Glorifying God...Expanding His Kingdom

Weekly Announcements

From the March 15, 2020 Bulletin


 Childcare – We have preschool care during the worship services for preschoolers ages 0-5 in our nursery area (rooms 105-106.)  Children grades K-4 will stay with their parents during the song service, then they are dismissed to children’s church before the message.  You must pick up your child from children’s church after the service in Room 207.


Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Ministry – Every month this year we will be collecting different items for OCC Shoebox Ministry.  During the month of March we are collecting fun colored or cartoon band aids.  You may bring the band aids and place them in the box in the foyer any Sunday in March.


Annie Armstrong Easter Offering – We are collecting the Annie Armstrong Easter offering every Sunday through Easter.  Our goal is to collect $600 this year.  This offering goes to support missions in North America.


Keenagers – The seniors will be going to JJ Thermos Restaurant in East Alton in the East Gate Center for lunch and fellowship this Thursday at 1:00 pm.  Everyone 55 and up is welcome to attend.


Iron Sharpens Iron Men’s Conference - Any men (13 and up) who missed the men’s conference in O’Fallon in February can still attend the men’s conference in Springfield on Saturday March 21st. Register at www.rpmfm.org and notify John Cavanaugh at (618) 381-1495 so car pool arrangements can be made.


Women’s “Stuck” Bible Study - We are not alone in this.... every one of us is fighting something.  We are going to take an honest look at the war inside, expose it, and deal with it. God will win this fight, but we have to start fighting it His way, on His terms. The cause of our stuckness will vary, but our common humanity assures us we are all inadequate and broken.  Thankfully, we don’t have to stay that way!  Join us each Wednesday at 7:00 pm at the White House.


Men’s Bible Study – While the women are meeting at the White House for Bible study, the men will meet at the church for the study “How to Pray:  Developing an Intimate Relationship with God” by Ronnie Floyd.  Join us each Wednesday at 7:00 pm.


Murder Mystery Dinner - The youth will host a Murder Mystery Dinner fundraiser on Saturday, April 18th.  Please make plans to attend this fun and entertaining evening.  We will start promptly at 5:30 pm.  Please sign up on the bulletin board or let Donna Gaines know if you can attend.  Donations will be accepted that evening.


Nursery Workers Needed – We are in need of nursery workers.  This would be on a monthly rotation, working one Sunday a month with birth through age 4 during church.  Please contact Ginger Toolen.
