Ladies Spring Banquet

Calling all ladies – the last day to purchase tickets is this coming Lord’s Day – May 7th. See Deeanna at the table in the foyer, so you don’t miss out on this great program this year!

Weekend Happenings!

There is some great stuff happening this weekend:   Saturday at 8:00 AM. Great food, good fellowship, and a time of Bible and prayer. What’s not to love about prayer breakfasts?     Final one of the year – Saturday at 6:30 PM. Corn hole tournament, and the usual array of games and fun. Bring your corn hole boards if you have them, and something to share food-wise, and your favorite board or card games. Let’s make this last one…

A Quiet Week

On this week between the holidays, we’ll be taking a break from a couple of things. Men’s Bible Study for this Tuesday is cancelled, as is the Wednesday Prayer Meeting. Enjoy the week of recovery from Christmas and anticipation of the New Year!  


This year’s Operation Christmas Child packing party is TOMORROW, Saturday, November 12th, starting at 10AM. Our goal this year is to pack at least 750 boxes, and we’re actually hoping to top 1000. Join us at 10. This is a wonderful ministry for all ages, from the smallest child to the oldest senior. All can be involved and get in on the rewards of sending a box of gifts, the most important of which is the gift of salvation, to…


Just a quick reminder that we serve at the Haven of Rest in Akron on the first Saturday of every month, feeding the homeless and needy. So that’s this Saturday, November 5. We meet at the Haven at 10AM. If you’ve never helped with rewarding ministry, give it a try. If you have questions, you can reach out to Paul Richards or Larry and Karen Cannon.  


Well, at least the best for the guys who attend Men’s Prayer Breakfasts! That’s right… it’s tomorrow, October 22nd, at 8:00AM in the new building. Food, Fun, Fellowship, and Feasting on God’s Word. Believe me, if you’ve not attended one before, you don’t want to miss it. And if you have attended it before, I know you’re adding an AMEN to what I just said. Come early and get a seat!

They Ate!

So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, (Acts 2:46 NKJV) That was the early church, and guess what? We will follow in their footsteps Saturday (April 23rd at 8AM) as we gather for Men’s Prayer Breakfast! Guys, this is not something you’ll want to miss – join us for great food and fellowship. Bring your Bibles and prayer requests, too, for…

More Sweat Equity Opportunity!

Calling able bodied men! We have a need for some high work. This Thursday, we need to do some cutting of the styrofoam where the trusses will attach. This will involve working about 18′ in the air. So I’m asking for help in two ways: Anybody have access to scaffolding which will allow us to reach that height? If so, please reply a.s.a.p. We will rent if need be. We need some men willing to climb that scaffolding and work…
