Missional Networking

Special community-focused services

Blooming Glen

Details: Following Vacation Bible School week, we invite community families to join us for worship which includes a Bible School program and fellowship time following the service. The families are also invited to attend future events such as the fall Harvest festival and Christmas Eve service. Each summer we have our youth baptism service in the local park. In addition, we have two outdoor services in our pavilion with a picnic meal following to encourage our members to invite friends and neighbors. Each fall we host a Harvest Festival and invite the community to attend. Each winter our "farmhouse" is used by Interfaith Hospitality Network to lodge homeless families. One of the two months Blooming Glen is also responsible to provide transportation, overnight hosts, and the evening meal.  Currently, the house is being renovated to be used for short term transitional housing in our community. We have also used the home to shelter persons coming from other countries as we assist them in resettling in the community. These friendships and support continue beyond their stay in our house. We have a task force working on additional ways to bless and serve the local community.
