Coming Events

Teens Leave For Youth Camp Monday

Monday morning, our young people, grades 6-12, will be heading to a great week of camp! This is potentially the most important week of the year for them, spiritually speaking. There is still time to register for camp; contact Andy Young today. If you would like to help send someone to camp, any amount will be a blessing. You can write “camp” in the other line on a tithing envelope or via our church communication app, Realm Connect.

VBS Volunteers

Vacation Bible School begins just two weeks from Monday, July 26-30. There are so many ways you can volunteer to help – decorations to cut out, crafts to prepare, and supplies to procure. There will be a decoration night on Thursday, July 22 and preparation days as well. We also need an army of volunteers to help during VBS. If you would like to help, contact Emma DaShiell. The deadline to be guaranteed a T-shirt is today. We are so excited to see how the Lord will work in the lives of the children who come and their families!

VBS Cookies

If you would be willing and able, pick up a package or two of cookies the next time you go to the grocery store and drop them off at the church office or in the box at the four corners for VBS. Thanks for your help!

VBS Canvassing

Join us during our GROW Outreach times or pick up a map and brochures from the table in the lobby with a block or two marked for you to take flyers to the families on those streets. Thank you for your help!

The Deluge Water Extravaganza

Join us for the Deluge on Friday, August 13! Come for a night of 22 foot water slides, water balloons, slip and slides and so much more!

Preschool and elementary will gather in the back yard of the Catalpa house while the teens will have their own deluge behind the Oak Grove house with water gun fights, slip and slide kickball, and so much more! Both locations accessible from the church parking lot.

Register today going to or texting “water” to 417.889.1999

Camp & VBS Prayer Calendar

Use this calendar to pray that the Lord would work through these special events to reach many children and young people with the Gospel, and those who are already saved will be encouraged and strengthened in their walk with the Lord.

Wednesday Night Next Steps

New people are coming each week to Wednesday Next Steps! These classes are designed to help every believer CONNECT to the Lord and this church; GROW in their walk with the Lord and SERVE the Lord in every stage of their Christian life. There are three classes available: First Step; Second Step; and the Next Step class. There is also a Next Step Choir rehearsal where the choir will meet, and also have the opportunity to grow through the Next Step teaching. Come and take the Next Steps in your Christian life this Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
