FALL FELLOWSHIP DINNERS will be held in October and November.
Fall is a busy season with Revelations, Cooks Night Out, and the church picnic, so we are scheduling only one dinner.  The host can choose whether to schedule the dinner in October or November.


Registration will be handled differently than in the past.  We are asking that those
people who are willing to host a Fellowship Dinner please register on the PIC board.  Once we know how many people will be hosting, then we will know how many guests we can accommodate.  If you are willing to host a dinner, please sign up now through September 13th.  Please indicate the number of people you can accommodate for
dinner in your home, including the host/hosts.  Once we have the list of hosts, there will be a sign up sheet for those wanting to attend a dinner.


NEW MEMBER SUNDAY! On Sept. 13, 2015, we will welcome new members to our church. There is no required class or creed. We simply ask if you wish to join our congregation for worship, fellowship, and service.  If interested in joining the church, contact Dr. Robin McGonigle at or 316-641-5919.
