Here It Is!!! Last Chance!!!

The last prayer meeting of 2020 is upon us this evening. I hope you’ll join us. I’m going to share a few thoughts about 2021, and what will be important going into the new year. And of course we’ll pray for one another… for our world… for the growth of the Kingdom… for souls… for health… for peace… for our land… for you. Much to pray about. Will you join us? It’s your last chance to do so this year!…

Carols and Candles

Because of the pandemic this year, I elected to cancel our normal Christmas Eve candlelight services. Those services normally draw a large crowd, and most of that crowd is from outside our normal church family. Out of an abundance of caution, therefore, I cancelled the normal Christmas Eve candlelight services this year. Some have expressed chagrin over that decision, and our awesome worship leader Beth came up with a compromise. We will use the prayer meeting this week, which is…

Christmas Baskets – Home Stretch

Saturday at 9:00 am we will pack and distribute our Christmas boxes for those who are struggling this Christmas season. If you still want to contribute, I’ve attached the current sign up sheet so you can see what’s still needed. All contributions need to be at the church no later than noon tomorrow (Friday). There will be someone at the church from 9 – 12 if you need to drop something off. And if you can help us pack the…

Christmas Cheer

We’ve had quite a few sick and struggling this Christmas season. We usually provide Christmas food baskets to the needy, but this year we’re targetting our own who have been down with COVID or any other such thing. Two things we need: If you know anybody who is hurting because of COVID or something like it, let us know so we can try and add them to the list of recipients. If you can donate any of the remaining items…

Coming to the End!

We are coming to the end in several ways: It’s Friday – the end of the week and the beginning of the weekend. Praise the Lord it’s almost the Lord’s Day, the best day of the week and the start of a new one. It’s almost December – the end of 2020. Many will say Praise God for that. And the Scripture is clear that we’re in the last minutes. It’s almost the end of everything here as we know…

Thanksgiving Giving

Saturday at 10:00 we will pack and distribute boxes of food for some in need this Thanksgiving season. Will you help? We need some to pack the boxes, and some to deliver them. Saturday from 10-12. ‘Tis the season for thanksgiving giving!

Last Chance!

This coming Lord’s Day (November 22nd) is the last Sunday you can bring in shoeboxes for this year’s Operation Christmas Child collection. If you miss the Sunday deadline, the trailer won’t leave until 11 on Monday, so you can still bring boxes from 9-11 on Monday. Then that’s it! Pack those boxes! And pray like crazy for souls to be saved by the trailer load of shoeboxes going out from this place!

Give Thanks… By Giving

We will be assembling and distributing Thanksgiving food boxes to those who need some encouragement this year. We will do this on Saturday, November 21st at 10:00 AM. We need some to help assemble the boxes and some to distribute them. We also need additional donations of some of the specific foods on this list: Additionally, we have some boxes that are not assigned to a person in need yet. Do you know somebody who could use the encouragement of…
