Tailgating and Picnic in the Parking Lot on September 15
College football season is back! The sounds, sights, smells, and the best part: tailgating. We don’t often think of it but the people of God started out as one great big tailgating party that roamed from place to place for a 40 year season. We are kicking off the new teaching series “Tailgating” with a Tailgating party of our own in the parking lot after the 11:00am service on September 15 .This will be fun for the whole family! Hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy, and inflatables! Be sure to show your support by wearing your team’s jersey or shirt!
