Tour de Toddlers Victory Party
As a thank you for supporting the Tour de Toddlers, you are invited to the victory party on Saturday, July 21 from 3pm to 6pm. We'll welcome the riders home at the end of their trek, have an open house of the facilities, and enjoy live music and a free BBQ while supplies last.
A.S.K. Classes will take a one-week break as we gather to welcome back Nick and Lucy Della Valle. Together, they have visited churches all over the country to share the testimonies of Zacchaeus, the Innkeeper, and Bartimaeus.
We'll gather for dinner at the usual time (5:45 p.m.) for dinner, then witness the story of Blind Bartimaeus (Mark 10:46-52). Don't miss this opportunity to see and hear this eyewitness account of the last earthly days of Christ. Bartimaeus was a human being like you and I, but his encounter with Jesus not only opened his eyes, but it opened his heart. And he was blessed because of it.
If you've never been to A.S.K. before, this is a great opportunity to come check things out...and first time guests eat free!
