Our worship services will begin at 9:00 and 10:30 a.m., but why don't you also join us for one of our new Life Groups, which kick off this Sunday (see class options below). The groups meet simultaneous with our worship services, also at 9:00 and 10:30, in Building C. Children's activities are also provided during both services.
Church Picnic & Baptism, June 5
You and your family are invited to join us for our annual Shelby Crossings gathering at Oak Mountain State Park in Pelham, coming up Sunday afternoon, June 5. We'll be in the Sandpiper pavilion near the beach, convenient for an afternoon of swimming, canoeing, fishing, hiking or just hanging out on the beach with friends. It promises to be a great day of fun, food and fellowship with your Shelby Crossings family.
We'll also be celebrating baptism in the lake, so if you've trusted Jesus as your Savior and would like to publicly testify to your faith through being baptized, please let us know. Begin now inviting your friends to be with us for this special day, and be on the look-out for a sign-up sheet at the Welcome Table in the coming weeks for what you can bring for our picnic dinner.
Vacation Bible School, July 11-15
Mark your calendars and begin now inviting your friends to join us for our 2015 Shelby Crossings Vacation Bible School, coming up Monday through Friday, July 11-15, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. If you are interested in serving in this exciting ministry to the families of our community, contact children's and preschool minister Shellyn Poole. Begin now inviting the kids from your neighborhood to be a part of this fun week. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
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).
Men's Ministry Service Projects
Our TCASC men's ministry is looking for some local hands-on mission service projects for the spring and summer. We are hoping to do a MetroChangers building project for a needy family in Birmingham, but would like to also find a need we could meet closer to our own community. If you know of a ministry, or a family, that would be an opportunity for us to serve together, please let us know.
Opportunities to Serve Your Church
Want to get involved in ministry at Shelby Crossings? As our church continues to grow, so too do the needs, especially since with the addition of a second worship service in the last year. That means more opportunities to serve the Lord through our church. We have several needs for volunteers for are looking for a place to serve, and we'd love to get you plugged in. Here's a list of a few of our immediate needs:
If you would be interested in serving in any of the above areas, or in another area not listed, please let the staff know and we'll try to get you connected.
