Commissioning Prayer, Sunday, May 27
During morning worship this Sunday there will be a commissioning prayer for our Nada Mission Team.
Sunday Only Group
We are looking to bring a group on Sunday after Sunday School for adults who can’t go both days and for younger children.
Once again the primary focus of our mission trip to Nada this year will be the graduation celebration to encourage young people in Nada to stay in school and graduate. We need lots of help planning, setting up, and conducting the celebration which will include, a basketball game, music, cookout, and more. We hope many of you will join us on this trip, but whether or not you can join us on the trip we need your help with prizes of all sorts (souvenirs, fun or useful items, gift cards). We will have prize drawings to encourage community participation and gifts for the graduates.
On Saturday we will work to clean-up the basketball court and repair the goals, help with whatever is needed for the Nada Mountain Heritage Festival the following weekend, organize and set up for the Graduation Celebration, and any other home repair projects that are needed.
Legend’s Baseball Game
We enjoyed spending time at the Legend’s baseball game last year with our friends from Nada and will do it again this year.
