Men’s Ministry Bible Study:

Goliath Must Fall | Winnning the Battle Against Your Giants

Pastor Louie Giglio uncovers a newfound twist in the classic story of David and Goliath. He shows how the key to living free from our giants is not better slingshot accuracy, but keeping our eyes on the one and only giant-slayer: Jesus. Put your hope in him, and watch Goliath fall. Food is involved. Wednesdays from 6:45-8:15 PM, downstairs in room 123.
First Aid Training (infant and adult) will be held on Saturday, September 29. Please contact Bob Andrews 804.690.2632 if you would like to attend.
MUMS | Moms Uplifting Moms
God is blessing our new MUMS ministry with a number of new moms that do not go to our church or to any church. With that blessing comes the need for additional Childcare Workers. MUMS meets 2 Mondays a month. We are having to turn away moms because we do not have enough Childcare workers. We have a need for 2-3 additional ladies to help. If you are able to help in any way, please contact Tami Jones, Jillian Kain, or Jessica Hunsucker.
