This week @ The Place

Join us this Sabbath as we gather to worship and praise our redeemer. This Sabbath we conclude our summer series, This Changes Everything, which have been led by different youth each week. This week Matthew Negley along with Pastor Simon will share a sermon titled "Seeing The Risen Jesus" based on Romans 20:24-31. We look forward to having Robin Shea lead us in praise and worship; to special music by Camila and Giovanna Burgos as we say good-bye to their family this Sabbath; and to welcoming David Smith into membership following his baptism this Friday night. 

 

 

Financial Support for the Mission of The Place 

We appreciate your faithfulness and love and look forward to many more blessings in Jesus in 2018. Our monthly budget is just over $20,000 and we invite your faithful support. We invite your online at www.theplacechurch.com with no fees involved.

Beach Vespers and baptism THIS Friday, August 17th

All are invited to Beach Vespers THIS Friday evening, August 17th.  Our evening together will begin at 6 p.m. @ Sycamore Cove. We will be celebrating the baptism of David Smith on this evening.  Hot dogs will be provided, please bring a salad, side dish, and/or dessert to share.  We will have a wonderful night of worship, dinner, and fellowship.  

 

 

Farewell Luncheon THIS Sabbath & loading party for the Burgos 

This Sabbath, August 18th, we have the sad duty of saying good-bye to the Burgos family as they move away. After church, we will have a potluck luncheon in honor of them and the fellowship we have enjoyed with them for 12+ years!  The luncheon will be held in Suite 16 after church services.  Please bring food to share. Then, for those who are available to help them load boxes, there will be a loading party that evening at their place beginning at 6:30 p.m.  Please bless them by loading up the u-haul so they can leave bright and early on Sunday morning.  They live at 791 Dearborn Ave in N.P.
