Weekly Prayer Meeting – Time Change to 9am

Please join us on Sunday mornings at 9am in Chuck’s office as we come before God in prayer. Everyone is welcome and we changed to time to try to accommodate more of the congregation. Whether you like to stand, knell or sit; shout, whisper, or pray silently, we want you to join us. Feel like you’re not that good at praying or don’t like praying in a group? Join us anyways! The best way to learn and grow is by watching and hearing others and journeying together, and we won’t pressure you to do anything you’re not comfortable doing. We hope to see you this Sunday at 9am!

Have a prayer request? We pray for a large variety of personal and corporate issues each Sunday morning, and throughout the week. If you have something you’d like us to pray about, bring your request to the group on a Sunday morning, or click here to email us your request.

Women’s Prayer Retreat

Join us July 17-18 for a weekend retreat to reconnect with God through scripture and guided prayer, followed by a time of personal and group reflection. Whether you’re a prayer warrior or new to praying, you are welcome to join us as we learn to talk to God together. We’ll leave the church around 5:30pm on Friday, July 17 and return around 5:30pm on Saturday, July 18. The cost is only $20 per person. (Please bring some additional money to eat lunch out on Saturday.) We have only 6 more open slots, so please, sign up soon if you’re interested! Email Julia Moore with any questions or for more information.

Welcome Luncheon

Sunday, July 12, after the morning service there will be a welcome luncheon. If you are new to SP, have questions about who we are as a church or would like to meet the staff, we’d love to have you join us. The sign up sheet is available in the foyer.

School Supplies Needed!

Each year as supply lists from schools begin arriving in parents’ mailboxes, many parents (particularly those with low incomes or multiple kids) wonder how they’ll afford the supplies. Porch Steps would like to bless our clients again this year with backpacks of school supplies. So, grab a couple apples off the tree in the foyer, pick up some extra supplies as you shop and be a blessing to these families in need.

Wednesday’s @ IGNITE

The Youth Building will be open on Wednesday afternoons from 1-4 throughout the Summer, starting on July 8th. Anyone going into Jr High or High School next year is welcome to join us for video games, board games, or to just hang out, chill and enjoy the company!

Men’s Golf Outing 

Men, join us on Sunday, July 12th at 5pm for a 9-hole scramble at Palmer Park in Wyoming. Cost is $22/person with a cart, or $15/person to walk. Signup is available in the foyer, deadline to signup is THIS SUNDAY, July 5th. If you have questions, click here to email Derek Peuler.

Thank You Ushers!

You see them for 3 minutes every Sunday morning as they pass the plates down the aisles. What you don’t see is everything else they do behind the scenes on a Sunday morning, whether it’s counting the attendance in the auditorium and kid’s areas, or counting the offering and preparing the bank deposit. These are all unsung, but vital parts of running the church. The next time you see one of the ushers, take a second and tell them, “Thank you!” for all they do!

Euchre Fellowship

Save the date! Our next Euchre Fellowship is July 25. It is such a great opportunity to get to know others in the church, to bring friends and just to hang out and have a good time. We hope to see you there!

Fall Men’s Retreat

It’s time to start thinking about Fall already! Our Fall Men’s Retreat will be Oct 24-25 at Grace Adventures. Signups are available in the foyer now. Signup by Sept 15, a $20 deposit is due when you signup. The total cost for the weekend is $70. Don’t miss it, you’ll regret it!
