Fellowship will be each Sunday at 10 AM, with worship beginning at 10:30 AM. Check this space for information regarding when the normal schedule will resume, including dates and times for specific studies and activities.

Church picnic: Our annual Church Picnic is coming up Sunday, June 24th at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens from 2-6 PM. Meat and water will be provided. Sign up here to bring side dishes. If you would like to tour the Gardens, the cost is $4 per person, and there is a signup sheet in the Narthex.

Women’s Monthly Lunch: The next Women’s Monthly Lunch is July 5 at 11:30 AM.

Men’s Whitewater Rafting Trip: After surveying the congregation, it looks like July 21 is the Saturday that accommodates the most people. Adam Turnbull will be in touch shortly with those expressing interest. Please contact him if you have any questions.

Psummer Psalms: It’s not too late to sign up for memorizing a Psalm this summer. If interested, email for weekly encouragement and accountability.

Participation in PCA MNA Disaster Response: Members of our church met in May with a representative of the PCA Mission to North America Disaster Response Ministry. This PCA ministry provides support to PCA churches in disaster affected communities. We are considering forming a disaster response team within our church to help out when disasters occur within our presbytery. We need at least 8 team members; we now have 4. If you are interested in becoming a part of our disaster response team, contact Alan Cockrell at

Baby Nursery Volunteers: Moms of babies/toddlers, please sign up to work in our baby nursery at least once this summer. I also encourage all ladies of the church to sign-up. We are down a staff member there (Mrs. Irene had shoulder surgery) until the fall. Please consider serving our families in this way! There are still a couple of Sundays open. Click HERE to sign up.

New Nursery Staff Member: Please welcome Miss Tori to our nursery staff. She is working with children in the first classroom next to the kitchen. Please be mindful of this and let your children know they cannot run through the kitchen or try to access that room. This is now considered a part of our nursery and only accessible for Miss Tori and our mothers.
