SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP ~ 11:00 AM Call to Worship Invocation and Welcome Congregational Singing Worship Through the Giving of Tithes and Offerings Special Music Message ~ Rev. Eric Atkins “You Shall be My Witnesses” Acts 1-3 Invitation
From the Pastor’s heart… Next Sunday! On June 30th, we are blessed to welcome Dr. Derek McCosh and his family to our morning service. Derek has a heart for church planting and is currently in the initial phases of planting a church in Sweetwater, TN. He has served churches in Kentucky, North Carolina, and most recently in Walling, TN. He also happens to be married to my wonderful sister, Christy. Derek and Christy have five children, 2 girls and 3 boys! Their youngest sons, Koby and Si, are adopted from Ghana and I know many of you prayed for their adoption journey and safe arrival to our family. Trust me, they will put a smile on your face. Derek is not only my brother in-law, he has been a mentor in my life. He has encouraged me continuously and has been an example of a faithful witness from my youth. Don’t miss a blessing! I hope to see you next Sunday morning and bring a friend with you. Pastor Eric

Summer Small Groups Summer Small Groups start tonight! The following studies are being offered. I am a Church Member (Thom Rainer) Based on an idea originally taken from this blog, I Am a Church Member discusses the attitudes and responsibilities of church members. Rainer addresses in detail what congregations should really be focusing on — praying for church leaders, being a functioning member, treasuring church membership, and more. This study will be facilitated by John Simpson and Pastor Eric Atkins. Loving Well (Beth Moore) This bible study contains four heart-to-heart messages designed to help women embrace the biblical mandate to love and to develop skills for loving others. Taped at a Living Proof Live event, Beth discusses how some people are a joy to love, some are difficult to love, and how we all deal with some people who are humanly impossible to love. In all of those relationships one truth endures: We will never be able to love others well until we have been loved well. And only God can ultimately give us the complete love we so desperately need. This study will be facilitated by Cindy Atkins. The Gospel Project for Kids! This is a Christ-centered Bible study that follows a chronological timeline of Bible events—presenting the story of redemption through Jesus like kids have never seen it before! Each week, these stories come to life through video, music, activities, and more. If you are interested in helping with our children’s class, please see Pastor Eric today. Thanks!
