Weekend Update 1.19.23

On every 5th Sunday, starting with this Sunday, we will be having one combined service at 10:30a and we will observe the Lord’s Supper. As a reminder, there will be no morning groups on that Sunday, as we look forward to worshipping with you and your family, together! Lunch will also be provided in the Fellowship Hall, following the service. All families are asked to provide a pre-cut dessert to share. We will also have an area set up in the Worship Lobby to drop off the dessert, prior to service. To get an accurate head count for food we are asking that you RSVP here if you plan on attending the lunch..

Group Updates

Meet in the Middle (New Group)

Come have some fun and meet some new friends. Join us for a game night on Friday, Jan 27 at 7pm – 9pm. We will be playing some new games and some old favorites as well. Park in the back parking lot and come in the church office entrance. Grab some dinner before you come and we will meet in the conference room. Open to all adults – but we maybe rockin’ with some 70’s and 80’s music.

Lottie Moon

Each year around Christmas we collect funds to support over 3,600 missionaries who serve in foreign countries through the International Mission Board (IMB). Our goal for this year is $70,000 of which we’ve collected over $63,000.

There is still time to give! So, if you haven’t done so yet, you can give online by going to our website and clicking the “Give” tab, or by clicking here. Next, select “Lottie Moon” in the drop down menu and follow the prompts from there.

You can also place your gift in any of the wooden collection boxes around the worship center. Thank you for helping us reach the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
