Worship Guide | June 19, 2022

By Victoria Bailey

A Word from Our Pastor

Good morning, Church Family!

Thank you for all your love with the BIG wedding in our lives yesterday. Chris, Courtney, and all of us (as their families) were blessed by your love!

Also, Happy Father’s Day to all the dads with us today. May God use you as you nurture and train your children to follow the Lord Jesus.

This morning, we are continuing to journey down “Joseph’s Road.”Today we will see Joseph faced stop signs that warned him to run from temptation and sin. This is helpful, because we, too, face temptation, and the Bible says every temptation we face has already been faced by others. God is so faithful, however, that He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability to resist it. God, also, always gives us an escape route from temptation. In other words, whenever we are being tempted to sin, look around. God will have posted several evacuation routes just for you.

Let’s Encourage One Another,
Pastor Danny

We are looking for smiling faces to welcome families, students, and children to our facility. You can assist families with check-in, collect information from guests, and help guide visitors to the appropriate class or group.

We are currently in need of socks of all sizes. Also, we need people to sort through clothes donations. If you would like to help, contact Cleita Ferrell.

Good News Closet

We are providing cold water bottles at the Family Life Center for those in need during the summer.

There are two ways to help our bus ministry. First, you can drive a bus route. Second, you can pick someone up on your way to church. Don’t let the lack of transportation keep someone from experiencing the blessing of Christian fellowship. To help, contact the Church Office or Jeff Fitzhugh.

Nursery Workers.

We need volunteers for both worship services.
