(Also, for 5th graders who move to the middle on June 6, the middle has programming in the Fellowship Hall during the 9:30 service only.)
  • Beverly McKeel is facilitating a Bible study for 5th grade girls and their moms this summer! The study is called Lies Young Women Believe and the Truth that Sets them Free by Nancy Demoss Wolgemuth and Dannah Gresh. It will be a great opportunity for moms and their 5th grade daughters to have a biblical discussion about the most common lies that this generation of tweens tends to believe. It will also create a space to build relationships as the 5th grade girls transition from the children's ministry to the middle school ministry. The study will take place during the 11:00 service beginning on June 13. To register, visit
