We are quickly coming to an end of what has been a great summer series in the Adult Class on Wednesday evenings.  This coming Wednesday, James Dukes will lead the class in a discussion of one more of Jesus’ “Hard Sayings And Neglected Commands” as he discusses the topic “Take No Thought” based on Matthew 6:25-34.


We welcome the Dukes family (who have been worshipping with us for the past few months)  to our family as they have expressed their desire to serve with us under our shepherd’s oversight.  They are Jim & Stacie, Isaiah, Miriam, Rebecca & Anna.

Each year for the past several years, we have been saving our loose change to help with the support of the children who reside at Potter’s Children Home in Bowling Green, KY.  If you would like to help again this year, take one of the cans available on the table in the hallway and begin saving your change in it.  The deadline for returning the cans will be Nov. 10.


     Is church membership necessary to please God and be saved?  And what are my responsibilities as a member of the body of Christ? These are some of the questions Phil Sanders will consider in next week’s lesson, “A Member Of The Body.”  The televised program can be seen locally every Sunday at 7:30 a.m. on WTRF-TV, Ch. 7.
