Friday, August 13 at 7:00PM



6:20PM: Well, it's raining. But it is OK!
We are still going to have a great time.
We’re still on for tonight!! We can’t wait to celebrate with you.
Inflatables have moved inside (younger kids’ inflatables are in the North Venue and inflatables for the older kids are in the Central Venue).

Lots of ice cream treats and water ready to go! The rain will move out soon.
We really hope to see you at 7PM (or after the rain ends - which ever comes first). 

2:30PM: No need to worry!
We are still planning to hold our fireworks event this evening.
We will still begin at 7PM. We will possibly move the kids inflatables inside (North Venue area), but that will be the only real change to the plan. The building will be open in case we need to dodge a few rain drops.


Join us for a night of celebrating! Enjoy frozen treats, kids inflatables, fellowship, and fireworks, too!
We will have BOUNCE HOUSES for the kids and a Corn Hole Tourney throughout the evening!

You'll have the opportunity to drop off notes and cards for Pastor John and Jan, as well as an opportunity to thank them in person. 

What to bring and where?
Our Main Parking Lot is where the party's at!
Bring some chairs and blankets to sit on.
Bring some food to eat if you would like to.
We'll provide the water and frozen treats!

General parking will be available in the North Parking Lot.
Senior Adult and Handicap parking will be available in our Chapel lot.
