribution also helps feed the boys and staff there! Make plans to be attend! Don't miss it!

Vacation Bible School 2014: Coming soon is our VBS "Gangway to Galilee," July 28 - August 1. Our theme involves lessons from Jesus by the Sea, and we plan to make the most of our unique location by the lake! We need your help and financial support. Please mark your calendar and plan to be here! Also, pray and check your budget! Our goal is to serve 100 or more children, and we need approximately $10 per child. Please consider "adopting" a child or two! On Sunday, mark your donations to "VBS" on the memo line of your check. We appreciate those who have already donated! More news to come later about other ways to help!

Are You Connected?: Connect Groups are small groups that meet in people's homes weekly. The purpose is connect with others as we encourage each other to love our neighbors as ourselves. We easily get distracted from the call God has for our lives and meeting in small groups is one way of redirecting our lives - hearts and minds - to loving as Jesus loved. The information on the study groups and the meeting times are on this website on the sidebar on the left side, names "Connect Groups." Or you may call Ken Steckert, the Connect Groups leader, at 863-967-3430, or call the church office at 863-967-1262. Come join us!
