"Pure Joy!"
A praise report for Ollie
Ollie has undergone a very specialized surgery to remove a rare form of cancer from her liver and abdomen. We are told the surgery went very well and she is recovering as expected.
Thank you for your prayers and outpouring of gifts toward Ollie and family. You may continue to give to help with costs of this to Baby Olive's Get Well Fund.
Contact the church office at 727 599-4555 for more information. Please feel free to pass this along. I will send an update as soon as I can. Also look for updates online at Facebook.
May the Lord bless the prayers of His Church!

Weekly Sunday Worship
at 9 a.m. FEBRUARY 21, 2021
Beginning a new study in Paul's Letter to the Colossians. Paul begins his letter with encouragement telling those in Colossae that they are "Confirmed in the Faith" because they have believed the gospel. He reminds them and us that we never move beyond this hope filled message of the gospel. We don't graduate from it to anything "next level" or otherwise. Yet we do move more deeply into this gospel. We learn to repent more deeply for our sin and trust our loving God all the more over time! Give thanks to God the Father!

ADULT Men's study of the Trinity and Women's study of "The Epistle of James."
YOUTH Teen's study the New City Catechism
CHILDREN Bible memorization, gospel.

You are welcome to join some of the other regular folk for 15 minutes of prayer for our worship. Located in the Upper Room south side opposite the Youth Room.

  • Praise God for a successful surgery for Dave/Dede Perron's grand-daughter Ollie! Continue to pray for Ollie/parents Nick/Mikaela/Dave/Dede, treatment for Ollie and wisdom for doctors.
