Canoe Trip & Cookout CANCELLED

This weekend’s fellowship event at Pinicon Ridge Park has been cancelled due to high water in the Wapsipinicon. Those who have already paid the rental fee for a canoe will have their check returned.

Fellowship Canoe Trip & Cookout 7/29/17

Join in on the fun at Flying Squirrel Shelter in Pinicon Ridge Park on Saturday afternoon, July 29. Please register in advance at the gathering space table so we know how much to buy for the picnic. The last day you can reserve canoes will be July 24th.

Please note that Flying Squirrel is NOT where we met in years past. Flying Squirrel Shelter is on the EAST SIDE of the Wapsi River. Enter the park at the north entrance (Valley Farm Rd.).

Fellowship: You can come anytime during the afternoon for snacks, horseshoes, games, hiking, sand volleyball, playground for the kids, etc. Paddle boats and canoes may be rented in the park for $10/ hour plus $1 for life jackets ~ OR ~ you can just sit in the shade and enjoy the fellowship!

2:30 pm – Cookout: The Fellowship Team will provide hot dogs, chicken breasts, buns, condiments, lemonade, and water. Please bring a dish to share with others and table service for yourself.

Noon – Canoe Pick-up: Those taking the canoe trip must meet at rental office for paperwork and safety instruction. Canoe rental is $25/day, including life jackets. A shuttle will take canoe renters to the river. If you have your own canoe or kayak, you may park at Paris Bridge and put your boat in. If there is no parking, you may drive back to the shelter and park there. There will be a shuttle available to take you to the launch site. (Ages 16 and up may rent canoes themselves; those under 16 must have a parent sign a waiver at the rental office.)

1:00-3:00 pm – Canoe Trip: Canoers should bring a ziploc bag for your phone & keys, life vests, and a water bottle.

Other items you might want to bring: Lawn chairs, sunscreen, lawn games and/or volleyballs.

Canoe Trip & Cookout are both alcohol-free events.

Outdoor Worship at LCR

Combined Outdoor Worship Service will be held on Sunday, July 9 at 10:15 am. Resurrection is holding a special festival of music, followed by a potluck. Worship will be led by the With Faith & Evening Song worship teams, with additional music from the Older Hymns, Galileans, and EDGE Youth Band. Bring your own lawn chairs; those who prefer not to sit outside are still welcome to listen from seats in the fellowship hall. For the potluck, please bring a main dish, side dish, salad, or dessert to share AND a non-perishable food item for Mission of Hope. Fellowship Time will be held at 9:15 as usual for those who wish to come and visit ahead of the outdoor service.

Ways you can help Outdoor Worship on July 9th: bring pop-up tents to provide shaded seating areas for the service; come about 8 am to help set up for the service. Mark on your welcome card if you can assist in either way, or contact the church office at 377-4689. Thank you!

Popcorn 4 Kids

Our Sunday School kids have been learning about the kids in Malawi who will be attending Camp Chisomo soon. To make this happen, LCR kids are scrimping and saving to donate to the Camp Chisomo fund, which provides bibles for each child and bicycles as they are able. You too can help the Camp Chisomo future become reality by picking up a bag or two of popcorn as you leave worship this Sunday. Go ahead – this is one temptation you should give in to!
