Sack the Pulpit

We prepared 170 food bags for our community – it’s actually 340 bags with 170 additional turkeys. CRAZY! Our folks young and old brought these kindness bags that will bless the neediest in our area! This involved over 100 of our families and about 25 spent the morning putting them together.


What a night! We had 1,500 attendees…just wow! Our members are so creative from costumes to trunks, and the elaborate Toy Story production will be hard to top next year! It was such an awesome night, and we enjoyed meeting each and every one of our visitors.

Shepherding and Leadership Workshop

What an awesome day! Each of our six shepherds presented at our Shepherding and Leadership Workshop. We also heard from Larry Arnold, Jerry Elder, Dan Winkler and dear friends Jerrie W. Barber, Randall Roby and Stephen Morris in their areas of expertise. We presented to ministers and elders of a little more than 25 congregations.

School Supply Drive

This year, we served four local schools with approximately 70 filled backpacks and nearly $500 in art supplies! Thank you to our generous members who shopped, donated and delivered these items to the schools!


VBS was amazing! The theme this year was “Faith Builders,’ which allowed use to use an insane amount of legos and awesome bold primary colors! We had the best time teaching these little ones about building their faith in Jesus!

Lads to Leaders

Lads to Leaders (L2L) is the oldest and largest leadership training program used by the churches of Christ today. It is a tool churches of Christ can use to help prepare their youth and adults for service in the Kingdom of God and help develop their overall leadership potential. L2L is more than just attending…


CYC is an annual Church of Christ conference/mega youth rally that takes place in the Gatlinburg, TN. We always have a large group in attendance! Here is a glance at some of the fantastic memories that were made!
