It's Time to Ring Some Bells Again

It's that time of year again and the Salvation Army needs our help. As times have gotten tougher, there's more demand on the services they provide to the Greenville area.

We will be manning the kettle at the Greenville WalMart on Saturday December 3, 2011 from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm. Two or more volunteers are needed for each one hour time slot.

The Christmas kettle effort is the Salvation Army's largest fundraising endeavor, accounting for a third of their annual budget.

Regular Monthly Congregational Prayer Meeting to Start

On Sunday October 2, 2011 at 6:00 pm there will be a congregational prayer meeting instead of Bible Study. This will be the regular practice for the first Sunday of each month. The Elders believe that it is the Lord’s will for our church to give corporate (i.e. group, congregational) prayer a more prominent place in church life. All are urged to plan to attend. It will be exciting to see how God will work in deeper and fuller ways in our midst as we as a congregation obey His call to more fervent prayer.

Do you have loved ones you long to see saved? Do you long to see God glorify Himself in our communities through the gospel going forth? Do you long to see a deeper faith, love, and holiness among us as the people of God? Do you want our Savior Jesus to see the fruit of His sacrificial death on the cross as His church prospers in our day? Then let us join together to pray, believing that God will bless, because He has both commanded us in His Word to pray and promised to bless the prayers of His gathered people.
