MID-WEEK COMMUNICATION
I think we can all agree that we are going through the oddest of times! Our communication and connection is not as good as it could be.  As the months keep rolling by, with no clear end in sight, we are struggling, not just individually, but collectively as a body of Faith.

Our adult small groups, Sunday school classes, and Bible studies aren't meeting. Children & Youth are having to amend programming and be very innovative to keep their ministries active. We have many of our members who are staying at home, with good reason, watching the live stream of our worship services. We support these actions fully but we miss everybody! Being apart, separate, isn't how we were created. We were created for community. 

 We have started this Mid-Week publication in hopes of being more intentional about staying connected to each other during this time of separation. We have announcements that are not effectively being communicated and without a bulletin every week, how do we know whats going on?. We have people who need our prayers and without our printed prayer list every week, how do we know what and for whom to pray? We have families that have lost loved ones and without our connections, how can we know to be there for them? 

Each Wednesday, we will send out this "Mid-Week". It will have a few announcements to keep you informed, and the current prayer list. We hope this helps!! We look forward to being together again in the near future.

We are still the church. If you have any need, please reach out to us and we will do all in our power to be there for you in whatever way you need.
 
If you have any information or prayer concerns you would like added please contact Rachelle at the church office:

With the current mandate from Governor Ivey and the state of Alabama, masks will now be required in worship beginning this Sunday, July 19th.

Please bring your masks with you.
