The church expansion includes construction of a Sanctuary, adult classrooms and a new Education Wing that will add more children and youth classrooms. This expansion will greatly enhance our ability to serve and minister to the community. The Educational Wing will allow Creation Kids Childcare, EPIC Youth programming, and the English Language Learners program to expand. The added space will provide the space for many more ministries.

There are many projects limited only by the number of volunteers.

The Pantry is an exciting, vital place, and volunteers are an essential part of the ministry. Volunteers are always appreciated, and there are places for everyone, individuals as well as families.

How do we serve? By committing our lives to become more like Christ. We can become the hands and feet of Christ by serving those members of our community who are struggling. For more information please visit their website at https://northlibertycommunitypantry.org

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You….

 

The staff would like to take this time to thank everyone in the congregation for their generosity and helpfulness during the past year. It is wonderful to work in a place where you are appreciated and people show it in many ways.

Thanks from all of us to all of you

 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers who have helped in the office over the past year. I have always said that, “OUR VOLUNTEERS ARE THE BEST!!” It doesn’t matter what the task is, I can always find someone who is willing to come in and help or help from home. There are not a lot of places where this happens, and I want you all to know that you have saved me on more than one occasion. THANKS for all the help in 2015. God has really blessed this church when it comes to volunteers. I lift up my eyes to the hills where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121: 1—2

 Thanks again for all the help I have received in the office this year.
