  •      We continue to see exciting things happening on the church property. I want to give a shout out to those that helped with the workdays this past Friday, Saturday and Monday. We were able to figure out installing the fencing and planting the trees along the property line.  If you have some time and can help, please reach out to Pastor Joe.
  •     I need to be gone this week but am working on having someone on-site for another work day this Saturday from 9AM -?? I will be on the site this Monday from 10 AM -?? If you are interested in helping, please reach out to Pastor Joe.
  • We will be doing a soft kick off of the Operation Christmas Child on Sunday October 27th. There will be boxes available in the foyer. We will be encouraging each family to fill shoe boxes for this year’s drive to touch the hearts of children around the world with the love of a Christmas gift. We will have boxes available later this month. The collection deadline will be November 17th.
  • Be sure to plan for the “Celebration Potluck” Sunday October 27th after the AM service. We are asking everyone to bring Soup and Bread or Soup and Pie. It promises to be a great Sunday as we celebrate what the Lord is doing.
  • Be sure to pass the word on AWANA. We are meeting at Givens Center again this year at 5:30 pm on Sundays. Let me encourage you to reach out to other families that have students in the K- 6th grade range to encourage them to attend. Please contact Pastor Berney with any questions.

  • Our Monthly Memory Verse for October is, ““Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.” Psalm 100:3 ESV One of the greatest truths in the Bible is of God’s love and care for us. This verse can be a life preserver when facing difficulties.  If you are struggling in this area, let me encourage you to check out the ScriptureTyper App. (IOS and Android)
  • This Sunday in our “Step In Faith” series we look at Abraham. Abraham reminds us of our need to grow through those impossible times in our lives. He is an example of a man who walked in faith. He challenges us to hold onto God when we cannot figure out where the Lord is leading.  We do need your prayers for our congregation as we challenge ourselves to step out in faith doing our part to move our site development forward. I also covet your prayers that God would speak into my life through my studies of Abraham this week.
