Legacy: Living Beyond Ourselves

Congregational “Family Legacy”  Weekend

Our Family weekend is approaching fast! We hope that you have made plans to attend the sessions on Friday, August 30th at 7:00 pm, here at the building.

Our speakers Lonnie Jones & Ben Hayes, are both relevant, qualified and sought after speakers. Our theme for this weekend is “Legacy: Living Beyond Ourselves”.

Saturday, August 31  at 11:00 am  we will have our congregational picnic at Westminster Park (Rock Hill), be prepared to enjoy a little friendly game competition with ultimate Frisbee, an old fashioned kick ball game, and other game opportunities. We will have a ‘photo booth’ set up, so you can take a family photo (probably long overdue!)

We will have a cook out with burgers & hot dogs & Pelican’s snow balls will be there from 12:30 –1:30. We will hear two more lessons from Ben & Lonnie.

Sunday, September 1 we will conclude our weekend worshiping our God. Ben Hayes will teach a combined middle/High school class and Lonnie Jones will teach our adult class. Our worship service will be shared by both speakers.
