Kid's Stuff

W3...will be starting back for the fall on Wednesday night, Sept. 2, from 6:30 to 8:00 in the Kids Crossings Building (Bldg. A). This time of focusing on "Word, World and Wacky games" is for children in kindergarten through 6th grade.

Students for Hire

Several of our youth are seeking opportunities to earn money to pay for our Winter Retreat, coming in December. If you have yard work, painting, cleaning, babysitting or any other reasonable chore you would like to hire an able-bodied student to perform, contact youth pastor Dean Shirley and he will help you get someone scheduled. 

Supply Drive for Firehouse Shelter

We are collecting supplies for the men of the Firehouse Shelter from September 3 through October 15.  We will be collecting shampoo, white towels & bedsheets & washcloths, toothbrushes, etc. for the men in the shelter.  There will be a table in the worship center where you can buy & donate.  We will be handing out paper bags for the children of the W3 to fill with supplies and bring on Wednesday nights.  For more info, contact Tanya Smith or Jim Beckner.

Worship Night and Reception for Hopes, Sept. 13

Those who were with us on Sunday during our congregational meeting heard the news that our worship pastor Robert Hope will be leaving in late September to move his family to Australia. We are saddened at losing Robert and Holly and the kids, but excited how the Lord is leading in their lives, and encouraged by their example of faithful obedience. (See note from Robert below.)

We are planning a special night of worship on Robert's last Sunday with us, onSept. 13, at 6:00 p.m., followed by a reception for the Hopes to express our love and appreciation for their ministry at Shelby Crossings. Plan to be with us for this time to honor the Lord in worship, and to bless the Hopes and join together to pray for them. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
