LIVE IT OUT COMMITMENTS
Now that people have had several weeks to respond to our Live It Out initiative, we have the first official news to share. Our commitments to date include:
- Serving: 62 volunteers

Live It Out booklets and response envelopes are still available at the Welcome Center. Please watch for more communication in the weeks ahead to clarify details and answer questions related to our vision for small groups and outreach ministry.
EXCITING NEW INITIATIVE
We are extremely excited about a new “Question and Answer” forum that we will begin the weekend of June 11/12. It will be a chance to expand our discussion of the weekend message and hear insights from Pastor Jeff in a more casual, interactive setting. Please keep an eye out for more details on both the prayer time and the new “Q&A” time!
The upstairs kitchen will be closed May 26 – June 4. The Properties Ministry Team will be updating this area. During this time, there will be no access to some items in the kitchen. Thank you to all involved in this!
If you indicated your service desire on one of the Live It Out envelopes or on our website, or if you have been in prayerful consideration of where you may get involved, we’d like to invite you to a Ministry Overview on Wednesday, May 25. Dinner will include taco salad and dessert for $2.50 per person at 5:30 PM, courtesy of one of our Wednesday Cook Teams, and there will be opportunities for you to connect with different ministry leads from 6:30 – 8:00 PM. Childcare is provided.
