Summer Prayer Meeting & Bible Study. Please join us on Wednesday evenings at 6:15 p.m. in Adult 1, C-1118, for prayer meeting and Bible study. We will be studying the Gospel of John as we try to wrap up this wonderful study on Sunday and Wednesday nights. Pastor Chad, our staff and special guests will be teaching throughout the summer on Wednesday nights.
Church Security. All doors except those at the sanctuary foyer, Welcome Center, and the main Yaupon entrance are locked once Sunday worship services begin for security reasons. When arriving after 10:45 a.m., please enter through one of these entrances.
Childcare Staff Positions Open. We currently have openings in the childcare department for paid nursery attendants. Please contact the church office for more information.
Wednesday Night EQUIP U Classes. If you have a particular skill or expertise and would be interested in teaching a 10-week instructional course free to our community on Wednesdays beginning in September, please see Brad Dawson. Our church is planning a new Wednesday night missional format in the fall that will provide helpful how-to and instructional courses free to our community.
Worship Leadership. If you have an interest in helping lead worship with any of our Celebration groups (choir, orchestra, or praise band), please contact Bro. Ronnie. There are openings for most any instrument or vocalist. The choir is now coming down from the loft after the music portion of our worship service to facilitate involvement for families with children. Childcare is also available during rehearsals. Call the church office or Bro. Ronnie at 979.373.7301 for more info!
