We’ll take a break from our Mid-week Connect!on Small Groups during the summer. But that doesn’t mean we won’t get together! On Wednesdays, July 1, 15, 29, and August 12, join us in the Fellowship Hall for a night of food, fun, and fellowship. Bring a dish (or a snack) and a game. We’ll begin the night by eating a meal as a family, beginning around 6:30 PM. Then, we’ll break out the games and have a good time together.

Join us for our Mid-week Connect!on! We have groups from Adults through Nursery, and we invite you to join us as we study God’s Word together. The children in Grades K-5 have Discovery Club. There is no Youth meeting because of Senior High week at Camp Edisto. The Adults are studying the Sermon on the Mount.
Sunday, June 21
At 9:30 AM, we have Bible Study and Sunday School for all ages. Our children from new-borns through 5th grade meet in the education wing of the Main Building (go in through the side door). Enthusiastic and prepared teachers look forward to teaching your children. Our youth in Grades 6-12 meet in their Sunday School class which is also off of the education hallway.
We have two adult Sunday School classes. One meets in the Main Building and is currently studying the book, The Pursuit of Holiness, by Jerry Bridges. A second class meets in the Fellowship Hall and is studying the book Living a Life on Loan by Rick Rusaw and Eric Swanson.
Donuts with Dad
The Ladies Ministry has planned Donuts with Dad. We will have donuts and juice in the foyer beginning at 10:00 AM. This is a great way to kick-off Father’s Day. EVERYONE is invited!
At 10:30 AM, adults meet in the Worship Center to sing praises to God, share in the Lord’s Supper, and study God’s word together. Children from infants through 5 years old meet in the education wing for a time of crafts and games. Children in Grades 1-5 meet in the Worship Center for the first half of the worship service. During the Message time, they join the younger children in the education wing for an age-appropriate lesson time of their own.
We’re well into spring, a season which we associate with “life.” The grass is growing, the flowers are blooming, the azaleas are flourishing, and the pollen is blowing. We’re also two weeks after Easter, a time in which we who are believers in Jesus also focus on life. We celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, and we think about the life that we have in Christ. Clearly, this is a season in which we should desire to thrive in our lives in Christ.
The apostle Paul writes a letter that appears in the New Testament as 1 Thessalonians. Over these next several weeks, as spring moves towards summer, we’ll spend time in 1 Thessalonians and the letter that comes immediately after it, 2 Thessalonians, and we’ll learn what it means to Thrive as individuals and as a church.
There will be no Fusion since the Junior High will be headed to Camp Edisto in Branchville. We encourage all of our students to attend Camp. Ages 12 through 13 will have a fun week. Pick up a Camp Registration form in the foyer for more information.
