Glorifying God...Expanding His Kingdom

Weekly Announcements

From the April 21, 2019 Bulletin


Happy Easter!  He is Risen!


 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.


Centrifuge Youth Fundraiser – Please feel free to pick an envelope off the board in the entry hallway that has an amount already written on it.  If you would please place that amount in the white envelope and put it in the offering, all that money will go towards our youth Centrifuge account.  We will be collecting until the envelopes are all gone, or at least until May.  Thank you for all of your support and generous donations!


Children’s Choir – Children’s choir has started again on Wednesday nights at 6:30pm in the choir room.  In order to build up the group, I am going to try and include pre-school with the older children.  If your child is already attending children’s activities on Wed. nights, please encourage them to come early.  Music is an awesome way to learn about God and to share the message!


Easter Egg Hunt – The annual Easter Egg Hunt will be today following the morning worship service.  Today is the last day to bring bags of small, wrapped candy for the eggs.


Baby Dedication – We will have a special baby dedication ceremony during the morning worship service on Sunday, May 5.


Annie Armstrong Easter Offering – We are collecting the annual Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions.  Our goal this year is $500.  You may give until next Sunday.


“Let All You Do Be Done in Love”

1 Corinthians 16:14

Grave Plots Available – Our church has been gifted 8 cemetery plots at Valhalla Cemetery.  The price has been reduced to $600 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.


Potluck – We will have a “Family Recipes” themed potluck next Sunday, April 28th at 5:30 pm.  Join us for a fun time with your church family and bring your favorite family recipe to share with others.


Business Meeting – We will have our Quarterly Business Meeting next Sunday at 6:15 pm following the potluck.


Thank You for Serving in Worship Today!
