Meet the Goodpeople!

Join Pastor Sharon Beattie and others beginning June 15 at 9:30 a.m. to study this book together. Meet the Goodpeople...We all know them.  Friends, family, neighbors and acquaintances, who have never committed a crime, don't kick their dog, and don't know God.  On the outside everything in their life is OK.  So how do we accompany these persons in their life journey and help them to know a personal God, who loves and cares for them and whose recognized presence in their lives can equip them to deal with all life will throw at them? 

This five week study will provide an opportunity for conversation around the book, Meet the Goodpeople, each Thursday morning at 9:30.  Books are available in the church office.  Call Pastor Sharon if you have questions at 614-301-9995.

Take Flat Jimmy on vacation this Summer!

Take Flat Jimmy to Dinner or on Vacation this summer!

Let’s have some fun together and raise some money toward the new kitchen appliances at the same time! Get creative on where you take one of the “mini Jimmies” this summer! 

For a minimum donation of $5, you can have one of our “mini Jimmies” for the summer (or forever, whichever you want) and have an opportunity to get a picture taken with him on your vacation or at your dinner table right here in Westerville  – be creative!  Email your picture to Pastor Kathy by September 30. We’ll make a video with all the places Flat Jimmy traveled this summer – and raise some money for a great cause. You can get one of these mini Jimmies on Sunday mornings at the Welcome Center or during the week from Pastor Kathy.
