Missionary George Zarris and his wife, Barbara, will be our special guests! They are with Christian Radio International and go around the world helping other churches and ministries get the Gospel out through  television, internet, radio, and many other media outlets. They were such a blessing when they were with us for last year’s sharathon and we know they will be this year as well.

We are also honored that missionary Tommy Sloan with be with us as well! He is a veteran missionary to Mexico and is involved not only in church planting, but also in reaching people through radio with Compassion Radio. We are excited to hear about his ministry and vision he has there in Mexico!

You are not going to want to miss a single minute of this year’s sharathon. Keep your radio dialed to 90.1 FM and be praying about what you can give this year to help keep our radio station on the air!

Parent’s Appreciation Day, September 24

Parent’s Appreciation Day is Sunday, September 24. This is always a special time for us each year! Parents Appreciation Day was one of Pastor Dobson’s (our founding pastor) favorite days here at the church! Many parents will come with their children and some will get saved. What a blessing!

We will enjoy a parade, great music, and an inspiring message from the Word of God. The children love this day as they get to be in the parade with signs and balloons representing their class. It’s always a joy to see! Our main goal for this special day each year is to honor each parent and let them know how much they are appreciated and loved.

We will have a nice lunch prepared for all visiting parents and their families in the gymnasium following the morning service. Please join us this Sunday for a great day!
