Glorifying God...Expanding His Kingdom

Weekly Announcements

From the November 18, 2018 Bulletin


Childcare – We have preschool care during the worship services for preschoolers ages 0-5 in our nursery area (rooms 105-106.)  Children grades K-4 will stay with their parents during the song service, then they are dismissed to children’s church before the message.  You must pick up your child from children’s church after the service in Room 207.


Children’s Worship Bulletins – There are Children’s Worship Bulletins available on the rail by the organ each Sunday with activities to do during worship.  There are separate ones for ages 3-6 and ages 7-12.  Pick one up for your child.


Thanksgiving Service – This Tuesday night, November 20 at 6:30 pm, we will have our church Thanksgiving Service to offer our thanks to God for all His many blessings.  We meet on Tuesday night because so many people are getting ready for Thanksgiving Day family events on Wednesday night.  Therefore, we will not have activities for preschool, children, youth or adults on this Wednesday night, November 21.


Children’s Choir – Children’s Choir has begun again for the fall season.  We meet on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm in the choir room.  We will work on a song for the Christmas Cantata and songs for Sunday specials.


Business Meeting – Today, November 18 after morning service we will have a church business meeting.  At this meeting we will discuss and vote on our 2019 Church Budget.  We also will have some other items of business on the agenda.


Hope Center Toy Drive – We will be collecting toys for the Hope Center’s 2018 Christmas Toy Giveaway.  Put your toy in the collection barrel in the foyer by Sunday, December 9.  They say their most urgent need is for larger toys for boys and girls ages 1-12.  They like to give every child 1 large gift rather than several small stocking stuffers.


“Let All You Do Be Done in Love”

1 Corinthians 16:14

Wednesday Night Study – On Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm, we are conducting an 8 week study for adult men and women entitled “Victory in Spiritual Warfare” by Dr. Tony Evans.  We will watch a 30 minute video and then have a group discussion time led by the Pastor of what was taught.  If you want a member’s book which has a listening guide and daily studies to enhance the study, you may order them on Amazon.com.  (It is the Bible study guide.)


Grave Plots Available – Our church has been gifted 8 cemetery plots at Valhalla Cemetery.  The church is selling them for a total cost of $1600 for a pair on a first come first served basis with the proceeds going into the Benevolence Fund.  If interested, contact Kevin Shelton, the Trustee Chairman at 618-444-3731, or Brad Gaines, Trustee Member at 618-531-6634.


Choir Practice – We will have choir practice after the Thanksgiving Service on Tuesday, November 20 at 7:30 pm.  We will not have choir practice on Wednesday this week.


Victory in Spiritual Warfare – We will have an option to do the Victory in Spiritual Warfare study.  It will be on Sunday nights at 7:00 pm.  Tonight we will do Session 1.  Anyone who missed last Wednesday’s study can view session 1 tonight.


Welcome to the WABC Family! – We want to welcome Kyra Sue Chandler.  She was born November 9th and was 7 pounds 4 ounces and 21 inches long.  Congratulations to Mom and Dad Geoffrey & Jennifer Chandler, Grandma and Grandpa Mark & Kathy Rogozienski, and big brother Corben Chandler.
