The event has become well known in the valley for the outstanding, unique, handcrafted items... from people like YOU! If you are a local artist who creates one-of-a-kind items and would like to participate in this event, email Kim. Booths are expected to sell out FAST, so be prepared! Applications will be ready the first week of August! 

Church on the Field!

Join us as we celebrate the culmination of our Garden City summer events this year with Church on the Field on August 20th. It will be the Sunday after our last movie night, and we’ll have one big service together on the field. We will also be inviting all our neighbors to join us that day. There will be lots of service opportunities, as well as baptism pools on the field for those who want to be baptized. As always, it will be a great time together with worship, teaching, food and celebrating the end of summer. Watch for more information to come!
