News & Updates

Conversations Starts Tonight, January 22nd!

Come and join us Wednesday nights for Conversations! We will have a church wide meal at 6:00 PM. The adults will begin a new series called, “Longing for Heaven.” As believers we are citizens of heaven, but do we know what heaven will actually be like? Sadly, most of what is spoken about heaven in our culture is inaccurate which leaves many Christians with wrong misconceptions and beliefs about heaven. So our goal in this series is to discover the biblical picture of what heaven is like and why it is a place we should desperately long for. Teaching and discussion for adults will take place from 6:45 – 7:45 PM. There will also be programs for students and children that go from 6:30 – 7:45 PM. We hope to see you there!

Service Opportunities & Donations  

Gashland Elementary Drive

School absence due to illness has a huge impact on student learning. We are going to help kids stay healthy this winter by restocking Gashland Elementary’s supply of hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and tissue paper. We will be accepting donations in the lobby between services January 26th and February 2nd.

January Mission Collection for Rachel House

We will be collecting for Rachel House, Baby Wipes, Neutral Colored Onesies, and $5.00 QT (Quik Trip) Gift Cards. The Gift Cards will be gifted to moms and dads upon their first visit with Rachel House. Joyce Grady will be in the Lobby by the office after first service and downstairs in the Ministry Center Lobby before and after 2nd Service on Sunday, January 26th to collect the QT Cards and any other item(s) that you wish to drop off. The donations (except the Gift Cards) during the week can also be put in the Mission Collection Box on the 2nd Floor across from the Mission Board by the Chapel. Thank You and God Bless!
