Team Impact Crusade February 25-March 1 7 p.m. each night!
Invite your friends to see incredible feats of strength and hear the gospel!!
From The Pastor
What a great time we had at our “Soup-er Bowl” fellowship. I want to thank each person who brought soup or a dessert. I felt it was a great success. I even heard a couple of people say we should do this a lot more often.
TEAM IMPACT is coming back! That’s right! Team Impact will be with us February 25-March 1. There are a lot of flyers, bookmarks, and cards to hand out. Let me encourage you to take a handful and pass them out. Last year we had more unchurched people come through our church than any other time. We also had over 160 people make professions of faith. Let’s get behind this effort and make it even more successful. If that is going to happen we need to bathe this in prayer. We need to pray for the team, the people who will be invited, the schools and the soldiers on post who will get a chance to experience a performance this year. We will need a host of volunteers again this time. We will need men to set up and clean up, meals for the team and counselors each night. If you would like to help, please let us know. Bro. Doug
The Singing Churchmen of Oklahoma @ McMahon Auditorium February 12, 7:00 p.m. Come see our Music Minister and 250 of his friends and colleagues in an unforgettable concert!

Team Impact Counselor Training
VBS Coming June 1-5
Two Opportunities: 5:15 or 8 p.m.
We will need an army of volunteers to help people wishing to make decisions during the upcoming crusade. Last year, we did not have enough and so we need your help - particularly if you have been trained previously in evangelism training such as FAITH or CWT. We need people that can help all five nights, but if you can help only one or two nights, we need you! If you served last year, we need your help again and you do need to attend one of these meetings as we are making some adjustments to the way we did things last year.
Recruitment begins this month for age-group department directors and rotation leaders in children and preschool for Vacation Bible School. If you are interested in serving in this way, contact Matt Passmore or Trey Smart at 355-6190.
After the first week in March, directors will begin recruiting teachers and your help will be needed every morning during this week. Other If you have never done anything like this before, we will tell volunteers will be needed to help with transyou exactly what to do and staff members will be available portation and registration. Call 355-6190 if you would like to help. to assist you if need during the counseling time. Every person needs to attend one of these two meetings. The meetings will be identical and child care will be available at the 5:15 p.m. training only.
