Community Food Drive
The team will meet tonight, December 14th at 7pm in the FUEL room to bring the food out and stage it for bagging. If you can lend a hand, come out tonight and help out.
Please continue to pray for those that will receive the blessing of food for their family on Saturday. They will see warm, smiling faces showing them God's love in action, and it's only possible because you all have generously contributed to this important mission.
K-5th Christmas Eve Morning Worship Service
On Christmas Eve morning, the K-5th will perform 2 songs during both the 9:30 and 11:00am worship services. This is open for any K-5th grader that wants to participate, even if you've missed the first practice. Below are the practice dates/times, along with links for both songs so your child can also practice at home.
Saturday, December 16th, 3:00-4:30pm in building C
Saturday, December 23rd at 10am. Need to wear ALL PLAIN BLACK please!!
Jayne would love for the kids participating to stay for both services if possible. They need to meet in the lobby of building C by 9:00am. They will walk over to the main building together. Once they finish singing, they will go directly to Kid's Worship. They will just stay in there and come over as a group for the 11:00 service. Parents that want to leave after they sing in the 11:00 service can meet them in building C to pick them up.
They need to be dressed in ALL PLAIN BLACK for the performance as well.

Lottie Moon was sent as a Southern Baptist missionary to China from 1873 to 1912. She saw firsthand the world’s greatest problem — LOSTNESS. Meeting so many people who had never heard the gospel compelled her to write letters to American churches describing the need for a greater missionary presence. She pleaded for increased prayer and financial support to send and sustain more missionaries. This challenge became known as the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering®.
We will be collecting for the Lottie Moon Offering through the end of December. Please put your offering in a Missions envelope or make a note on the memo line of your check.
Wednesday Night Activities
December 20th will be the last night for all Wednesday activities for 2023. We will take a break for Christmas and New Year's. All activities will resume on Wednesday, January 10th
