We will wind up our series of Confirmation this month. Throughout the summer we have explored the fundamentals of our faith. Understanding and being able to name our core beliefs is part of our pathway to deeper discipleship. As we seek to become more Christ-like, let’s finish this series strong as we wrestle with the critical issues.


All are invited to attend an outdoor service on Sunday, August 9 at 11:15. Enjoy the beauty of God’s creation in this service. If you would like to be baptized or remember your
baptism by immersion in the pool, please contact Pastor Alecia. This is a service everyone from any service is welcome to attend. A meal is following the service, with beef tenderloin or chicken breast as the meat. Tableware and beverages will be provided. If you would like to bring a side dish, you are welcome. Bring your swimsuit if you would like to join in the fun after lunch. Please RSVP by calling the church office and let us know how many in your household will be attending. The 8:00 and 9:45 services will be held at the church as normal. The outdoor service will be held at the home of Dan and Rhonda Bernacki, 2198 Hendershot Rd. NE in North Liberty. If you would like to carpool, be in the south parking lot at 11:00 am on Sunday, August 9.


While we are out of time to begin construction this summer, we are continuing to work towards that day. A 2015 build simply is not possible; however, we are continuing to work with the architects, the engineers, the city of North Liberty and our financial commitments. Watch for more details.
