Grief support group: A grief support group meets first Wednesdays of each month from 10-11 AM in the fireside room.  This group is open to anyone in the church or community who is experiencing grief.  Facilitated by Dr. Don Harr, this group will provide support, encouragement, and help to those facing grief.  All are welcome.

Time & Talent Fair was wonderful.  Thanks to all who donated and purchased items at our annual Time and Talent Fair on Sunday, November 10.  Over $2,500 was raised for Habitat for Humanity from this special event.

Community Block Party Appreciation:  Thanks to the many people who made our annual community block party in August a great success.  About 300 people attended and enjoyed a great evening of free food, large inflatable games for the kids, music, and fun.  We plan to make this an annual event so your help next summer in making this an even bigger and better event would be greatly appreciated.

One Great Hour of Sharing Offering was Huge!!  Thanks to all who participated in our One Great Hour of Sharing fishing derby.  This year's goal was to collect 200 pounds of fish.  No only did we meet our goal, we shattered it as 415 lbs. of fish were returned. WOW!! The amount of coins inside the fish totaled $3,200.  Our church's mission committee added this amount, bringing our total offering to over $5,000.  This money will go to help those in need.  Thanks to your generous support of this special offering that is received every Easter.

Growing in the Spirit: Women's Retreat was a great success. On Saturday, April 20, 33 women met at Eagle Rock Sanctuary for a day long retreat.  The Retreat "Growing in the Spirit" was led by Rev. Marcia Muir, former member of First Presbyterian Church, Billings. She is now serving a church in Yuma, Colorado.  The ladies enjoyed a time of learning about the Holy Spirit, and then shared their ideas with words about the Holy spirit on a vine covered with leaves and flowers. The visual demonstration was quite colorful and effective. The Holy Spirit was alive and well in the midst of this time together.

Summer 2012 Mission Trip to Belize, Central America was incredible!
26 youth and adults from our congregation traveled to Belize and built a home for a very poor family.  It was a life changing experience as we were able to share with others the love and grace of Jesus Christ.  Thanks to many who supported this trip, both prayerfully and financially.  The mission team will be sharing of their Belize trip during worship on Sunday, August 12 at 9:30 AM.
