what's happening next?

 
 
 


We begin a new series this Sunday as we shift focus to the Christmas season.
Join us this Sunday as we take life lessons on love from the movie A Christmas Story.



Our monthly car clinic is this Saturday from 9am - 1pm.  If you or someone you know needs help with your vehicle, come on by.  It's FREE and our volunteers have a heart to help.  If you have knowledge about repairing automobiles, join the group.  They are always looking for help, and they will even teach you if you want to learn.


Our men get together every month for breakfast and a gospel presentation.  It's a great time to get to know other men at The House.  This month, men will meet on the second Saturday, December 8th at 8am.  Help us spread the word and be sure and invite a friend.


EVERYONE is invited to attend our annual Christmas party.  The date for the event is Sunday, December 9th.  The meal will be catered by Tammy D. Catering and will take place at the Reynold's Recreation Center gymnasium from 5 pm - 7 pm.  We will have fun for all ages, entertainment by our Rise youth, and of course our annual ugly sweater contest.  



Christmas is a season of giving.  We are partnering with a few organizations in our community to meet specific needs this holiday season.  Our kid's ministry is showing some love to our veterans by collecting toiletry items for the local VA.  Items needed are Axe body spray, toothpaste, deodorant and body wash.  These items will be collected now through Dec. 16th and delivered to the VA on December 19th by our kid's ministry.  We are also asking for preemie and newborn diapers to help restock the supply closet at our local DHS office.  Lastly, we are collecting NEW socks and shoes to donate to Restored Hearts and Soles.  This is a local organization that provides socks and shoes to kids in need throughout the year.  If you have toiletry items, diapers, socks, or shoes to donate, please bring them and drop them in the large wrapped box by the front door this Sunday.  

We are also partnering with Family Video again to provide holiday meals to those in need.  If you or someone you know would like a meal, please click here or fill out a connect card Sunday morning.  We can also help with toys for children as well.  
 

 

Early bird sign-up has begun for kid's camp.  We will attend camp July 22-25th at Camp Kid Jam in Denton, TX.  If you have a child going into 3rd grade - 6th grade next year, you will want to get them signed up soon.  Camp fills up fast, and the rates go up the later you sign up!  We need you to fill out a registration form in the family room and pay the $50 deposit to reserve their spot.  Deposits received before 1/31/19 will get the early bird rate of $277.  Deposits received after that will have a total due of $288 or more.  Contact Rebecca Self if you have any questions.   

 
If your child is in 1st - 6th grade and would like to be a part of a special presentation at our Christmas service they need to attend all practices. The next rehearsal is December 2nd from 3:30pm - 5:30pm at The House.  There will be a dress rehearsal Saturday, December 22nd at 12pm.  Your child must attend all practices to participate. Children in our 3-5 year old class will practice during church every week.    


The House Kids are also selling raffle tickets for a chance to win your choice of a Remington 700 rifle with scope package, a Mossberg 930 semi automatic 12 gauge shotgun, or a Mossberg 930 semi auto 12 gauge shotgun.  Tickets are $10 per ticket and the deadline to enter is 12/5/18.  Stop by their table in the family room Sunday or ask one of our kids in the 1st-6th grade class to purchase a chance to win.  They will draw for the winner on 12/9/18 during service, but you do not have to be present to win.  You do have to be able to pass a background check to receive the gun.  The money raised will go to help kids go to summer camp this year.  


 

Growth Track has ended for 2018.  We will begin again in January 2019.
