Vacation Bible School

VBS is just around the corner! Plan on joining us June 7-11, 2015 for Vacation Bible School. This year our children are going to take a journey off the map and discover that obedience to God will take them beyond what they expect. Join us each night at 5:00 for a free family meal and 6:00 for VBS. Click here to register your children.


Celebrating the Christmas Season

Don’t forget all that is happening this month as we celebrate Christmas as a church family. Take note of the following:

  • Children’s Christmas Musical Sunday, December 7, at 6:00 p.m.
  • Adult Choir Musical Celebration Sunday, December 21, at 10:45 a.m.
  • Christmas Eve Service with the Path Worship Center, December 24, at 6:00 p.m.

Also, don’t forget about the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. Our goal this year is to raise $15,000 to support international missions. We need your help! Every dollar you give to Lottie Moon goes directly to our missionaries to make sure that they have the financial resources they need to continue their ministry. Fervently pray as to how God might have you give.


Pray for Our Missions Team

Right now we have a team of people serving for the sake of the Gospel in a closed country in Asia. For the next week or so this team will be attempting to make connections with locals so that they might share the Gospel with them. They need your prayers. Jonathan Edwards said, “There is no way that Christians, in a private capacity, can do so much to promote the work of God and advance the Kingdom of Christ as by prayer.”

Your prayers really do make a difference, and I can tell you that our brothers and sisters from Big Stevens Creek who are laboring for the Gospel in a foreign land appreciate every single prayer you offer up for them. Over the next week, set aside time each day to pray for our team. Pray that they will be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. Pray that they will be bold in their faith. Pray that they will do whatever God asks of them. Pray that they will rest well each night. Pray for locals to be receptive to our team and the message that they share. Pray, pray, pray!

Good News Club

I had the opportunity to teach at Good News Club this past Monday afternoon, and I was blown away! We had well over one hundred children at our club, and they were full of excitement! It was awesome to hear them sing to the Lord and engage in the memory verse activity. I was amazed at how attentive they were when I taught. They interacted with me extremely well, and when they were asked review questions, it was evident that the kids had paid close attention to the Bible story.

I left Good News Club feeling incredibly grateful. I am grateful for our church investing into a local elementary school for the sake of the Gospel. I am grateful for the volunteers who give their Monday afternoon to minister to a room full of kids. I’m grateful for Merriwether Elementary allowing us to have a club in their school. I’m grateful for parents who trust us with their kids every week.

Good News Club is a great ministry, and it’s a simple way we can get outside the walls of Big Stevens Creek and engage our community. I know many of you work on Monday afternoons, but many of you do not. Could you volunteer an hour of your time to help with Good News Club on Monday afternoons? It will bless you beyond measure to serve these wonderful kids each week. Contact me if you are interested in plugging in and serving Christ through our Good News Club.
