You and your family are invited to join us for worship this Sunday at The Church at Shelby Crossings. You'll be blessed by uplifting songs of praise and worship, and hear practical truth for real life as pastor Ken Letson kicks off a new message series from the apostle Paul's second epistle to Timothy, entitled "Keep the Faith." We will also have a time of prayer and dedication for our new deacons in the 10:30 service.
You have two choices for worship: at 9:00 and 10:30, and the services are identical in content, with both having options for children. In addition to our worship, at 9:00 we also have adult, college and youth Life Groups, children's Bible lessons and preschool Angel Choir. During the 10:30 service, we have an adult Life Group, and Pathway for children. A nursery is provided for both services.
Church Work Day, October 1
Looking for a practical "hands-on" opportunity to serve your church? Plan to join us on Saturday morning, Oct. 1, for our fall Church Work Day. We'll gather from 8 a.m. to 12 noon to clean up, spruce up and fix up our buildings and grounds to make our campus a great place to worship each week. Stay tuned for more details, or email our deacons for how you can help, or what you can bring.
Family Dedication, October 9
We will have a special time of family dedication for parents and their little ones during our 10:30 worship service on Sunday morning, Oct. 9. If you are the parent of a child who has never been publicly dedicated to the Lord and would like to participate--or if you know someone who would like to take part in this service--please contact Preschool and Children's Minister Shellyn Poole.
Connection Point, October 9
If you are interested in becoming a member of The Church at Shelby Crossings, or if you'd just like to know more about our beliefs and vision for ministry, you'll want to join us for our next Connection Point class, coming up Sunday night, Oct. 9, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The class, led by Pastor Ken Letson, is offered quarterly and is a necessary step for membership in our church. Pre-registration is requested. Sign up using your response card on Sunday, or email Pastor Ken if you want to register for the class. Childcare will be provided by reservation only, so if you plan to come and bring children, please let us know in advance.
Opportunities to Serve Others
Local Food Delivery
The city of Calera is seeking volunteers to pick up and deliver food to elderly citizens during the middle of the day. It would require picking up food at the Senior Citizen Center in the late morning, and delivering it to 12-15 people around the city. You can volunteer as an individual, or if we have enough who would like to help, we can take a day of the week as a church and cover that day each week. If you're interested, contact Pastor Ken, or if you need more information, you can contact Brandi at the city of Calera (668-3028).
