Food Pantry Needs

  Children look forward to Summertime each year.               Unfortunately, some families struggle to feed their children during the summer months. This is usually our busiest time of helping families in need. Our food pantry is in need of more non-perishable items, such as canned goods, cereals, pasta, etc. If you feel led to donate, please place the bagged items in the pantry. Thanks for being His hands for our community! 


Women’s Bible Study
A new Bible study for ladies will begin on Sunday evenings beginning Aug. 12th. A Woman Overwhelmed is a 6 week study that teaches about exchanging our overwhelming lives for God’s overwhelming love! As we learn to let go of our to-do lists and place more trust in God, we’ll recognize that God is always working through our circumstances. Workbooks can be purchased at Lifeway, at, or ordered through the church office. A sign-up sheet has been placed on the Information Board for anyone interested in taking this journey with us. 


Blessing Box  
We have great news! Our Blessing Box on Sebrell St. has been discovered! The box was placed near a path that some of our homeless community uses. Blessing Bags and other items are being placed in the box. Each bag is prayed over and contains a tract that teaches about the love of Jesus. Items such as lip balm, wipes, crackers, toothbrushes & paste, soap,   shampoo, Band-Aids, etc. are all greatly needed for our homeless community. If you would like to donate, items can be dropped off in the church office or you can fill a bag and place it in the Blessing Box yourself. 


A Night of Hope”  
Sisters of Grace will present “A Night of Hope” on Saturday, Nov. 3rd, 2018. The Staybridge Suites of Florence has donated their banquet room for this year’s banquet. We are excited to be able to reach out to more women through this blessing! The proceeds of this year’s women’s banquet will go to The House of Hope to help the women and children that they minister to. Please sign up on the Information Board if you would like to host and decorate a table. There will be an informational meeting on Sunday, July 29th at 5:15pm for all ladies who are interested. Please contact Stephanie if you can not make the meeting. 

As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.  Psalm 71:14
