  • Events and gatherings

    • Fifth and Sixth Grade Leadership Retreat: This leadership retreat is created for 5th and 6th graders to connect with one another, learn some leadership skills and discuss how they can use their talents and gifts to serve in our ministry. Meet at the church at 5:45 on Friday, August 25th (eat dinner before you come, please!). We will head to Shocco Springs and enjoy some fun on the rope swing and climbing wall and more! Don't forget to dress casual and wear your tennis shoes! We will return at 9:30 PM.
    • Fall DU ( Discipleship University) has begun! It is not too late to get involved in one of our fall small groups. Classes are posted so make sure you check out what is being offered this fall for small groups! 
  • Serving opportunities

    • Operation Christmas Child: This year, as a church, we will be collecting monthly items for Operation Christmas Child shoe-boxes. This October, we will have a church-wide packing party much like our ‘Christmas In July’ last summer (more information to come). Each month our Sunday School classes will be asked to collect certain items. I will collect these and store them monthly for you so that we will have items to fill our boxes with in October. Our church packed 395 boxes last year, PRAISE THE LORD! This year we are raising the bar to a goal of 500!! Thank you in advance for supporting this mission. During the month of  August we will be collecting school supplies. Example would be color pencils, crayons, coloring books, pencils, pens, glue sticks (liquid glue please) etc. Remember they have to be small enough to fit in a shoe box along with other items.
    • Ann's New Life Center for Women:  Ann's New Life Center is a free pregnancy resource center. They offer pregnancy tests, classes, support, resources and material aid for women who are facing a stressful or unplanned pregnancies. During the month of May, baby bottles will be available in Sunday School class rooms or the church office for you to fill with change, bills or a check (make checks out to Ann's New Life Center). Please return the filled bottles by May 31st. If you have question about ANL you can contact them here, call (205) 338-4580 or visit Ann's New Life Center website.
