Church at the Lake!

Since it's the World Cup this year, our awesome hosts at the New Parkway aren't able to rent the space for us on Sunday July 15th.  So instead of trying to find another venue for 1 Sunday, we thought it wold be fun to enjoy the beauty of Oakland by doing church at the Lake!  It will be picnic style, acoustic, and super fun.  Who knows, maybe this will become an annual tradition?
