Come & Celebrate! One Year Anniversary
One year ago, on May 31, 2016, we officially took possession of our Outreach Center located at 3602 16th Street.  
On the weekend of June 24 & 25, we will be celebrating the *One Year* Anniversary by celebrating in all worship services the programs and ministries that have been a part of our Outreach Center including: quilters, youth programs, APATT Backpack Program, Cup of Grace, NAMI (Nat’l Alliance on Mental Illness), Red Cross Blood Drives, Prayer & Healing services and Craft Club. Ignite, alternative praise gathering, started on Sunday, September 25, 2016, following the dedication of the building. It continues to meet at 6:00 p.m.every Sunday evening, led by Rev. Seong Lee.
For the past year, we have celebrated the addition of the following community & church related programs:  Driver’s Education, a 4-H Robotics group, Kids Korner, two Destination Imagination groups and Crisis Navigators.  In addition, many special events have taken place including private holiday gatherings, Rescue Mission Women’s Brunch, piano try-outs, a piano recital and graduation parties.  
Last June, church family members were cleaning, scrubbing, painting, organizing & moving into the facility to serve as our Outreach Center. Please join us for birthday “cupcakes” served in the Gathering Area following worship services June 24th & 25th, and there will also be a special Ignite service to lift up our mission & ministry! Plan to attend one of our four worship services to celebrate how the Spirit has been guiding and leading our congregation and community this past year! 
Our Outreach Center continues to serve as a witness to our faith, hope and love in the Columbus community and area.  Let’s celebrate!
