july 31 - "Touching Jesus"

This week, remember that you are sent out to saturate the world with Jesus and His love. Go out into the towns, villages, farms, and marketplaces and share Jesus' good news. Go to the places He goes and has already gone to join Him on His mission to heal the world. Go, and be the church.

Sunday, August 7

9am - Sunday Morning Bible Classes

Adult Discipleship Gathering in the Fellowship Hall.  Eddie and Annette Sharp are teaching a "Study of Paul's Letter to the Ephesians: Living to the Praise of God's Glory."

Babies through Kindergartners will be in the Community Room connected to the Fellowship Hall. Enter through door F.

First through fifth graders will be in the Student Bldg. (labeled HOSM)

6th thru 12th grades remain in the Student Bldg.

10am (Fellowship Hall) - "Listen to me"

Again we hear Jesus contrasting His message with the teaching of the Scribes and Pharisees. Jesus invites those to listen, again, to Him above the heart and tradition of the religious rulers. Are we willing to examine our heart and truly hear the message Jesus longs to give?

August 7 - Bridge Blessing

This is a special day for those entering 6th grade to mark the important transition from the Children’s Ministry into the Student Ministry.  The 6th graders, along with their parents, are invited to attend a special combined Bridge and Student class on the first floor of the Student Building with Marla Finley and Kevin Harrington-Bain.

Please arrive between 8:45-9am to enjoy donuts and kolaches before we get started. The 6th graders will receive a personalized blessing and a gift during class and then they will also be prayed over from your seats during worship. Please let us know asap that your family will be participating.

During Worship Service

We love the sounds of kids and babies in worship. It’s wonderful when they can engage in worship with us. And whenever you feel the need to allow your kids to move around and be louder, feel free to walk them to the back of the Fellowship Hall to grab Activity sheets and Praise Packs and stretch their legs. The Community Room is also serving as our Nursery for kids ages 4-35 months and a Nursing Mom’s area.
