We have an amazing opportunity to partner with South County Outreach and meet a big need this month! The game plan for September is to bring non-perishables that you would find in a child’s sack lunch. Let’s fill the bins located throughout the lobby with items like granola bars, fruit cups, and juice boxes. See the flyer included in the program for a shopping list.
Join our TerraNova Team as we provide dinner for Orange County Rescue Mission's "Village of Hope." We serve on the 3rd Saturday of every month. Come on out and serve for all or part of the day and help us to make God's Love Famous in Orange County. To become part of the team, contact Marty Henahan.

There may be no more appropriate way to begin a new year and take the next step in your spiritual journey than baptism! The imagery and meaning of baptism is all about the end of the old, the beginning of the new -- the death and burial of our old life with Christ in the after, the resurrection of a God-given new life coming out of the water. How great is that?! And if you haven't been baptized as a follower of Jesus, this is a perfect next step in growing your faith!
We've got baptisms scheduled for Sunday, September 1. Sign up today! We'd love for you to take this next step in your journey!

Be sure to send your kids hungry because we'll be serving them free Chick-fil-A during the service! This is the perfect night to invite a family to join you at TerraNova - the kids will have a blast and the adults will enjoy the kickoff of our new series, "Keeping it Together." We hope you'll make plans to join us and be thinking about who you'll bring with you. We can't wait to see you there!
