Sunday Services

Children’s Day will be celebrated on Sunday, June 3. (We will celebrate communion on June 10) The children will take part in the worship service. Following church we will have our church family picnic on the Lincoln Sports Field. The Christian Ed Board will provide hot dogs, beverage and dessert. Please bring something to share, lawn chairs and a favorite lawn game if you like. We hope to see you all there!

~~Monthly movie night...1st Friday night of each month at 6:30 pm. Beginning this month we will take a break for summer, but hope to show one outdoor movie at some point, so stay tuned! Thank you to all who attended, and all who helped!

Popcorn, cookies and beverages provided. All ages welcome!

~~Muffin Tuesday....we continue to welcome Mt. Abe kids in as they wait for the bus...the muffins, doughnuts, juice and hot chocolate have been enjoyed by many. Thank you to everyone that is pitching in to help. What a great outreach to local teens!

Lorraine’s class would also like to remind folks to bring in their can tabs for the Ronald McDonald House and your pennies for Pennies From Heaven. The empty buckets are waiting!

Music Ministry

Rehearsals will be at 6:45 p.m. most Thursdays. We are looking to expand the music ministry to include solos or other musical offering from those who are not interested in the full-time commitment of being in the choir, but would like to occasionally share their musical gift. However, if you would like to take a seat up front, we always welcome new folks. 

In Fellowship

- Tuesday morning play group will be meeting. Contact the church office for details.

- On Thursday mornings the seniors gather for a mean game of cards. You don’t know what you’re missing – lots of laughs, food and fun.

In Learning

Annie Svitavsky and Mary Benton are starting a multi-generational women’s book group. We would like to invite any woman who cares to join. The group will meet at 7pm on the 2nd, 4th and 5th Wednesdays at the Benton’s home starting May 9th. Our first book will be Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith by Sarah Bessey (2015) Available on Amazon new $12.10 & used $4.00 also on kindle & Audible! Grab whichever format you prefer and join us for an evening of laughter and meaningful conversation! All welcome!! 

Men Under Construction

Way back in 1996 a group of men from the five towns rode the bus down to our nation’s capitol to join one million other men in the Promise Keepers conference, “Men of Integrity”. So rich and moving was this experience that we decided to continue meeting here at home, and have done so for the past sixteen years. Our current gathering spot is The River, location of the Bristol Christian Fellowship. Meeting at 7 a.m. followed by breakfast at Snap’s, our format is patterned after the “KISS” (keep it simple, stupid) slogan of Alcoholics Anonymous – gather, get coffee, pray, read a book or the Bible, discuss, pray, adjourn. Currently we are earnestly engaged in a Bible study on some aspects of the life of David the King. All men are welcome!!

The only criteria for participation are a desire to mature in your relationship with Jesus and to discover how to serve Him in church and community.
So come on down! We can always squeeze in one more seat!
