Dear Members,

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful, loving and devoted moms in our church family. Sadly, for us, this will be our first Mother’s Day without the mother of our church, Sister Lois Evans. Let’s remember Dr. Evans and his family in our prayers of comfort. And if this is your first Mother’s Day without your mom, you are in our prayers.

Now it’s time to hear from our Senior Pastor, Dr. Tony Evans.

When life throws us a curveball . . . the unexpected . . . a crisis, our response may be less than godly. If that’s you, you’re not alone. Tune in this Sunday, May 10, at 10 am CDT when Dr. Evans will take a story of a single mom to show us “How to Handle a Crisis” from 2 Kings 4: 1-7.

Here are your weekly reminders:

Reopening the Economy

As the economy progressively reopens, we are taking our time to explore all options on how and when to reopen our facilities. Our primary consideration is your safety and health; thus, we will proceed cautiously in a wise and safe manner. We will keep you informed on our progress.

Family Vacation Bible School

Save the dates for our Family Vacation Bible School, Sunday through Wednesday, June 7 – 10. The entire programming will come from our children and youth. Make plans to join us virtually for four nights of fun and engaging activities with a strong biblical emphasis. More information will be coming your way soon.
