2021 Bible Reading Plan
In 2021 we want to embark upon a churchwide Bible reading plan through reading the New Testament together in a year.
  • Our plan, developed by Navigators, is 5 minutes a day, 5 days a week, and includes 5 core observations to guide your Bible reading time.
  • Our discipleship staff and leadership will integrate elements of the weekly reading into our Sunday School lessons, Student and Children’s ministries.
  • Our hope is that this reading plan will be a tool that will encourage you in your personal and family devotions, as well as provide an accessible tool for you as you find new opportunities for discipling relationships within our church and community.
 
See this link for a pdf of the reading plan or to request a paper copy contact Chase McLain.  
Pastor Search Committee
The pastor search committee began meeting on November 8 and plans to meet weekly throughout the search process. A chair (Jean Roberson) and vice-chair (Jennifer Sykes) were selected. The search committee is currently drafting a survey and scheduling listening sessions to hear church members' thoughts as we draft a candidate profile for the Senior Pastor position. As we move forward, your prayers are appreciated.
