We are having our annual server's picnic and pool party Saturday, August 17th 11:00 - 2:00 at Heman Park Pool. Parents are invited to help chaperone and socialize. We will provide drinks, snacks and, of course, pizza. The pizza will be delivered at 11:30 and it may be totally devoured by 11:31 (so don't be late if you want pizza).

We will be at one of the picnic tables on the west side of the pool.

Please RSVP to me directly at if you can attend so we can make sure we have enough pizza. Please also contact me if you have any questions

Michael James Mette Concert

Michael James Mette Band

On Sunday, July 14 at 6:00 pm, Michael James Mette and his band (his children!) will be sharing a concert here in the MRC. His music is a modern reflection of his faith blending alternative rock with faith-based lyrics. The concert includes the whole family, lights, video, music, and testimonies. A free-will offering will be received to support their ministry. And after the show, we will have hot dogs and snow cones!
