Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Our mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.
Together with our friends from the Dr. Phillips Citrus Rotary Club, we will be collecting food and money for needy families in our community. Our goal is to furnish them with a full Christmas meal and a $100 gift card. Join us as we bless those in need! You can contribute in three ways: bring in a food item based on the list we publish and assign by the first letter of your last name; you can give towards the gift cards; and you can help us hand out the baskets! It's a wonderful and emotional experience that brings smiles and tears to all!
Our series for the month of August is all based on our favorite songs of yesterday! "Hey! Is that Freedom Rock man? Well, turn it up!" We don't always agree with the lyrics, but we believe that the gospel can seen even in the idea of an old song! Come join us, every Sunday in August for "The Summer Mix Tape!" Tune in, turn it up, and rip the knob off!

How you feel is very important to God. So much so that part of the reason Jesus came was not only for your spiritual eternity but for your physical healing for your time on this earth. Jesus words at the last supper were, "This is my body which is broken FOR you" and then his disciple Peter who went on to become a founding Apostle of the church said in his first letter, "with His stripes we were healed." God is very aware about your physical well being. Join us for a special direction.church healing service on Sunday July 15 where we will lay hands on the sick and also pray for your family members who are sick and offer a prayer cloth for you to take with you to give to them. God does heal and wants to heal you, so join us at 10:30 and receive what you need!
We are going to talk about the thing NOBODY wants to talk about in church: Money!

We all have a filter in place. Some filters are great and keep us protected, positive and moving forward. Other filters damage us, slow us down, and make us miserable. God has given us the ultimate filter that will make all the right difference in our lives. How are your filters holding you back? How can you get rid of the right ones and move forward? What experiences have placed blinders on your life causing you to miss out on more of what God has for you? The Holy Spirit wants us to find those filters and remove them and live our relationship with Him to the fullest! Come and experience #NOFILTER and see life for what it was created to be!
