Announcements – June 11 2021

Sermon Preview:

Church family,

Pastor Mike and Carol are still on vacation. He will return to the pulpit on June 20 and will begin a 12 part summer preaching series on Romans 12.

This Sunday Rev. Dieter Paulson will be preaching a sermon titled “Grace in Lament” from Psalm 77. Dieter is pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian, a PCA church plant in Scottsboro. We look forward to hosting him Sunday, and are appreciative of his service to us.

Remember that worship is now beginning at 9:30 AM.

Also remember tonight’s Summer Bible Club fellowship night for our children and parents. Contact Norm and Amanda Dean if you have questions about this compelling event.

As always, if there is anything the Deacons can do for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Hope you have a blessed Friday, and we look forward to seeing you bright and early Sunday morning!

Adam, on behalf of the Diaconate


Summer Worship Time Change:

Continuing throughout the summer, Sunday worship will begin at 9:30 AM in the Sanctuary. Starting June 20th (Father’s Day) at 9 a.m. we will resume our coffee, snack and fellowship time just off the Narthex. We will also begin serving special snacks to the children in the fellowship room at the same time. Parents, please encourage your children to enjoy their snacks where they are served.

Sharon O’Neil Memorial Service:

We will have Sharon O’Neil’s memorial  service at the Church on Saturday June 26, at 10:00 AM. Visitation with the family will follow the memorial service.

Psummer Psalms:

I’m happy to announce that we will continue the tradition of our Psummer Psalms for the 4th straight year!

Please join us for an afternoon/evening of reciting Psalms followed by some food and fellowship. Everyone of any age is invited to memorize one entire Psalm this summer and then come together Sunday afternoon, August 15th, for a recitation and dinner.

Recitation can be individual, or together in a group or family.

Simple steps:

1)  Pick a Psalm, any Psalm
2)  Memorize it
3)  Recite it on Aug 15th, to God’s glory

It’s fine if multiple people pick the same Psalm. This happens every year!

As we get closer to Aug 15, I will send out more details about the event and get you to send me the Psalm you have memorized.

Join us by sending an email to for periodic encouragement and accountability.

Youth Group:

Youth Group will resume in the Fall.

Children’s Ministry:

A note from Amanda, our Nursery Coordinator:

First, a huge thank you to those you have volunteered in our nursery during Sunday worship over the past couple of months. It has been a great blessing to our children, nursery staff, and families.

I have created a new sign up extending through the summer months so please click on the link below if you would like to help in the nursery in the coming weeks. Don’t forget our new worship schedule this summer! Since service will begin at 9:30 as of May 30th, we ask that you arrive in the nursery at 9:15 to help welcome our children in. More details can be viewed on the sign up page.

If you have any questions or comments, please reach out to Amanda Dean or Ashley Turnbull. It has been such a blessing as a parent to see our church as a whole lovingly take part in helping raise our children in a way that points them to their Creator. Thank you all!

Amanda Dean
