Sunday Night LIVE! 29th Birthday is May 15!

Join us at 7:00 PM on May 15 for the 29th anniversary of Sunday Night LIVE! The Fairmont Gospel Revue will be there and as Steve Hickle suggests, there are two reasons to come:
1. If you’ve ever been
2. If you’ve never been
...and a third reason, it’s more fun than anybody ought to be allowed to have in church!

May 15 Mission Lunch for Pastor Discretionary Fund

All are invited to join us for the last planned mission lunch before we take our summer break! Lunch will be under the oaks, weather permitting!

Click here to signup to help, and since this is the last big scheduled luncheon for the year, we won't even ask you to RSVP to eat, because we are planning for EVERYONE.

All lunches will have a gluten free and vegetarian option.

Come and Take a Hike with Us!

We took April off, but join us for another church hike on Saturday, May 21, at 2 pm at Lake Johnson! All ages are welcome - bring a friend or just yourself and get to know some new friends. We will meet at the main entrance at 2 pm.

Welcome to our New Staff Member!

The Staff-Parish Relations Committee is pleased to announce the hiring of Ava Darden for the position of Children and Youth Program Coordinator! She brings great energy and enthusiasm to our program. Perhaps you have already seen her during the two Wesley Sundays this year when she led the children’s time during the service.

Ava will be leading Children’s Church and various other children’s activities including Camp #Live Differently later in the year. In addition, she will be working with and building our Youth Ministries programs.

She is a Junior at NC State and will be joining us in May once finals are completed.
