3-2-1-Liftoff

This Sunday, after an extended delay, our Contemporary Service will be relaunching in the Social Hall. There have been a lot of changes that have gone into the service. There’s a new order of worship, a new way of collecting the offering, and a new pastor. There have been improvements made to the wiring and lights, and the soundboard...

Continued Hold on Countdown

If you weren’t in worship Sunday, I announced that we’d be another week (at least) in the relaunch of our contemporary service. We’re enjoying being together for now, as Trevor has done the  special music, along with Kendra and the choir one week, and preached another. But we’re still working to resolve the aftereffects of the freezer going...

Starting in Prayer

 You may remember, the Thursday after we moved to Tifton, we held a prayer service in the sanctuary. I said that I wanted to start our ministry here in prayer, and not with me preaching. We had a service at the same time the next June, but didn’t last year due to COVID. We didn’t come back to in-person...
