As we continue to celebrate our 150th anniversary during 2024, there will be a special event at the church this year instead of at a shed. We are still firming up plans, but thoughts are having the chicken dinner in the pavilion and the park, perhaps followed by some games for the kids and adults. There is even rumor of a parade through Flatville with golf carts, maybe bicycles or even an old car or truck! More details later, but plan to come!

  • Dress is casual this Sunday service! Bib overalls, shorts, jeans, your favorite sports team jersey... etc.!!
  • Encourage non-members to attend with you!
  • You are encouraged to drive to church in your golf cart, side-by-side, gator, old time vehicle, jeep, or any vehicle you have!!
  • Tables and chairs will be at the pavilion, but feel free to also bring lawn chairs if you prefer to sit outside.
  • Feel free to bring your own cooler of your preferred beverages. Bottled water will be provided.

Cost per person will be $15. (Children under 5 are free)

We are requesting payment in advance. Please return the bottom portion of the flyer linked above with payment by July 22 to reserve your meal.
