New Sunday School Classes Start This Sunday!

Two new Sunday School classes for adults kick off this Sunday, January 7!

Pastor Jon will be leading VISIONARY PARENTING in the south side of the Fellowship Hall. This new Sunday School class is aimed at equipping parents to teach their children to love God with all their heart. We will be studying the book and DVD Visionary Parenting with times of discussion together about how to apply the content in our homes.

Dr. Tom Bevill will kick off a 12-week study in the chapel called FOLLOWING JESUS and it will invite us to review the story of Jesus’ earthly ministry as presented in the Gospels and have a special emphasis on renewing our personal calls to discipleship. Dr. Bevill is a former professor of Marriage and Family Counseling and Christian Studies at the University of Mobile.

Sunday School classes will also continue in the north side of the Fellowship Hall, in the conference room and in the bridal room (next to the choir room).  There’s something for everyone!

Four Worship Services This Christmas Eve!

Share in the joy of our Savior’s birth!  We will have FOUR worship services on CHRISTMAS EVE!  At 10 AM, we will have ONE combined service and close out our sermon series, Even So, Come, for the fourth Sunday of Advent. Worship continues that evening at our Christmas Eve candlelight services at 5 PM (organ/choir), 7 PM (praise team) and 11 PM (communion in the chapel). We hope to see you there!

Sing Carols with Us on Dec. 17!

Our church family will be CHRISTMAS CAROLING on Sunday, December 17, and we’d love to have you join us! We will gather at 4 PM at the church. After caroling, we will return to the church for a chili supper in the Fellowship Hall! All children ages 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult. If you would like to volunteer for supper, we need crockpots of chili and chili toppings. Please contact Gay O’Neil at 872-2355 if you would like to serve in this way.
