As always, we will need as many of you that would like to participate to help make this a succes! Decorate a trunk with your family, Sunday School class, friends, you name it! Such a fun way to reach out to the children and families of not only our church, but our community as well! Church participation is key!

Raquel’s Wings for Life

Raquel’s Wings for Life hosted their last annual bicycle ride on Saturday, August 11, 2018, in Wise County (start and finish at the Decatur airport). Their goal is to raise money in support of their work in providing transportation (via airplane) to cancer patients travelling to either Houston or Tulsa for treatment.

In 2017, our Church staffed 3 water and snack stops for the bike riders. We were asked in 2018 to staff the 3 rest stops again, in addition to providing a few motorcyclists to check the ride route throughout the morning as the riders move through the county.

Ashley Craven coordinated the rest stop staffing and Pastor Brian the motorcyclists. Volunteers are needed each year, so please check back and watch for sign up sheets in the Narthex.

Dinner for 4

You have seen them nearly every Sunday — by the donuts in the Fellowship Hall, on the elevator, across the aisle in church. You may have even done the “help me with your name” thing.

But you don’t REALLY know them.

You know them well enough to nod and smile — and that’s about it. But being part of a church family has the potential for so much more!

Each group will share a meal once a month.

Home cooked. Pot luck. Restaurant. Dutch treat. Brown bag. Carry out.

Food. Fellowship. Fun. Family.

Check back for the next dinner schedule after summer.
