The Children's Ministry is planning an ambush, but that's a good thing. The kiddos will head to the home of one of our members and surprise them with an ambush of service - cutting grass, washing cars, cleaning up around the house, etc. Once they're finished, the kids will rendezvous back at the church and enjoy a pizza lunch. Children who have completed 4th Grade may be dropped off, but the younger ones need a parent to accompany them. Talk to Ernie for more info (251-626-1379).
Now is the time for discipleship! Hence, the Disciple Now weekend, "Jesus Is Truth." Students 6th-12th grade will spend the weekend divided into age-graded groups and stashed away in host homes. They will dive deep into the Scriptures to hear from God, engage one another in hilarious games, and defend their host home in an epic battle of Flag Wars.
Sign up in the Worship Center foyer or the Rock by February 23 to guarantee yourself a Disciple Now T-shirt.
Make the short trek with us over to East Brent Baptist Church in Pensacola for a fun-filled day of Awana Games! The day starts at 9AM with the Awana Bible Quiz.

Faith Family is thrilled to be sending eighteen of our very own as missionaries to Skagway, Alaska. Our team will connect with local youth and women in an effort to build relationships and share the Gospel.
We will be commissioning these eighteen during our morning worship service on Sunday, July 28, at 10:30AM. May God use them for the glory of His name and kingdom!
