A weekly group where you don't have to have it all together. You will find people who truly understand the raw emotions and difficult struggles you are facing. GriefShare helps you move from mourning to joy, showing you how to take healthy steps forward in the days, weeks and months after your loved one's death.
The next session will begin on September 11th.
Do you want to serve God, but not sure what to do? Or, do you want to reach out to those in our community, but not quite sure how to do it? The Least of These Ministries is a new moving ministry of the church, who want to serve God's people within the church by helping them with moving - something that can be very stressful if you don't have the resources to do it. We also want to reach out to our community and make connections with those who may be searching for hope and direct them to the church. This may sometimes include helping with cleaning and packing, if assistance is needed. We are looking for anyone, both men and women, who may be interested in serving in this Ministry. You do not have to be available every time we move someone.
In the past, the name KEENAGERS meant the senior adults had an opportunity to get together, share a covered dish, have entertainment and scriptural encouragement. It was a good program which many enjoyed. The Senior Adult Connection is very similar.
Our purpose for the Senior Adult Connection time is to get people connected. Our purpose statement is: "Purposeful Connections equals creating opportunities and space for relationships of seniors to happen or begin". It is also a time when you can invite friends or neighbors for fun, fellowship, as well as an opportunity to hear a brief message from the Scriptures.
Our next Senior Connection Event will be a picnic on Friday, September 13th from 5-7 pm at Stan & Jan Wickham's home. Meat, dessert and drinks will be provided. Bring your own lawn chairs and a covered dish to share. Please sign up at the Connection Center if you plan to attend.
The goal for Christmas 2019 is to pack 500 shoeboxes! They are going to collect items throughout the year. Each month will be something different. In October there will be a church wide packing party! It will be in the bulletin what items they are collecting and totes will be available for you to place your items in. If you prefer, you may still pack boxes on your own. Let's help spread the love of Jesus Christ to as many children and families around the world as we can.
*Boxes will be available in the Foyer beginning Sunday, October 6. Tubs will be available at the three main entrances for you to place your shoeboxes. Deadline to turn them in is Sunday, November 10. The Youth will have a packing party on Wed., Nov. 6 at the Youth Center during Youth Group (6:45 pm). If anyone is interested in helping pack shoeboxes, you are welcome to join them on this evening.
