Out to Lunch! - Yankee Hill Village

Wednesday, June 14, 12-1:30PM at Yankee Hill Village, 8401 S 33rd St.

Our friends at Yankee Hill Village, just up the street, are offering their warm hospitality while our gathering space is used for Vacation Bible School in June. Their chef will be preparing special boxed lunches for us to enjoy in their beautiful activities area, reserved just for us. The location is ideal as it’s close to Southwood and parking is convenient.

Food! We all love it, but how much do we truly know about the food we eat? Don’t miss this fun opportunity to learn about traffic light eating, making healthy food choices, and why those choices impact how we feel throughout the day.

Register by June 8 to receive a boxed lunch! The cost is $10. Pay at the event with cash or check.

Small Groups

Small Groups are 2-20 people who gather to build a community of faith. They meet in homes, outside, online, in coffee shops or they reserve space at the church. Some groups meet for several weeks a few times per year while others meet year-round. Some choose topical studies, others do Bible studies and some simply share life. Most importantly, Small Groups create a sense of belonging, helping a large church feel like a small church.

No commitment is required to join a group. Small Groups appearing on Group Finder are those that have room for more participants. You’re welcome to try out various groups to find the right fit for you.
