We have some important dates coming up!
February 28. By popular demand, our Carry-in Dinners are resuming this coming Sunday. As always, they are strictly voluntary, but very enjoyable. If you are able to stay after church and join in the food and fellowship, bring a dish (preferably with food in it) to share with everyone else who stays.
March 8. Men’s Fellowship (but it is not just for men anymore!). After a year’s hiatus, the area fellowships are starting back again. The purpose of the evening is to enjoy a great meal with folk from other churches in our camp area, have a time of worship through song, hear a dynamic sermon from Brandon Llewellyn, and get an update on camp. We will also receive an offering to help the camp continue their ministry. As of this writing, we have three people from Camp Point signed up to eat and five people signed up to fix the meal. That’s not a bad ratio if you are one of the eaters. We may have from 50 – 75 people from other churches join us for the evening. Be sure to sign up to eat, cook, set up and clean up, and enjoy a wonderful evening.
By the way, guys, here are two great opportunities to take your wife out to dinner and look like a hero. You can even offer to carry the food in on Sunday and look like a winner to everyone who is watching.
April 4. Easter Sunday. Who knows what the weather might bring on Easter this year. But regardless of the weather, we will be here. We will not have Sunday school on Easter Sunday. Instead, we will have a carry-in breakfast at 8:30 followed by our regular morning service at 10:00. Interestingly, the first Easter meal was in the evening, not in the morning. You can find the story of it in Luke 24:13-43. First, at a meal with the two men who were from Emmaus, Jesus took bread, blessed it, broke it, and gave it to them. Then later in the day he ate broiled fish with his disciples. Through the years, churches have had their Easter meals in the morning rather than late afternoon or evening. We will have ours at 8:30. We invite you to join us.
April 25. We will celebrate our 185th Anniversary. We have a full day planned. Again, no Sunday school that morning. Our worship will be at 10:00. Dr. Dinelle Frankland will lead our music (we plan to sing only songs that were written before 1835) and Greg Lee will bring the message. We will serve lunch in the basement, and then about 1:00 or 1:30 Dr. Frankland will lead a time of worship through music. (I can tell you from experience that you will thoroughly enjoy being a part of this service.) Then, John Puckett will preach at our afternoon service, with Dr. Frankland once again leading our music.
We have some exciting events coming up. We hope you plan to be part of them as you are able.
