Ash Wednesday / February News & Events

All go to one place. All are from the dust, and to dust all return.
Ecclesiastes 3:20

O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise. For you have no delight in sacrifice; if I were to give a burnt offering, you would not be pleased. The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
Psalm 51:15-17

PRAYER - Want to be a part of our intercessory prayer group, praying with people during communion? Please contact Natalee Whitesell (nataleewhitesell@gmail.com) for more info.

SCRIPTURE READING / PRAYERS of the PEOPLE - We'd love to add you to our group of readers and prayer leaders on Sundays. Contact Lance Renault (lmrenault@gmail.com) for more info.

KIDS & NURSERY MINISTRIES - We are growing and need you! Our heart is to share the responsibility of caring for our little ones on Sunday mornings across the breadth of our church body. Will you serve one Sunday every 6-8 weeks? Contact Ashley Cain (ashleyecain@gmail.com) or Kilpy Snyder (kilpy.snyder@gmail.com) to lend a hand.
