Announcements – March 5 2021

Sermon Preview:

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

As you read this note today, Carol and I are on the road taking a quick trip up to Kentucky to visit Joe, Jen, and our new grandson James.

Preaching for us this Sunday will be Matthew Elliott. Rev. Jim Daughtry will be leading worship and Communion.

Matthew’s sermon will come from 1 Samuel 3, and is entitled “ When Yahweh Speaks.” I hope you will pray for Matthew, Jim, and our worship team as they lead us this Lord’s Day. And thank you for your kind prayers for us while we are away.

Also, because of our trip, our Monday Encouragement note for next week will be sent out on Wednesday.

Finally, as we look ahead, remember that Daylight Savings Time begins on Sunday March 14, and Easter Sunday is April 4.

I love you all so much, and you are always on my heart and in my prayers!



COVID-19 Message:

For those of you who are attending worship in person on Sunday morning, please practice social distancing as much as you are able and observe the pew markers so that we may keep a safe, 6-ft between families. During this time, we will not have nursery or fellowship time with food and drink. If any family member has been sick, or you have a pre-existing condition, please consider staying home and joining us by watching the recorded service when it is sent out. Masks are not required if you are maintaining social distance, but are welcome. We hope and pray that if you have any needs, you will let a staff member or deacon know so that we can serve you well during this trying time.

Youth Group:

Youth Group meets March 14 at 4:30 PM at the church house.

Children’s Ministry:

We are working towards our first Parents Night Out in ages! I am super excited to start this ministry back up.

Our date is Friday, 3/26 from 5:30 to 8 pm at the church. We will take all Covid precautions to ensure safety of children and volunteers.

If you are able, please sign up to help by clicking HERE and adding your name to the table.

I have included several of you with YOUTH, so if your teen is available that evening, please add them to the list. We will need help w/ crowd control 🙂

I’ll be sending out the RSVP next week but wanted to firm up my volunteers.

Please also be praying for our night and for all those children who attend!
