Elders of the month for August will be the Class of 2020. They will be in charge of opening and closing the church on Sundays.
Please help us keep the prayer chain current and correct, especially the military section. Updates are appreciated.
Please help us keep our facility secure. Make sure all doors are locked, lights are off, and thermostats are set to a cool 80 degrees when you leave.
As we are traveling this summer, let’s all be proactive in supporting our ministries and missions of our church. We had to replace one A/C unit and do major repairs to two others this summer.
The needs of the food pantry are great. Robert needs more paper sacks and possibly another freezer. We also need help with food distribution as Robert will be having eye surgery. If you are able to help in any way, please let Robert or Dr. Jim know you can help.
This is the time of year when people move. Please take the time to invite new coworkers, neighbors, attendees at social functions or service clubs to come and be the church with us at 2nd and Oklahoma. Then, invite them to lunch afterwards. Most people make the decision to attend church and choose a congregation within 6-8 weeks of their move.
