  • School Backpack Food Ministry Has Resumed

    School Backpack Food Ministry Has Resumed

    Many children will have little food at home over the weekend in our area. Our church is providing a backpack of food for 15 children to take home on Friday afternoons to help feed themselves and their family.  On Mondays, the backpacks are returned and our church fills them again for the next weekend.  The children are selected by the school and the backpacks are handed out by school teachers.  Funding for this ministry comes from our food pantry ministry account.  We need help with this ministry—specifically people to purchase food, help pack the backpacks, and people willing to donate to our food pantry ministry account.  Talk to Nan Boyd about becoming part of one of the backpack teams that meets once every three weeks.

    Vacation Bible School 2018, July 16-20

    VBS starts next week.  Are your kids going to be there? Are your neighbor’s kids going to be there?  “Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus” – a VBS where kids are anchored in the truth that Jesus carries them through life's storms.  Led by our in-reach ministry team, the fun will take place in the evenings, 5:30 to 8:30 PM, Monday through Friday, from July 16 to 20.  We still could use more crew leader assistants, who help shepherd a small group of children through the different “stations,” so please pray and consider helping.  We truly need you. Everyone, please keep this important ministry in your prayers. 

  • 2018 Youth Summer Mission Trip

    2018 Youth Summer Mission Trip

    The Youth Mission Trip took place June 24 – 30 this year.  There were six adults and twelve youth that participated. Their destination was San Augustine County, Texas.  They again connected with Next Step Ministries, which is doing extensive work in that community to help those in need.  Our group broke into two work teams for the week. One team worked on the home of an 89 year old widow.  Next Step suggested at first that she tear down her home and they could start over, but she loves her home so our team leveled the back corner of the house, replaced window panes and siding, and installed shelving and trim in the kitchen.  The other team helped build an addition on a portable building to become a woman’s home.  They framed the outside walls and roof, and put decking on the roof.  In addition, they wired the original part of the building.  The mission trip company that the youth group works under, Next Step Ministries, not only plans a week where youth can learn to serve and be the hands and feet of Christ, but they also make sure the youth have a time of worship and learning about God.  Each morning after breakfast, they had morning devotions, then devotions during lunch, and would finish off the day with a worship service and a time of reflection on how God is working in their lives.  The youth mission trip was a blessing for everyone.  Thank you to all those who also participated in this mission trip through your prayers and financial contributions. 

  • M.A.D. Camp Completed!  - Music/Art/Drama Program, June 18-22

    M.A.D. Camp Completed!  - Music/Art/Drama Program, June 18-22

    Our M.A.D. summer children's program (Music, Art and Drama) was a wonderful success.  All week long the twenty-five children participated in art projects, music and drama, as well as some fun games and refreshments.  The center of the camp was the preparation of a musical called “Star Quest.”  The message of the play centered on the importance of scripture and scripture memorization.  All of the kids learned the music, some worked on the drama portion of the musical, and everyone worked on many individual art projects, including painting, stained glass, etc…  We thank our leaders: Drama and Music—Irma Bayne and Kellie Meyer, Art and Games—Scott Martin.  We also thank all of our other volunteers: adults and youth.  We especially thank the Lord for making this fourth year of the MAD program a success.
