Prison Ministry would like your used copies of the Signs of the Time magazine.  We have a neat and secure way of blocking out your name and address so please do not cut it out nor use a felt tip pen to do that.  You may leave the magazines at the church office or on a chair on Ella Fisher's front porch. Thank you very much.


Thank You We would like to thank the Gentry Church family for sponsoring the shower for Cody and Jaxen Pharris last Sunday; not only for your generosity, but the wonderful support shown with such open and loving hearts.  Thank You!


Adopt a Dorm Daughter or Dorm Dude Today!  63 OAA dorm students need our prayers and Christian love.  This ministry involves sending the students notes, cards, and small gifts (mostly food) from now until Thanksgiving.  You may choose to let them know who you are, or keep your identity secret until Thanksgiving.  Contact Bonnie Pendergrass to adopt your student.


Thank you Check the table in the hallway for completed projects from the first Women’s Ministry event last Sunday.  We had a great time creating our projects. There will resume  classes on Sept. 20 and 27 at 1:00 p.m. at the home of Dona Young.
