Meals and Missionaries!

It’s MEN’S PRAYER BREAKFAST TIME!!! Men, you won’t want to miss this wonderful event, Saturday at 8:00. It’s hard to say what is more valuable – the food, the friendships, or the time in the Word and prayer. And this Sunday, we have our missionary partner Teena Embaugh joining us in both the Sunday School and morning worship hours. You’ll rejoice when you hear what is accomplished with your missions giving!  

Now we praise… and now we pray…

Praise God for each person who packed a box this year, and for all those who labored so hard to make this our biggest Operation Christmas Child year yet. Great is your reward, brothers and sisters! GREAT is your reward. Rejoice in your labor for Jesus and pray He uses it gloriously now for the kingdom. May every single one of these 1677 boxes take the gospel to the heart of not only a child, but that child’s family, and…

Messy Stalls

Where no oxen are, the crib is clean: but much increase is by the strength of the ox. (Proverbs 14:4 KJV) That verse reminds me that if you’re going to get things done for Jesus, sometimes it’s going to get messy! And this is a messy busy fascinating weekend coming up. Operation Christmas Child collection week is in full swing. There are boxes everywhere! And more coming in through Sunday when collection ends and we load the final boxes in…

Pack Pack Pack

It’s here! The 2019 Operation Christmas Child packing party will be tomorrow (Saturday, November 16th) at 10:00 AM.

Only when we get to heaven will we know what impact each of these gift boxes had for souls. Will you join us?
