2019 Evangelism Team – Evangelism is welcoming new visitors to our church, but it is also helping prepare all those who attend to make a commitment, or renew their commitment to Jesus Christ--to become disciples for Christ. This means helping them to become Christians, to grow as Christians, and to serve as Christian disciples for Jesus. With a gentle thought in mind, “We are here to be a light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill”. Please join the Evangelism Team. For sign-up and questions, contact Sis. Susie Collins, Chair.

Youth Have you been wondering how you could get involved? Your services are needed on Wednesday nights to prepare and serve food to our youth during the year. Signing up will also provide an opportunity for you to get to know and build relationships with our young people. Dinner is served at 6:30 pm each Wednesday. Please give your name to Deaconess Franklin, Skinner, or Gilliam and all details will be provided. Thank you for responding to this opportunity to serve.
