Some requirements are:

  1. We will pay up to $100 towards a utility bill
  2. Bill must be in the name of the person that attends church with ID verifying they live at that household
  3. Person must not attend another church
  4. Bill must be brought in on the 21st for a payment to be issued

Our Connection Team brings you a couple new opportunities:

Softball:  Looks like there are enough players for the men’s team. If any of you know a player who wants to sign up, we will finalize our roster this Sunday May 7th. There may be room for about four more.

IMPORTANT: We need to collect $45, cash preferred, from each player by Sunday in order to register the team. The league is expected to fill quickly so we will be standing in line Monday morning to turn our money in.

There are 8 single header games, played on Sun with start times from 330pm until last game starting at either 645 or 715 in Everett. Cost per player $45 due Sunday May 7th when roster is finalized.

Games been in June following the conclusion of the spring games. Thanks! Janelle and/or Jordan Harris Questions email, text or call.
