  • Peak Challenge – is an annual opportunity for men, their sons, fathers and brothers to get away from the everyday routines of life and experience all that God has for them in the wild setting of the Colorado Rockies. This is not a ‘retreat’ but rather an advance of men who seek to experience God in a way that will resonate deep within their souls. Men and young men are challenged physically while hiking 14,000 foot peaks, biking, trail running and white-water rafting. More importantly, men are challenged spiritually to engage in the battle like never before as they see what is at stake. The 2017 Peak Challenge dates are August 3-7. Spots are limited, please register at peakchallenge.net today.
  • 55 & Better – Join us Tuesday May 9 at 10:30am for a trip back in time! Historical re-enactor Darrel Draper will portray Theodore Roosevelt in a unique “costumed” program. Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) was the 26th President of the United States. Better known as “Teddy,” he was famous for his larger than life personality and achievements his range of interests, his model of masculinity, and his “cowboy” image. Roosevelt’s achievements as a naturalist, explorer, hunter, author, and soldier are as much a part of his fame as the many political offices he held. Lunch is provided by Don and Joan Havekost. Please RSVP to 402.773.7021 so we have numbers for lunch.
