4th Grade Wheat Planting & 

Communion Instruction 

MAY 5 •  10:00 a.m. - Noon


Fourth graders, it’s time for Communion Instruction with Pastor Doug and to literally plant wheat!  For 15 years, the Longnecker’s have prepared a portion of their property for our children to “work.” We gather again in the fall to finish Communion Instruction and harvest, thresh, grind, and bake fresh communion bread which is served during worship. This is such an awesome ministry of Gloria Dei! All fourth graders and parents are welcome! Thanks Dennis and Judith for this opportunity!! Car pooling is available.  Please contact Beth Tobin with any questions and be sure to bring your boots. 


Be sure to wear something that it is okay to get dirty, and don't forget the boots!



The J.A.M. (Jesus And Me) Youth Group is open to all youth in grades 4-6. We're excited for a year of fun, service, and fellowship! Parent volunteers are always needed and appreciated! Link:

For more information or to chaperone, please contact Beth Tobin. And please RSVP to Beth so we are sure to have enough rides.
