Wanted: Nursery helpers. Bethany Johns, our nursery coordinator, needs more ladies to be a part of the nursery rotation in the 11:00 am service. If 5 or more ladies can sign up that would be a help! Your daughters can also work if they are 13 or older. Hopefully, with more people, it will be once a month or less. Email Bethany to help.

Our Sacrifice: Service
What kind of sacrifices please God? Pastor Jack shared from Hebrews 13:15-19 that faith will cultivate a desire to bring pleasure to God. Through Jesus, we can offer sacrifices of praise, doing good and sharing with fellow believers, submission and obedience to our church shepherd-leaders, and prayer for our shepherd-leaders. Listen to “Our Sacrifice: Service.”
