What’s Happening This Week

Bible Distribution
Each year, we give Bibles to our children in 3rd grade and older who do not have a Bible. Kids will receive Bibles this week. If you have a 3rd grade student who does not have a Bible, please contact Heather Woods at and let us know.

Picnic Tables for Royston Elementary
The Men’s Ministry is working to provide eight picnic tables for an outdoor seating area for th students and teachers at Royston Elementary School. Each table costs about $200. Will you consider making a donation to help purchase tables? We are also looking for volunteers to help assemble and deliver the tables. If you are interested, please contact Larry Brown or Matt Parker.

Drive Up Communion (August 16)
Next Sunday, August 16, we will be having a Drive Up Communion and Prayer Service at 6:00 PM in the parking lot of the church. We will begin with a gathering at 6:00 PM where we will celebrate together with the Sacrament of Holy Communion. You are invited to come anytime between 6:00-7:00 PM to receive Communion and prayer.
