News & Bulletins
This Week’s Bulletin
Posted the Friday before each upcoming Sunday
Mid-Week Bible Study
Each week we will take a close look at something that has been in the news, and through the lens of Scripture, discover what lessons we can take from it as Christ’s disciples. We will begin with a look at the rescue and recovery response to hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Come with stories you heard on the news about the many ways people have jumped in to help.
Both the noon and the 4:30 p.m. groups will meet in the classroom in the Fellowship Center.

Please let the church office know by Monday, January 22, if you are coming and whether or not you will be bringing soup for the competition.
March 2-4 All Church Retreat 2018 – Holston Presbytery Camp. All are welcome. All Church Retreat Day Trip – Each year we have our church retreat in Banner Elk at our Presbytery camp. Sometimes it may be hard for folks to commit to coming up for the whole weekend. This year we are inviting folks to come up to spend Saturday with us. So you will have two options: stay at camp all weekend or come up on Saturday, March 3, for the day. This is a new way to get connected to our retreat and we hope to have a great number. The cost is only $30 which includes lunch and dinner. You will also get to participate in two sessions, sing some great songs, spend some time around camp, and connect to others in our church. If you are interested in coming up there will be a separate sign up available on January 21 in the foyer. Any and all questions can go to Russ at email@example.com. or 245-0104. Leave departure times will be shaped up once transportation is set. This will be communicated to you soon.
