NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. — Get Connected Sunday will take place Sept. 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Nellis Family Housing Community Center.

Get Connected Sunday is our way of reaching up, reaching in, and reaching out to care for the Airman’s soul. In addition, we are connecting active-duty Airmen and their families to the chapel, as chaplains seek to help in establishing and maintaining a resilient Spiritual Life.

The Third Annual Get Connected Sunday is an opportunity for Nellis, Creech, NTTR Airmen and their families to come and discover how they can get involved in the chapel community and bolster their spiritual fitness.
Join us for a free catered lunch and live music. There will also be activities for children including bouncy houses, games, snow cones, cotton candy and face painting.

Come and learn about men’s, women’s, youth and children’s programs that will be offered starting this Sunday.

This year, the event will kick off at 10 a.m. with a short Protestant worship service led by a newly established worship team and a spiritual message by the new 99thAir Base Wing, Wing Chaplain, Lt. Col. Michael Rash.

For more information contact the Base Chapel 652-2950.
