ROCK Youth SkyZone Outing Sunday

    The ROCK Youth SkyZone Outing: This Sunday afternoon, the youth will be leaving at 1:00 pm for SkyZone. Youth should bring $5 to help cover costs. We ask that if your child (7-12th grade) is interested in going, that you bring the signed permission slip to participate. This is a SkyZone policy. Click here for a SkyZone permission slip.  Permission Slips will also be available on Sunday and can also can be found on the SkyZone website.

    The youth will leave SkyZone around 3:00 and be back in Ames around 4:00. Youth will be dropped off at home. If you have any questions, please contact Ben Johnson at 290-4243 or benjaminandrewjohnson@gmail.com.

Thanksgiving Pie Fellowship

    “What is a Thanksgiving Pie Fellowship, and where can I get mine?” you ask.  You have come to the right place! On Wednesday, November 26, we will have a worship service at 7 pm and a time of pie fellowship following the service. If you last name begins with a letter A-M, please bring a pie to share. (And no, pie throwing is not a part of this otherwise fun activity.)
