WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY 6:30-8:00pm at Missy K's home.  Please bring a lawn chair and be prepared to discuss week 3 on August 5.

PRESCHOOL AGE CHILDCARE Would you be willing to occasionally provide care for our Maple Grove children ages 1-3 on Sunday mornings during the 10:00am worship service? This would give our young parents some opportunities to listen without distraction like the rest of us enjoy. If just 20-24 folks would sign up, turns would only be twice a year. Men, women and youth over age 12 are all needed. If you are willing, please sign up at the Welcome Center or see Megan C.
