Kingdom Dog Ministries

October 7, 2014

Hank Hough and the Kingdom Dog Ministries will be with us for our annual School Assembly outreach. Hank travels all over the country with a school program called The Power of Obedience. Teachers and faculty love this because he shares with students how it actually takes a strong person to submit to authority. Parents love it that he reinforces their messages that when they ask their children to mind it is not because they don’t love their kids, but precisely because they do!

We will have this team in Hancock County Schools, Pearl River Central and Poplarville Schools and they will be featured at our Block Party!

McNair’s Announce Retirement

August 17, 2014

John and Kathy announced their retirement effective August 31. Everyone was truly sad to hear this. We have enjoyed four great years of wonderful music, the highlights of which would be too numerous to even attempt to list. Our choir has seen tremendous growth and the quality of performances has been remarkable. The energy and enthusiasm they have brought to our worship is unsurpassed. Please join the church in expressing our love for them as they plan a time of rest and rejuvenation before John leads the Singing Men of Mississippi on their trip to Chili in September. They have told us they do not have a church to which they plan to go, but feel God leading them to take this step. We know you will want to plan to be in our services throughout the remaining Sundays in August so you may personally express your love and appreciation of them. The pastor, deacons, and many choir members have tried to persuade them to say on, but they are convinced it is time. To celebrate their time with us we plan a 5th Sunday Sing on the morning of August 31st with a pot luck lunch and reception to follow in the FLC. The choir will sing several selections and you will have a chance to bring a love offering for the McNair’s.

John and Kathy we love you! We look forward to continuing a relationship of love and support for you as you enjoy your retirement! God bless you!


Easter Activities

March 27, 2014

This year we will once again be having an early Easter service. We may call it our sunrise service, but we will begin at 7am out in front of the FLC, weather permitting. Then we will move inside for breakfast. This is always a highlight of our celebration of the resurrection of our Lord. Other activities of the day include Sunday School at 9:40 and a special worship service at 11 am featuring special music by our sanctuary choir. No pm services. Enjoy spending time with your family.
