Chuppers (our Church Supper) takes place on Wednesdays - the starting time for the meal is 5:15 with Bible Studies for all ages beginning at 6:00 p.m.  Plan on bringing your family out on Wednesday nights for a great meal, some delightful fellowship and diving into the Word of God.  As the old saying goes "Seven days without church makes one weak!"  Call the church office by Tuesday afternoon to make a reservation for the meal.  The cost is $3.00 per individual or $8.00 per one household family.  THIS IS THE LAST WEEK FOR CHUPPERS FOR THE SEASON.  The menu this week will be a pot luck - bring your favorite dish to share with everyone.

Considering the many needs for prayer in our church, community and world - a weekly prayer group has been formed and meets on Sunday evenings at 6:00 p.m. in the Matec Building.  Everyone is welcome to attend.

Do you have questions about what it means to be a Christian?  Are you a new believer still trying to figure things out?  Have you been a believer for a while but would like a refresher course on what it means to be a disciple?  If so, Pastor Brent Meyer is teaching a Seeker's Class on Sunday evenings at 5:00 p.m.  Come join us!

Saturday, May 2nd at 11:00 a.m. the Mother Daughter Luncheon will be held in Fellowship Hall.  Tickets sales are now closed.  We will see all of those who purchased a ticket in May!  There will be fashion entertainment by Cato's and the menu is Broccoli Cheddar Soup, Turkey Croissant, Pasta Salad, Chips, Fruit Cup and Cupcake. 

The theme for this year's VBS is Everest, Conquering Challenges with God's Mighty Power and the dates are June 8 - 12, 9:00 a.m. to noon.  More details will be forthcoming.

Lake Springfield Baptist Camp is accepting registrations for summer camp.  Visit their website at for more information.  If you sign up online, please inform the church office so we can add you to our list.
