Summer Songfest and Ice Cream Social!

A wonderful evening of song, fellowship and fun is being planned for Sunday, August 27th at 6:00 p.m. We’ll start the evening with our hymn sing. You pick your favorites and we’ll all join in! This will be congregational singing only, no choir specials this time! After singing we’ll cool off with some delicious ice cream complete with all sorts of tasty toppings! Of course, cookies or brownies would go well with our ice cream! Be thinking about a favorite treat you might like to bring to share!! Most importantly, plan to come ready for an evening of fun and fellowship!!

JOY Group hosts Peel Ferry / Restaurant outing

Doesn’t a trip across the lake on the Peel Ferry sound nice and refreshing? If you think so, plan on joining us Wednesday, August 16th! We will go to the Dinner Bell Restaurant across Bull Shoals Lake on the Peel Ferry and enjoy lunch. That’s the place with the really, really good fried pies!

Be sure to sign up so we can let the restaurant know how many will be coming for lunch and to make extra fried pies! We will leave the church at 10:30 AM to be sure to catch the ferry over the lake. It will be a great day – mark your calendar!

Choir Practice will begin Wed., Aug 30th at 5:30 p.m. We’ll practice a bit and then get all of our “first practice visiting” done while we share a meal. Bring a dish to share!
