The Pastor’s Corner


I encourage you to read The Communicator with care this month. There is information about significant events and ministries for our church through the fall.

Please come and join us for dinner on September 6, I will give a presentation to the church of the joint meeting of Deacons, Church Council and Finance Committee regarding the finances of our church. Hope to see you for dinner and the program to follow.

Can you make a note to invite friends to the Music program on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at 3:30 PM. Let’s fill our church yard with people and make some new friends. It looks to be a great event for the community.

Looking forward to a great fall.


The Dixie Melody Boys will present a concert on our church lawn on October 14th at 3:30 p.m. This is a very popular group and we are expecting a large attendance for this concert. There is no charge for the concert, a freewill offering will be taken. Bring your lawn chair and enjoy the music and the fellowship.

Riverside Dinner Theatre Trip

We are getting excited about our trip to Fredericksburg on Saturday, December 2nd to have dinner and see a Christmas Spectacular Show at the Riverside Theatre. There are a few seats still available on the bus. If you would like

to go, see Floyd Myers. The total cost for the trip, $70.00 per person, is due October 14.

Bring your dust cloths, mops, window wash supplies and join them for a fun day as we spruce up our building.

Your discarded items could be a treasure for someone. You may place any items that you would like to contribute in the room across from the youth room.

The Alma Hunt Week of Prayer for Virginia Missions

September 18-24 – we have set aside this week to remember the good work of the missionaries who work throughout our state in the Indian reservations, church planting projects, children’s CrossRoads Camp, Southwest Virginia Partnerships, Abigail Girls Mission Projects and many others to help people in Virginia have a relationship with the God who loves them.

You can help with your prayers and gifts. You will find a special offering envelope in the pew racks or in your offering envelope box. We may not be able to go, but we can help others share the love of Christ with a world in crisis with our prayers and gifts.
