Not Currently meeting ON SUNDAYS due to covid-19 BUT THERE ARE OTHER ACTIVITIES (See below)

  • FAMILY FRIDAY FOOD (MONTHLY)

    First Friday of each month

    (register by the Tuesday before)


    We know that this is a challenging time for many families with this school year having remote learning. We would like to take a little bit off of your plate. The first Friday of every month we will have a FREE, warm meal for families with kids 0-5th grade to pick up at church. We cannot accommodate all food allergies but all meals will be peanut free. 


    There will be sign ups going out ahead of time in our TruKids newsletter so keep your eyes open for the link to register. If you do not on our mailing list for that newsletter, please contact Carrie HERE. Registration must be done by the Tuesday prior the pickup.
