Pray First:  21-Days of Prayer  Initiative

On Monday, Jan. 10th we started a 21-Days of Prayer Initiative.  During these 21 Days, we are taking time to draw close to God both personally and corporately.  When we pursue God’s Presence in prayer with greater intensity and intention, we see Him move in our lives in significant ways!  We encourage you to join in each day by getting the  "Pray First" Prayer Guide.    Printed Versions of the prayer guide are available in our church office . Click here to get a downloadable version of the 21-Day Prayer Guide.   Join us on this prayer adventure as we plant the seeds for God to bring a great harvest in our personal lives, our families, our church and our community!

Heart & Soul

Please join us for our first Heart and Soul Prayer Gathering of 2022 on Monday, January 17th at 6:30pm in the sanctuary.  Steve and Billy will be leading us in a powerful time of worship and strategic corporate prayer as we seek God together for this coming year. We hope you will join us, especially during this time of our church-wide “Pray First 21-Days of Prayer” initiative, as we come together to believe big and ask boldly for our God to show His glory and transform our lives! It’s time to pray through for a breakthrough.  As Mark Batterson, author and Senior Pastor of National Community Church states, “Revival happens on God’s terms and in God’s timing, but there are things we can do to set the table and prayer is one of those essential things.”

New Community Hour Classes

Three new short-term Community Hour Classes are starting  on Sunday Morning, January 30th.  

Engaging God’s Word  (Teachers: Elise Halsten & Sonia Banks)
The Bible is a book about God; it’s alive, simple, and yet multi-layered. It is about the past and yet relevant today and prophetic for tomorrow. God speaks to us personally through his Word and by his Spirit. This 8-week class is geared for those who feel overwhelmed and would like help going deeper in connecting with God through his Word. We hope to empower you to read God’s Word to grow in your intimacy with God.
Come join Elise Hallsten and Sonia Banks, as together we practice “Engaging God's Word.”  This Class starts on January 30th at 11:00 a.m. in the Education Building, Room #201.

100 Yard Dash (Teachers: John & Jerri Doctor)
Every tombstone has dates of birth and death separated by a ‘DASH.’  We are all guaranteed a date of birth and a date of death that we have little control over.  The dash that is between them is dependent on what you chose to do with it and determines your eternity.  This Bible Study  has been developed to help you with the process of growing in the area of discipleship by moving from knowledge of Christ to a relationship with Him.  This is an 8-week class that covers subjects such as:  Discipleship, A Relay Race and You Have the Baton; Foundations of Discipleship, the Fruit of the Spirit; Standing in the Gap, The Art of Spiritual Swordsmanship and many more.  Join John and Jerri during the 11:00 am Sunday Community Hour starting January 30th in Education Rm #205.

People Fuel (Teacher: Randy Coleman)
Randy Coleman will be teaching a new short term Community Hour Class on a new book by Dr. John Townsend called People Fuel.  Many of us unknowingly walk around with relational deficits.  We are surrounded by people at work and at home, but the question is do we have the right types of relationships in our lives.  The right kinds of relationships supply the nutrients you need to live a healthy, energized, and productive life.  In this study, you will learn 22 relational nutrients that we all need for growth and maturity.  This new class starts Sunday, January 30th at 9:15am in the Education Rm #201.

Baptism Sunday

Our next Baptism Sunday is coming up  January 30th.   If you would like to experience water baptism, or if one of your children is interested, please call the church office (321) 269-6702 or click this sign up link to get your name on the list and receive instructions on how to participate.
