We will be observing communion during the morning worship service on September 23. This will be a special time of our reflecting on the price that Jesus paid for our salvation. Plan to come and join us for a special sermon entitled, “Table of the Lord.”
REGULAR WEEKLY OR MONTHLY EVENTS:
Our nursery is more than a babysitting room. The gospel is taught to the children in an age appropriate way through stories and songs. It is located down the long hallway and is available for children from birth—5 years. You can bring your child back anytime after 9:30 a.m. (The cry room is also available for those who would like to stay with their child.)
Pastor will pray for and dismiss the children to go to Children’s Church after the praise and worship part of the service. Children's Church is for children
beginning at age 4 years.
Today's Children's Church teachers are Jeremy & Manda Harris.
For our children's safety, no child under the age of 18 should be allowed to be out of the sanctuary unless they are with an adult or in Children’s Church/Nursery. Also, children are not allowed in the Cry Room without an adult.
Weekly Prayer Meeting
The church doors are open every Monday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. for you to come and pray at your own pace and in your own way. Prayer requests can be placed in the prayer box located at the front of the platform. These requests will be kept in the prayer box for six weeks. Remember, if you want your request or praise report printed in the bulletin you HAVE to sign your name and check the “yes” box.
Praying for the Lost
Don’t forget to pray for salvation for the names posted on the “Prayer Wall” in the foyer. If you have someone you would like the church to help you pray for their salvation, write their first name only and place it on the board.
Feeding the Homeless
We are scheduled to provide lunches for the homeless on the 2nd and 4th Mondays. We usually make these lunches on Sundays after the morning worship services. The next date is September 23.
Intercessory Prayer Meeting
You are invited to join our Intercessory Prayer group meeting where we pray corporately over specific needs and then break away to pray individually in our own way. We meet every other Tuesday at noon. Our next meeting is September 11.
Women’s Sewing / Crafting Group
This branch of our Women’s Ministries meets most Tuesdays around 1 p.m. We make items that we give to others (Widows Ministries Center, Crisis Pregnancy Center, homeless shelter, etc.) No experience is necessary! See Jackie Harris for more information. Also, see the calendar on our website or app or call Jackie) to see if we’ve had to reschedule for some reason.

Our Wednesday Bible study will resume THIS WEDNESDAY, September 12, at 7 p.m. as we continue our seven-week series on the Fruit of the Spirit. We will deal with why the Fruit of the Spirit is important to you and how it will help you in every relationship in your life.
Holy Grounds Café
This ministry encourages fellowship as we have refreshments such as coffee, danishes, etc. We meet every Sunday morning in the church cafe, beginning at 9:00 and ending at 10:20, just before our morning worship service.
Men, join us for our next monthly Men’s Breakfast, Sunday, October 7, at 7:30 a.m. Bring a friend with you.
This group, for ages 50 and up, meets monthly, normally, on the 2nd Saturday of the month. Typically, one month we meet at the church for a potluck dinner, and the next month we meet for an outing and/or meet at a restaurant. Our next meeting is scheduled for October 13. For more information see Mike or Penny Stawski.
Prayer Requests/Praise Reports
We understand that not everyone wants to have their prayer request
printed in the bulletin. Therefore, we will usually only publish your
request if it is written out, you have signed your name, and have checked the “yes” box on the prayer request form in the printed bulletin (or have indicated such through digital means).
These requests will only be listed for six weeks. PLEASE update your request if you would like it to remain longer.
