Join Us This Sunday

You and your family are invited to join us for worship this Sunday at Shelby Crossings. You'll be inspired by uplifting songs of praise to God, and hear practical truth from his word. Our worship service begins at 10 a.m., but why don't you come a little earlier and join us for one of our Life Groups, which meet at 9:00 a.m. in Building C. We'll see you Sunday!
It's a great time to come get involved in a Life Groups.  We'll be kicking off a new cycle of groups this Sunday, July 6, and you can choose the topic or group that best interests you.  Some of the studies are based on popular Christian books or subjects relevant to your Christian life, while others are based on specific studies from the Bible.  It's a great opportunity to come try out a group, make some new friends, and grow in your walk with Christ.  The groups meet at 9:00 a.m. on Sundays, in Building C.  For more info, talk to small groups pastor Jim Beckner.
Check out the list of groups, and come get plugged in to a Life Group!

VBS Missions Offering - Last week, as part of the missions focus at our Vacation Bible School, the children brought food items to donate to Oak Mountain Missions, one of the ministries our church partners with locally. For the week, the children brought more than 500 food items to help those in need.  Thanks to all of the families who contributed.

'Pound Out Hunger' Campaign

During the month of July, we are collecting dried goods to help replenish the food bank of the Shelby Baptist Association in Columbiana.  We are receiving donations of "pound size" bags of dried beans, peas, or soup mixes, etc., and our goal is 100 pounds of product by the end of July. You can deposit the bags in the bins located in the back of the Worship Center.  For more information, talk to Rachel or Sandy Hixson (358-8974).
