Ministry Highlights

These highlights share specific things that we are working on as a church.

June 2024 Board Highlights of our Ministries

  • Joni Broshar shared statistics about the Rise Up Hygiene Pantry’s clients. One year ago when it started, the hygiene pantry served 20 guests/households. Now they’re serving 60 guests/households each month for a total of 115-120 different households. We have made further connections into the community as a result of this ministry.
  • Joni is planning a “funraiser” at the Bixler in September to raise awareness in the community about the hygiene pantry. Details and date to follow.
  • We will put new decals on the top portion of both sides of the outdoor sign. These decals have the new mission statement Seeking Jesus – Serving Others on it.
  • Angela Neighbors can now add many more people to the prayer chain list. If you want to be added to the prayer chain, please contact Angela.
  • One of the charter busses has electrical/alternator problems and is getting worked on.
  • All of us need to be more intentional about helping new people feel welcome on Sunday mornings. Sit with new people and have conversations with them beyond the meet & greet time.

Mark your calendars for:

  • Allan Contreras will preach both services and give an update during Sunday school on June 16. He’s one of our missionaries. Allan and his family live in Manzanillo, Mexico.
  • Gene & Becky McCoy will be guest speakers and singers on Adult Recognition Day, Sunday, June 30. This is also a Fifth Sunday when we have a combined service at 9 am. This time, we will have Sunday school classes after the service (no breakfast). Gene will lead the adult Sunday school classes in the auditorium. Then we will have a fried chicken lunch served by the youth. Don Hunt II is coordinating this event.
  • June 30 is also the Biannual Meeting at 6 pm. That evening meeting will include an update from Sojourn Collegiate Ministry by Nevalee Hawkins. We’ll have ice cream after the meeting.
  • A young adult retreat will be held August 2-4. A group from Winigan called “Mountain Top Ministry” is holding this event at the East 40. More info online: @elevate_retreat2024

Here’s how you can pray for the leaders of our congregation: Pray for our follow-up with new Christians and new members to help them become mature followers of Jesus, active members of our congregation, and make solid connections with other members.
