I want to thank all of you who stepped up during the service this Sunday to help Mr. Taylor. You kept us calm during a frightening situation. I want to thank all of our medical professionals and first responders for what you do daily to help in our community.  We praise the Lord he has called you to serve in this way.

     Do not forget that this Sunday Evening will be our children’s and adult choir Christmas program beginning at 5:30 p.m. Both of these groups have spent this fall semester working on two great programs for our enjoyment. You certainly do not want to miss out on these wonderful programs so please plan on attending. We will also take up an offering this Sunday evening and everything will go to the Lottie Moon offering.


Thanks for all who helped with Lottie’s Soup Kitchen this past Sunday. We raised $1,147 from the soups this Sunday, and our grand total so far for the Lottie Moon offering is $25,036 . We want to try to raise more than $30,000 for Lottie Moon this year so please if you have not given anything to Lottie Moon yet consider giving to the cause of International Missions.


In Christ,

Brother Ty


First off, I need to give a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped out with Breakfast With Santa! We could not have made it run as smooth as it did without each and every one of you! We had about 190-200 people that came through the doors of the ROC (about 15 family want to know more about the church) and then if you add in all the workers, we topped out at around 220-225! That is amazing! Thank you again! 


This Wednesday we are continuing our Unwrapped series. Throughout this series, we are looking at the different types of gifts that the wise men gave Jesus. Last week we looked at the gold and how that was a gift for Jesus the King. This week we are looking at frankincense and how it reflects Jesus as High Priest! It is going to be a great night of worship and I cannot wait to see the students there!


This Saturday night, from 6-9, is another movie night at our house! We will be watching Elf, drinking hot chocolate and eating some snacky food! Hope to see the students there!

”I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.” Psalm 122:1

Thank you, Turner and Meredith for a beautiful worship song. And, thank you congregation and choir for adding your voices to worship. Thank you for trying and singing a new song last Sunday morning.


Next Sunday morning, Debbie Carpenter will sing “Breath of Heaven.” Sunday night, we will get to see and hear our Children’s choir and then the Adult choir present their music presentations for worship. The children will sing at 5:30 and the adults will sing following the children. It’s going to be an evening full of Christmas worship. Be sure and invite your friends.


I really appreciate our WOM and all the work they do to promote missions causes. “Lottie’s Soup Kitchen” was another huge success. The food was awesome. Thank you, ladies!

                                                                    Blessings to you all,

                                                                    Bro. Bob

2020 Calendar Prep


Committee Chairs…..Don’t  forget to get dates of tentative activities planned by your committee to Bro. Ty. 

We are trying to prepare a calendar to have less overlapping of events.


Locking & Lights


Since Pearl is not able to unlock & lock the doors & turn off lights anymore, we need everyone’s help in turning off lights. Every Sunday, there are many classrooms with the lights left on. You can be a big help to those who are locking doors. If you are the last one out of a room, turn the lights off!
