    to pray specifically for the needs of those in our church.
    If you would like to be added to the prayer list please let Ashley Day know([email protected])!
    Please include how we can specifically pray for you.

    • Book Corner: If I'm a Christian, Why am I Depressed? by Robert Somerville
      In this honest work, Dr. Somerville explains that depression is not restricted to the secular world. Throughout history, godly men and women--among them Martin Luther and Charles Spurgeon--have suffered in the deep trenches of dark emotion. But God's Word promises hope at the seemingly unreachable end of trials, and new strength forged from adversity and pain in the new light that follows the darkness of despair.

    • Fellowship Dinner-Sunday, September 30th
      We will be having a fellowship dinner on Sunday, September 30th, following the morning service. Families are requested to bring the following to share (by last name):
      A-F: raw veggies & dip
      G-L: 2 loaves of bread & 2 large packages of sliced Colby Jack or other mild cheese for grilled cheese sandwiches. PB & J will be provided.
      M-R: a large pot of soup or chili
      S-Z: a double batch of a dessert

    • Missionary of the Month: Solid Rock Camp/Think Like Christ Ministries

    • Fall Wednesday Night Ministries-Wednesdays 6:30-8:00 PM
      All are invited to join us on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:00 PM to study doctrinal truths from God's Word! There is something for all ages!

      Kids4truth:
      Kids4Truth is a doctrine based children's Bible club jam-packed full of fun and learning. Upon joining the club, children will receive their own book to learn from and a sash to add awards to. Children will learn from Bible and Character stories, memorize verses, play active games, earn awards and prizes, and just have a great time being with other kids. Ages 4-5th grade are welcome!

      Youth Group:
      Nate Day will be heading up youth group this year. Youth group is for ages 6th-12th grade. All teens are welcome! They will also be studying through the Kids4truth material but at their own level.

      Adult Bible Study:
      This Bible study will be led by Pastor Troy. The adults will also be learning doctrinal truth that goes along with Kids4truth material. The goal is for the whole church to be learning together the same doctrinal truth but at age appropriate levels.
