NEW SUNDAY SCHEDULE begins this week
Early Service Begins. Balcony construction will necessitate the removal of pews in the work area reducing sanctuary seating capacity by 200. To provide enough seating, a second service will be added at 8:00 AM until construction is complete. There will NOT be a nursery or childcare available during this service, so we are encouraging those without young children to attend this service.
New Sunday School Time. During the balcony construction, Sunday School will meet from 9:30 -10:15 AM.
CROSSROADS TO THE HOLY LAND UPDATE.
We are excited about partnering with Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary in a thrilling journey to Israel, June 27-July 4, 2019. There is still time to sign up. On Sunday, January 13 at 4:00 in the Awana Room, we will have a follow-up informational meeting. If you have already registered or if you are interested in hearing more about our trip, you won’t want to miss our special guest from Israel, Moshe Gabay. Moshe is the Director of Keshet Journeys in Jerusalem. He is a professional licensed tour guide and has been working in tourism since finishing his compulsory army duty with the Israeli military. Moshe is a born again believer in Jesus and his mission is to bring people closer to Him by showing them the Land of Israel.
