lease pray with me…

That we would be able to share Christ with the children and workers at Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs on Tuesday mornings starting June 5 as we do VBS (Vacation Bible School) with them. God has been raising up a good number of volunteers but we need a few more. Please let Patsy Steele or Stacy Stephenson or Maggie at the church office (325-949-5788) know if you want to help.


lease pray with me as we try to connect the children and their families to our church by inviting them to the Wednesday night activities we are offering this summer. We have an exciting children’s summer program, our normal youth Wednesday fellowship and Bible study, and classes for the adults: *Gospel Parenting *Biblical Personal Finance, and *Rekindling the Joy of Marriage. All classes run four weeks. Then you can choose another class for the next four weeks. We will not be meeting during the July 4th week. But mark Sunday, July 1 on your calendar for our Church Picnic at Pecan Pavilion immediately after the worship service.


lease pray with me that we will so love Christ that we will always be ready to share Christ stories with others.
