Grant Carr, Vivi Garafola, Piper Haskins, Will Reddien, Elijah Sower, Levi Sponsel, Braden Stivers, Sammy Tarkington, Jennifer Sower, Diane Fender, and Vance Lahey have all taken on a week full of service and we hope they have some fun too!
Sisters in Spirit has resumed their Friday morning meetings in the church parlor from 10:30-11:15 AM, with a zoom option.

Our new study is a book by Sarah Bessey, Miracles and Other Reasonable Things: A Story of Learning and Unlearning God. Sarah is the key leader for the Montreat Women’s Connection 2022, August 12 - 14. Those of us planning to attend this conference are excited about getting to know Sarah through her writing ahead of the conference. And those who will not be attending can participate too through reading this book! We would love to have you join our small group for this study. Contact Martha Johnson, Cindy Blackburn or Janice Eddlemon for more info.

If you are interested in the Montreat conference, contact Kim Joiner. We have rented two houses and love to help women experience this paradise on earth for the first time!
Worship Flowers
Do you enjoy the worship flowers each Sunday? We have many open dates for you to donate flowers in memory or in honor of or in celebration or thanksgiving for anyone or anything. These worship flowers are then broken down into smaller arrangements on Mondays and delivered to members of our congregation as a reminder of God’s love and our prayers. We also donate a rosebud for the new births of our members. Click here to sign up today.
We thank you for your most recent donation of $6,262.25. Because you give, small acts of faith and kindness have been transformed into something powerful and life-changing. Because of your gift we can build upon the 35 years of successfully connecting participants to long-term solutions with the ultimate goal of finding sustainable income and permanent housing.
