Dinner and Movie Night  •  5:30 PM
Come for a free cookout dinner and a movie on Friday, August 26. The movie this month is titled "All Saints" and follows a small-town Tennessee preacher who is sent to inventory the church property and oversee its sale to make way for a big-box store. Rated 4+ stars on Amazon, the movie is humorous, life-affirming and heart warming.

We enjoy the company of our neighbors and friends so invite some. The food is a groaning board of hot dogs, hamburgers, multiple salads and especially desserts. The fellowship is spirit-filling.

Day of Prayer and Fasting  •  8 AM–6 PM
We will have a churchwide day of prayer and fasting for Northern Neck Christian School on Tuesday, August 30th. The church will be open for those who want to pray in the sanctuary. Pray for God to pour out blessings on the school. This mission has the opportunity to change the direction of the lives of the children in our community as well as their families.

New Bible Study Begins • 1:00 PM
"The Nature and Work of the Holy Spirit"

For Christians our doctrine of the Holy Spirit influences everything else we believe. He is foundational to our understanding of Scripture, theology, history, and practical Christian living. This study highlights mainstream evangelical systematic theology derived from biblical teaching and draws special attention to the vast scope and depth of the Holy Spirit’s work in all areas of creation and life.

Deepen your knowledge of the Spirit as you overview the wisdom and insights he has granted to his church regarding himself. This 12-week study was produced by Third Millennium Ministries for a global audience.
