  • I want to say Thank You to everyone that worked on our 20th year Celebration that did not happen. I do appreciate all that was done even though we needed to cancel. The desire is to regroup and do a picnic potluck in the next couple weeks. More on that later.
  • Most of you know that I got Covid last week. First, Thank you for all the prayers. I am doing well. I was only really off my feet for a day or so. I believe that our vitamin cocktail of  (C, D, and Zinc) may have helped. I also was able to quickly get connected with a group that provided a plan and prescriptions that also seem to have really helped. I am symptom free and cleared by the health department to get back to life starting tomorrow (Friday).  My encouragement is to be proactively strengthening your immune response and also take action if you get infected. Please continue to pray for those still recovering.    
  • We will be holding services this Sunday. Tomorrow we move back to the first service (9:00AM) being a “Mask Required.” The second service 10:30AM will remain “Mask Optional” for now.
  • I want to mention that the building is being thoroughly cleaned each week. Our Ministry Center UV Air Scrubbers are working continuously to clean and sanitize the air 24×7.
  • Several ministries are kicking off this next week, September 19th. Here are the specifics below:

  • Men’s Bible Studies, both AM and PM will be start on Thursday, September 23, 10am and 7PM respectively.

  • Adult Bible Study with begin with a meet and greet this Tuesday September 21 at 7 PM at Admin Building (note change of location).  
  • AWANA will be begin on Sunday September 26 for those in K – 6th Grades.
  • Our new memory verse for September in recognition of our 20th Anniversary is from Lamentations 3:22-23. “The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22–23 ESV   I strongly encourage you to develop a system for memorizing Scripture. It could be using 3×5 cards or even an app. Let me encourage you to check out the Bible Memory App. (IOS and Android)
  • This week we will continue our study in Authentic Ministry as we work through the last portions in 2 Corinthians. I so do appreciate your prayers as we prepare our time in the Word this Sunday.
