Today

Membership:

A New Members/Inquirers class has begun and is held concurrently with Sunday School. Class begins at 9:45 AM in the fellowship hall. Please see Pastor Eric for details.

Evening Worship:

An evening study will be held at the Watkins home beginning at 6pm. Please bring a filling dish as this will be a potluck-style meal. Children are welcome to attend as we seek to worship together as a covenant family.

Childcare:

While it is our desire to have our covenant children with us in worship, we also understand that small children may sometimes need to leave the sanctuary. Parents, please be encouraged to use the foyer briefly if needed or have your child stay with us in nursery or children’s worship during service. Please see the bulletin for age groups & locations.

Volunteers

Children’s Ministry:

Many “Thanks!” to Karen Erke and Melinda Provenza for their past service

coordinating volunteers for nursery and worship training. We now welcome and thank Tracy Wells for taking on both tasks. Current volunteers, please look for correspondence from Tracy for new schedules. Also, be sure to communicate through her if there is a need to swap nursery dates/times. We still welcome new volunteers as our body of covenant children continues to grow. Please contact Tracy Wells at smiley8kids@gmail.com if you wish to become a children’s volunteer.

Kitchen:

Terressa Duggan, church hostess, is asking for those led to help in the kitchen to contact her at terressaduggan@bellsouth.net or 904-687-4726. As we’ve grown, “Praise the Lord”, we need a few more helpers during events such as potluck dinners, celebrations, and special festivities. Thank you in advance!!
