Children & Youth
The Children's Ministry is collecting new items that can be used as prizes such as toys, stuffed animals, gift cards/certificates, activity books, puzzles, and new winter accessories - cute gloves, hats, scarves. If you have items to donate, please give them to Sister Debralyn Woodberry-Shaw today after church.
Monday and Wednesday Bible studies on Galatians and Ephesians will conclude within the next 2 weeks. We are beginning an Advent study in Sunday School on Sunday, December 3rd. This 4-week study will take us through a biblical account of Jesus’ birth and will ideally prompt a renewed commitment to your celebration of Christmas! Materials will be distributed at the class. We will resume our church-wide studies Sunday, January 7, 2018.
Our next study will be Money and Possessions: The Quest for Contentment. Publisher’s note about the study: “In this six-week study you will discover God’s view of material wealth. As you dig into the Scriptures, you’ll learn where money comes from, you’ll see how we’re supposed to handle it, and you’ll understand how to live an abundant life, regardless of your financial circumstances.” Classes will begin on Sunday, January 7th, Monday, January 8th and Wednesday, January 10th. Books are $8 and will be available for purchase on or after Sunday, December 24th.
Tea Time! - The holidays are often so busy that we don't stop to relax or even sip a cup of tea. Please join us December 10th at 1:30pm for a heartwarming holiday tea. Let’s slow down and spend some time together in fellowship! Please contact Toni Lewis at 662-352-3349 for more information.
