Vacation Bible School is almost here! This year's VBS will be from June 8-12, at 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. All children from 3 years to 12 years are invited for food, fun, and, most importantly, Bible classes.
Our theme this year is "The Amazing Race," and each night we will have a different local race car driver with us. We will also have an inflatable bounce house set up for the entire week. Nightly refreshments will be as follows:
Monday - Food and snacks
Tuesday - Ice Cream
Wednesday - Pizza
Thursday - Beach Hut Snow Cones
Friday - Cookout
Also on Friday night we will end the week with a classic car show. Please bring your kids and grandkids every night to enjoy the fun!
We have added two more sermons to the Sermons 2015 page. The Mother's Day sermon from May 10, "A Magnificent Mother," teaches us lessons from the life of Mary, the mother of Jesus. We also now have the sermon from May 17, "A Fool on a Mule," with applications from the story of Balaam and his talking donkey.
Next Sunday evening will be our regular fifth Sunday singing to benefit Free Will Baptist Family Ministries. We are pleased to be having the Benton Family with us for that service. Please come and listen to some great gospel music and also to support the work of FWB Family Ministries.
Next Sunday morning, May 31, Brad Ransom will be preaching for us. Brad is Director of Church Planting for North American Ministries and works closely with our church planters and their families.
We hope to take a church bus load of our people to Bristol this Saturday, May 30, for the Church Revitalization Conference sponsored by the Shiloh FWB Church. This one-day conference (9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.) will feature seminars by our North American Ministries staff (David Crowe, Jim McComas, and Brad Ransom) along with music and preaching. It will be especially helpful to our teachers and church leaders but will be a blessing to anyone who wishes to go. Lunch will be provided by the host church. The group will be leaving from our church at 8:00 a.m.
We have gotten permission for our Band of Brothers to meet this month at the infamous spot known as "Brenda's Huntin' Property." You have heard about it, and now you will have a chance to visit the place Preacher Bob is always referring to. The pastor is providing hamburgers and drinks; we are asking the men to bring side dishes and desserts to enjoy around the campfire. The date is this Saturday, May 23, and the time is 6:00 p.m. Directions will be given out at church services this week. Update: Several of the men will be meeting at the church to ride the church bus over to the property. The bus will be leaving at 5:30 p.m.
This coming Wednesday morning, May 20, we will be having a special time of prayer and Bible study at 10:00 a.m. in the church auditorium. Brother Don Clayman will be leading the Bible study; then we will have a time of prayer as we continue to seek the Lord's blessings on our church.
We will still have our regular Wednesday evening service at 6:30 p.m.
Please visit our "Video of the Month" page for a special tribute to Mothers, as we celebrate Mother's Day.
Ladies, keep your calendars open on Friday, May 15. The preacher will be taking our ladies to breakfast (place of their choice) and then to a "shop 'til you drop" trip to the Pinnacle Shopping Center (and anywhere else they decide to go). It is your day, ladies, so plan to join us and make the most of it. We will be riding the church bus and leaving promptly at 9:00 a.m.
Bring Mom (and Grandma) to church on Mother's Day, May 10, for a special service. To allow families to have more time together, we will not be having an evening service that Sunday.
All children are invitited to experience "May Madness" next Friday evening, May 8, at the Activities Building from 6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Marsha Mullins is collecting Campbell's labels and box tops for education, to send to Free Will Baptist Family Ministries in Greeneville and to Harvest Child Care Ministries in Duffield. The labels and box tops can be found on numerous items, both food and non-food. For more information and a complete listing of brands and products, please visit www.labelsforeducation.com
The "About Our Pastor" page has been updated and renamed "About Our Staff." We have added the picture and bio for Jonathan Lewis, who is our newly added Director of Family and Music Ministry. This page can be found by going to the "About Us" page on the menu at the left.
Our church recently voted to add a new part-time position and hire Jonathan Lewis as our Director of Family and Music Ministry. We are planning more outreach to young adults and families in the near future. Our church is excited to see how God will use Jonathan with a stronger music ministry and our expanded emphasis on families and youth.
"What Does the Bible Really Say" will be an ongoing series of sermons/lessons beginning Sunday night, January 4. Pastor Bob will be addressing questions posed by our people and will try to bring a clear Biblical perspective to those questions. If you have something in Scripture that is a concern or question to you, please write your question on a slip of paper and put it in the offering plate or give it to the pastor. We will be looking at some very interesting subjects as we begin this new year!
On Sunday evening, August 31, the majority of the church members voted to make the morning service time changes permanent. Please join us for Sunday School at 9:30 a.m. (classes for all ages) and for morning worship service at 10:30 a.m. Sunday evening services will continue to begin at 6:00 p.m., and Wednesday evenings we will continue to meet at 6:30 p.m.
