Hoffmantown’s Round Up

Church Family, our annual “Round Up” gives us all a special time to gather and fellowship as a church family! It also provides us with a great opportunity to invite someone we have been praying for and talking to into our Worship Service and Sunday School to hear the “Good News.” Do not forget to wear some of that great Western apparel that you cannot wait to put on and let us have some fun! Come join us and “Be a Bringer” especially on September 10th, into our Worship Service and Sunday School, concluding with a wonderful Picnic of Fellowship and Food starting at 5pm.

This Year’s Picnic (5-7pm, in The Grove, east of Hoffmantown) is featuring:

•              Fried chicken

•              Kona Ice Truck

•              Western Photo Booth… get a picture of your family in the Wild West!

•              Live instrumental music

•              Minute to Win It Games with Dane

•              Our third annual car show

It would great for those who have vintage / show cars to bring them for the Fall Round-Up Picnic. These cars were a real treat for all to see last year, so come join in the fun this year and bring your nice ride. If interested, please let us know at so that we can plan accordingly. Bring your vintage cars to the east gate of Hoffmantown’s parking lot and follow the signs!

What to bring:

•              Blanket and lawn chairs if you would like (we will have tables set up)

•              Games to play
