The Church Family Picnic – Rain or Shine – will be on Sunday July 9th – 11:30 AM – 2 PM (after Worship) at the Lake Estes Marina Covered Shelter off Hwy 34. No vehicle permit is necessary. Please park on north side of pavilion,  just beyond the concrete block wall. Hot dogs, buns, condiments and paper supplies will be provided, but you’ll need to bring your own soft drinks. Water will also be provided. Please bring a side dish, salad or dessert to feed 8-10 people. Dress casually for church and bring your food so you can go directly to the picnic from church. There’s no charge, but donations will be accepted as we have to rent the pavilion!
