The season of Lent is quickly coming to an end as we worship our way through Holy Week. We have opportunities to join together not only with our congregation but with other churches to worship. If you are able, we are collecting donations of eggs and candy for our annual Easter Egg hunt following the service on Easter morning.
Palm Sunday (April 2) 11:00 AM, worship in the sanctuary 6:00 PM, Community Passion Service presented by Grimes County Ministerial Fellowship (Faith Outreach Christian Center, 11596 Hwy 6 South)
Good Friday (April 7) 7:00 PM, worship in the sanctuary
Easter Sunday (April 9) 11:00 AM, worship in the sanctuary with Holy Communion followed by an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids. Please bring your Easter baskets for the hunt!
Our third outreach ministry with the Salvation Army for 2023 is Thursday, March 30th, 10:00-2:00. This gives us an opportunity to serve our community by connecting those in need with resources that we have available. To provide adequate hospitality we have needs for volunteers to be onsite serving in four areas. We will have a sign-in table, application helpers, lunch tables, and a clothes closet (upstairs). Sign-in table duties include welcoming guests and taking down names in order of arrival. Helping with the completion of applications requires someone to assist the certified Salvation Army representative by sitting with applicants to make sure all the information is filled out correctly. Two food tables will be set up for anyone who would like to make a lunch to take on the road or eat while they wait to be connected with Salvation Army services. Our clothes closet upstairs will be available for anyone who has a need for the clothes we have received as donations. Please register to serve HERE.
Upcoming dates for service: April 20 May 25 June 29
Our second chance to offer financial assistance through the Salvation Army for 2023 will be Thursday, February 23rd from 10:00 to 2:00. We were able to receive applications from 33 families in need last year. If you would like to serve during this mission opportunity please contact the church office!
