“The Story” Sermon Series Beginning Sunday, September 8
A Comprehensive Look At the Bible
Sometimes it is good to be reminded of God’s redemptive acts throughout history. Starting on September 8, our church will begin a 31 week study of the Word of God that starts in Genesis and continues until we reach Revelation. This holistic approach will give us an appreciation of our wonderful Savior. There is a book called “The Story” that we hope each person will read. The chapters will go along with the sermon each week. We will also make available children’s version of “The Story” for families. I hope you will find this series a great way to talk about what God has done in the past and what He is doing today.

A Wonderful Day of Worship for Sunday​​​​​​​
Dr. Jim Thrower is a gifted speaker who has been a successful pastor and evangelist for the Church of the Nazarene. He has a special message from the Lord for us on Sunday. It is also our privilege to have Mrs. Stefanie Coburn Fuller to lead our praise and worship. She has a beautiful voice and over 25 years of music ministry experience. Please join us for this very inspirational day of worship.

Children’s Back To School Lock-in Friday & Saturday, August 30-31​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
Our kids will be heading back to school this coming week and to celebrate a fun-filled summer and to kick off another year of school, the leaders of our children’s ministry have an allnighter planned. The evening begins with plenty of games and activities. At some point, they will watch a movie and do some cooking. There might even be a nap for some of the kids. Please let us provide a memorable night for your child. For more details, see Dot Livingston, Dee Black, Anne Shaw, Laura Lowrimore or John Lowrimore.

First Family Feast Sunday, September 8​​​​​​​
One of the joys of being part of the church family is breaking bread together. Following the Morning Worship service on September 8, we will do just that. Rodney and Nicole Bayne are in charge of this gathering and they would love your help. If you would like to assist them, in decorating or cleaning up, please let them know. There will be a sign up sheet to help us know what is needed for the meal.

Letter From Pastor Bill

Hello Friends,

Hope everyone stayed cool during these hot days of August. We have reached the last week of vacation for our school-aged kids. In fact, several of our college students are heading back this weekend. Please pray for our students, teachers and administrators as they begin a new year. On Saturday, we will host the Southern Gospel Singing with the Gospel Truth at 6 PM. Here are some prayer request updates. Becky Drafts will have a pace maker procedure on Monday. Kristi Harmon's mother will have colon cancer surgery on Tuesday. Melveline Moore has been released from the hospital. Harold Finley had a successful heart catheterization on Tuesday. Carol Johnson remains in ICU at the Heart hospital. Vic Dent and Robert Hyatt are slowly recovering from their surgeries. Please continue to remember Karri Mahaffey, Ben Pearman, Linda Dent, the Halls, Joe Moore, Darrell Jenkins and all of our shut-ins. I hope you will join us on Sunday as Dr. Jim Thrower will be our special speaker.  

God Bless,

Pastor Bill
