Thursday Night Prayer Meeting

Beginning Thursday June 6, and every Thursday thereafer at 7 PM, we will be having an all church prayer meeting to pray for our church, our congregation and for the new pastor that God has for us. Please join us...Prayer works!
Matthew 18:20 : "For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.”

Men's Study Group 
Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another. (Proverbs 27:17 )

⇒ Normally, on the fourth Saturday of each month we meet at 9 AM at the church for a breakfast, fellowship, and a study discussion.   Be sure to join us for breakfast, an inspiring presentation and great fellowship. Our meetings are open to all men, young and old. Invite a friend or neighbor. 

Our next meeting is Saturday July 20.  We will meet at Dave Dewar's house for breakfast followed by a great time of fellowship as we help set up for the annual picnic and baptism on Sunday July 21.

Bring a friend!  

Experience great fellowship with like-minded men, and interesting discussions about how to live a more Christlike life. You can also look forward to exciting group outings several times a year. On March 10, 2018 we attended an exciting men's conference held at the Gaylord E-Free Church. What a great conference it was. We had 16 men from 3 local churches attend. 
***All men welcome: Teens through adult*** 

Carving Club:

Our 'wood carving club' meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month at noon (at the church building).  Beginning and experienced wood carvers are welcome and there is even some equipment and projects for beginners.  If you have questions or need more information -- talk with Wade Davis, Steve Detmer, or Dave Dewar.
Note: The carving club will not meet for the remainder of the Summer.

Craft Group:

Coming Wednesday June 12th..."Faith Works" craft group. 
Calling all crafters:
Beginning Wednesday June 12, 2019, the craft group “Faith Works” will meet on the second and fourth Wednesdays  from 9 am to approximately noon to create crafts for charity. Everyone is welcome. At our first meeting we’ll take a little time to talk about the purposes of the group and discuss some ideas that we have for it.  And we want to hear your ideas too. For this first meeting we’ll be making some things for Operation Christmas Child, but we will also make things for other organizations in the future. If  you’re a sewist, bring your machine and sewing supplies. We will have an iron and ironing board and cutting mats.   We’ll be working on drawstring bags and pillowcase dresses. For those of you who don’t sew, bring your favorite craft and an idea for a charity item. Example: if you knit or crochet, there are soap bags and washcloth patterns; if you make jewelry then bracelets or jewelry kits are a good craft for the shoeboxes. And if you feel that you’re not ‘crafty’ come anyway to learn something new. You can always string a ribbon through the top of a drawstring bag, or braid jump ropes from t-shirt strips!
If you have questions contact Deb Watts, Nancy Wells, or Alice Sturm


Women's Ministry:

As we take a brief journey to humanize the Apostle Paul and follow his journeys across several continents, we will find many reasons to study what we are reading in scripture.  We can gloss over the many places and names, but we will miss much of the meaning of this man’s colossal efforts on behalf of spreading Christianity across the globe of the Ancient World.

‘Ask for wisdom and it shall be given you’ is found throughout the Bible, but if we give this phrase some thought – we’ll find that learning as we read can be quite delightful and fascinating.  Paul began as a villain and ended as a martyr and a saint – what a magnificent journey for a single life to have lived.
If we are to have a continual and growing relationship with our Lord, Jesus Christ, we must do a little digging to put wings on his words. We must dig a little and find out how these words and their meaning managed to fly to Rome, be planted in many churches in myriad places, and then return to the what we call the Holy Land for all time.

So, please join with me on June 8 at 10 amfor an adventure in New Testament history.  A fine brunch will be provided by those who promised to bring a breakfast dish and a ‘sweet treat’ last month.  Will those who promised to furnish brunch last month please contact me – Shirley -  at 348-5132 or
snoocks02@gmail.comto confirm if you can still do so again.


 Prayer Requests: 

We as a church believe in the power of prayer.  If you have a need that you would like us to join you in praying for, or if you have a praise report that we can celebrate with you, please let us know.  The Elders feel that it is a great privilege to pray for the needs of the congregation and have extended that privilege to the church body through the use of the Prayer Request Form.  It allows you to choose to have just the Elders pray for you, or to have your prayer request shared with the congregation through the email newsletter.  Here's what you need to do:

  • Fill out a Prayer Request Form (found in the prayer request basket), indicating whether it is a private (Elders only) or public request. Public prayer requests should be for you or for a close family member, again to protect privacy. 
  • If you choose to email a prayer request, send it to Pastor Dave at ( indicating if it is a private or public request. For public prayer requests that occur after Sunday let the church office know by Thursday noon if you want it included in the Friday newsletter.  If you want the pastor to call you please indicate that and include your phone number. 
  • Public prayer requests will appear in Friday's newsletter for one week, unless you indicate otherwise. 
  • Remember that praise reports are encouraging to the church, so be sure to tell us about how God is working in your life!
