Connecting to God, to each other, to the world


The pandemic has forced us to cancel our annual church-wide box packing party, but the O.C.C. committee is still working to fill boxes with donations from earlier this year. Committee members will be packing around 300 boxes to be sent to children all over the world. You and your family can add to that total by filling your own box and bringing it to church. Any shoebox or plastic box will work, or you can use pre-made O.C.C. boxes we have here. Some things you can use to fill your boxes include:
                       SOAP          WASHCLOTHS          CUPS          BOWLS          SOCKS          GLOVES          HATS          COLORING BOOKS          CRAYONS
                       PENCILS      PENS          MARKERS        SPIRAL NOTEBOOKS         HOT WHEELS          SMALL FLASHLIGHTS          GAMES          DOLLS

Please bring your filled boxes to church no later than Sunday November 8th (that's less than 3 weeks from now - so don't put it off til later!).  Let's see how many more boxes we can add to those being done by the O.C.C. committee!
Our fall festival will take place Wednesday October 28th, from 6:30 - 8 pm. This will be an outdoor activity (in the event of bad weather the festival will be rescheduled - it will not be moved indoors). After discussions with the local health department, we have decided to do this as a drive thru trunk-or-treat. This will allow us to welcome as many visitors as we can, while keeping everyone as safe as possible. We still need people who are willing to bring their vehicles to the parking lot and decorate them using a biblical theme. The church will provide candy and refreshments.  Masks and hand sanitizer will also be made available.  If you can help with the festival, please let Bro. Dustin or Bro. David know as soon as possible.
Through the end of October we will be collecting the Eliza Broadus offering. This is a special offering sponsored by the Kentucky Baptist Convention. The money raised goes to help ministries, mission projects, and missionaries right here in our own state. This is a great way to help advance the kingdom of Christ in our communities and neighborhoods. Please prayerfully consider giving to this very important cause. There are special Eliza Broadus envelopes you can use, or you can indicate on your regular envelope how much you are giving to this special offering.
We are making some much needed repairs to the youth building. Broken windows are being fixed, old carpet is getting removed, new carpet tile is being installed, and other upgrades are being made. If you can help with these projects, please see Bro. Dustin or Bro. David.
