Sunday, May 31, Church in the Park, 10:30 am
Mark your calendars for our first ever Church in the Park worship service!  Church will be at Lions Pavilion in Kirkwood Park; there is ample parking next to the pavilion and a great playground for kids, too.  We’ll celebrate the year and enjoy a BBQ lunch afterwards.  We’re looking for grill masters!  Let Terry Baker know if you can help with that.  It will be lots of fun, so we hope to see you there!  Note: This is the Sunday AFTER Memorial Day weekend.  Lions Pavilion is where the Greentree book fair is held, and is closest to the tennis courts off of Adams Avenue.  Please RSVP to Yolanda at so we know the count for BBQ.  Thanks!
