Awana Pounding

We've started a new year with our AWANA Program and we need your help once more.  In the past, we have had poundings for our Awana store.  We had awesome results!  You all pulled together and stocked our shelves for a full year.  Some of you gave donations and others brought lots of goodies.

We are going to be collecting items through the month of September.  Items needed are: any kind of toys, sports balls, Barbies, jewelry, notepads, water bottles, flashlights, action figures.

Larger items donated last year were scooters, sleeping bags, tents, arts and craft items.

These prizes are for children from ages 18 months - 6th grade.  If you would like to give a monetary donation, please give to Britney.

Places items in box under the bulletin board, give to Britney or drop off at the church office.

5th Sunday Night Singing is September 30th, 6:00pm.  Providing the special music will be "Our Testimony" - Nathan and Tonya Horton, a husband/wife duo from Asheville, NC.  Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend.

"Nathan and Tonya Horton are a husband and wife, fresh new duo from Middle Tennessee. They may be new as a duo but no strangers to the gospel music world.  Many of you may remember them from the former bluegrass gospel group "Set Apart." 

Their love for music and singing both evolved at any early age. This Tennessee boy and North Carolina girl were married back in 2004. They brought together their love and styles for music, such as bluegrass, southern gospel, jazz, acoustic,country and contemporary, and began singing and writing songs. They have a deep, passion for serving the Lord and count it a joy and privilege to travel together sharing their songs and testimony with others."
