Minister Appreciation

On October 22, we will celebrate Minister Appreciation Day! We will honor them as a church and provide baskets in the foyer for individual notes and gifts!  We can honor our ministerial staff  DAILY by remembering to do these things:

 

Remember your leaders who have spoken God’s word to you. As you carefully observe the outcome of their lives, imitate their faith… Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account, so that they can do this with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you. Pray for us; for we are convinced that we have a clear conscience, wanting to conduct ourselves honorably in everything.   (Hebrews 13:7,17-18)

  1. Pray for them.
  2. Imitate their faith.
  3. Follow their lead.

 

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is back again this year.  The Christmas Child Shoe boxes are available here at the church in the foyers and church office.

This year they ask that no toothpaste or candy be included because of the problems with customs in the different countries.

Return the shoe boxes to the church office by November 15th and they will be delivered to the drop off point for you.

See You At The Pole

For the over 25 years, See You at the Pole has been about one simple act—prayer. SYATP is still about students uniting themselves in prayer before God interceding for their generation.

There are two opportunities to unite in prayer with your friends:

  • DAY: SEE YOU AT THE POLE day is on Wednesday, September 27, at 7:00 a.m. local time. All around the globe, in every time zone, students will be gathering at their flagpoles, praying for their school, friends, families, churches, and communities. SEE YOU AT THE POLE is a day committed to global unity in Christ and prayer for your generation.
  • WEEK: The GLOBAL WEEK OF STUDENT PRAYER (Sunday, September 24 through Saturday, September 30) encourages students to find new and unique ways, places, and times to pray throughout the week. Whether you attend PUBLIC SCHOOL, PRIVATE SCHOOL, or HOME SCHOOL, gather your friends wherever and whenever and pray! The GLOBAL WEEK OF STUDENT PRAYER is dedicated to prayer and launching your on-campus Bible clubs, prayer strategies, and student ministries.
