Family Lake Day at Forest Home


Sunday, August 27th 1:00p

Come enjoy a day at the Lake! Invite all your friends! We'll be swimming, kayaking, and having a great time by the water. Activities include: "The Blob," a semi-deflated pillow used for launching your friends into the lake, brand new water slides, a boating area with paddle boards and kayaks, and a sandy beach, perfect for bringing your beach towels, chairs, and an easy-up if you have one! Lifeguards provided by Forest Home Staff. Bring your picnic lunches, towels, and prepare to have a great time!
From the Nominating Committee:

The month of August means summertime activities for most of us, but to families with school-age children, it's time for "back to school."  For the Nominating Committee, it represents the time is near to prepare a new slate of committee members for 2018.

The Nominating Committee is very pleased with the work of all the ministry groups in our church, and we are excited about those that God is calling upon us to approach for service in the new year. If you have a passion for a particular ministry, please let us know. You may also want to recommend people for positions of service.

We on the Nominating Committee are also very encouraged by the good progress that the Board of Director's Administrative Committee is making to enhance our church committee structure. We are thankful to them for their receptivity to our input and hopeful that the congregation will approve their suggestions in the next couple months. Their work will give the Nominating Committee a reasonable number required to fill the positions on each committee and a positive structure for our church to advance our ministry in meaningful ways.

Please let us know if you have any recommendations for our Nominating Committee.

*Many have been asking how to support the Garcia family during Seve's recovery, and since his diet is currently very delicate, grocery gift cards would be a tremendous help. If you'd like to contribute a gift card from Trader Joe's or Stater Bros, feel free to bring one to church on Sunday and place it in the collection plate, or stop by our church office and we will arrange to deliver it to them.
