... and ... we cry out to Him in prayer ... for one another, our families,

our church, our community, and our world. 


Our teenagers and children also fellowship, study, and pray together

at this same time - so bring the whole family as we praise Him !!!

Christmas is just around the corner !!!

And we're thrilled to help raise money for the

Operation Christmas Child - Samaritan's Purse Shoebox Ministry.


 We're holding a Yard Sale with some great household items, toys, books, clothes, and more !!!  All of these sale items have been generously donated by church family and friends.  And 100% of the proceeds received from their sale will be used to purchase items for the Christmas Shoeboxes for children across the globe.  

If you have items you would like to donate for the sale, please call ahead to our Church Office - 386.734.5085 - to arrange for a good time to drop off your items.  


Please plan to join us on the weekend of the sale -

and invite friends to come as well.  Help us make this Christmas

an amazing and special Christmas for the children of the world - as we offer them a simple gift - and most importantly this simple gift offered with the love of Jesus Christ and prayer for these children and their families.  






New Life Clothes Closet

Saturday, Sept 9th


Sanctuary Patio

9:00 am



We have yet another amazing opportunity to reach out to our community neighbors with the love of Jesus Christ as our New Life Clothes Closet opens its doors on Saturday, Sept 9th - this month on the 2nd Saturday of the month rather than our usual 1st Saturday of the month.  


If your closet is bare, please come and see the slightly worn clothing

that has been so generously donated to us - and which we in turn

are privileged to offer to you at no charge whatsoever.


 And we can always use your help !!!  If you are able to assist us in sorting

and hanging clothing - and help all to find the specific items and sizes they need - please just show up and we'll put you to work!


 Most importantly, this ministry is simply our opportunity to get to know
our neighbors, hear their hearts, and pray with them and for them.

 Please come and join in this powerful ministry of serving others.





Church Family & Friends

24 Hour Prayer


Tues, Sept 12th @ 6:00 pm ... thru ... Weds, Sept 13th @ 6:00 pm



What a joy and privilege we have to go to our God in prayer !!!  

And we join other churches in Volusia County in committing to a 24 hour window in which our church family will cover in prayer.  As other churches do likewise,

we have the month of Sept covered in prayer - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week !!!  Praise God !!!  


Won't you please call our Church Office - 386.734.5085 - and commit to a specific hour in which you will pray?  You can pray at home or any other place where you enter into the quiet with Him and pour your heart out to Him for our community and our world.  We are seeking His presence and His hand to move among us to change us and to transform our community to more fully serve Him

and share Him.  Please pray alongside us ...

Helping Children in our

Local Elementary Schools


Throughout the Month of September



Won't you please lend a hand to some children

in our local DeLand elementary schools.  


There is a need for socks and underwear for these children - boys & girls -

sizes 4 to 16.  Our Women on Missions ministry team is organizing this drive

to collect these items for the children and will take them to the schools

where they will be distributed to the children there.  


Won't you please consider donating these items?  

You can bring you donations to Worship on Sunday mornings or

to the Church Office throughout the week.  


Thank you for your heart for these children and their families.  

Please pray for them, their families, and their schools.





Operation Christmas Child

National Collection Week


Mon, Nov 13th - Mon, Nov 20th

Family Life Center Drop Off



Now is the time to be shopping for and collecting those special items to fill your shoeboxes for a child somewhere across the globe - and make their Christmas one to remember this year.  For many of these children, this is the only sense of Christmas they will experience.  And we pack those boxes with the love of Jesus Christ and send them with prayer - that the children receiving them will begin to understand who He is and how much He loves them.


Please keep your eyes and ears open for additional details as we get closer to the drop off dates.  Our church is a key Drop Off Center for individuals as well as organizations preparing shoeboxes.  We will need lots of volunteers to help !!!


It's going to be a great year for this great ministry !!!

Please be in prayer for hearts open to share and for the children and

their families who will be impacted by this ministry.
