Announcements & Community Events
Bible Study & Sunday School: Join us Tuesday and Sunday at 10:00 a.m.
National Night Out: Thanks to all those who shopped, cooked, served 240 hot dogs, visited, and shared in the fun on a very hot evening. A generous noisy offering and other donations of $129.53 helped offset our expenses.
Back to School Event: It will be hosted on Monday, August 8th from 6;00 to 7:30 p.m. at the Rose Hill Christian Church for those students in Douglass & Rose Hill school districts who need help with back-to-school items.
Blessings of the Backpacks: Hard to believe summer is drawing to a close. Join us next Sunday, for a back-to-school blessing. Prayers for all our students and teachers returning for the 2022-2023 school year.
AC Comfort: One of the air conditioners in the sanctuary was replaced at the cost of $4900. Along with that comfort our bill for last month was $571. We are so blessed for your regular contributions that help cover these costs, but it has sure put a dent in the checkbook.
