Women’s Ministry Ice Cream SocialCHANGE OF LOCATION

The Women’s Ministry Ice Cream Social on Friday, July 21st, has changed locations due to the protectiveness of the Cooper Hawks for their babies living in the trees of The Grove. We have moved farther east on the Patio (inside corner area) and the grassy area east of the building (close to the volleyball courts). So, park in the east parking lot so you are closer and not walking past The Grove. If you have not registered, there is still time! The Women’s Ministry Council invites you to a “Mary Moments” event Friday, July 21, from 6-8pm. Ladies ages 18-120 years old are welcome! Bring your gal pals, neighbors, and/or kiddos. Celebrate summer with inspiration, fellowship, games, volleyball and…ice cream! Please bring a brown-bag dinner, chairs, and/or blankets. We will supply ice cream, toppings, drinks, and games. There is no cost to attend this event. Registration is requested by July 17 to ensure we have plenty of ice cream for everyone. Register online at, contact, 858-8696, or visit us in the Fellowship Mall this Sunday, July 16. We look forward to seeing you there!
