It’s Back To School Sunday

Please pray for all the students, parents and teachers as they get started in their new school year. All the students in attendance will receive a gift bag today from our church family to encourage them to shine for Jesus as they head back to school. Please pray that the Lord will bless them, keep them safe, and use them in their new circles of influence.

“Back To School Celebration” This Friday, August 27

We have a great night of fun planned for kids and teens! The evening will include pizza, games and activities, and even pony rides and a petting zoo! There is no cost for the event, but registration is required by texting “fun” to our church number, 417.889.1999.

Faith@Home Ministry Launches Next Sunday, August 29

We Our new Faith@Home ministry has the potential to impact every home, whether it is the home of a single person or single parent; married couple or family with kids; empty nesters or grandparents. The purpose of this ministry is to inspire every person in every home to intentionally strengthen their own personal faith in Christ by providing free, one step at a time tools for every season of life. Our Faith@Home Center will also make additional resources available.

Wednesday Next Steps

Wednesday Next Steps classes help every believer to 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. Take the Next Steps in your Christian life this Wednesday evening at 6:30.

Christmas Rehearsals Begin

Christmas rehearsals begin next Sunday, August 29th at 4:30 for the Adult Choir and Elementary Kids Choir. The Preschool Choir will continue to meet at 5:00.

Chapel Chair Project

We have been offered a matching gift to help purchase new chairs for the chapel. After last Sunday we already have more than 50 of the 75 chairs needed. If you would like to help, this is how it works:

We need 150 chairs for capacity in the chapel, so 75 people willing to provide 1 chair would cover all 150.

Each chair costs $70 – so if you give $70 to buy one chair, it’s actually buying 2!

You can give it in a lump sum, or $10 a week for seven weeks, or $35 this month and again next month would be great. If you desire to help, whatever would work for you will be just fine!

Using Realm online or envelope to give? Simply choose “other” and put “Chairs” in the memo line.
