This Sunday (July 1) we will have a 4th of July celebration at the church from 5:00 - 7:00 PM. There will be great food, fun and family fellowship. There will be games for kids of all ages, prizes and a sneak peek into our Vacation Bible School activities.
Hamburgers and Hot Dogs will be provided, please bring a covered dish that compliments such as cole slaw, potato salad, chips, dessert.
A sure way to let others know we at Antioch care about them is to show them. Church visitation is one area that makes us often feel uncomfortable! The thought of meeting up, going to someone's home and knocking on the door surely takes us out of our comfort zone!
But, as a church grows, our heart for others grows. Though challenged, God's will and desires become more important to us and we follow Him through our fear and feelings of inadequacy.
In a step of faith, we have set the date for a morning of visitation - June 30 we will meet at the church at 9:30 AM and reach out with Christ's love to invite families to our church. We are placing an emphasis on families as we encourage them to come to Vacation Bible School and become active in Sunday School.
Will you take part? Are you interested in church growth that goes beyond numbers and into allowing God to change lives, homes and families? This step of faith may be the spark to bring about the things that only God can do!
This Sunday is Father's Day! The ladies of Antioch have a special day planned to celebrate and show appreciation to our dads. Breakfast will be served to dads and the family Sunday morning at 8:30 AM. Plan to come early and bring dad for a time of food and fellowship.
The adult men and adult women Sunday School classes will have a get together on this Friday at 6:30 PM at the home of Dave & Kathy B. If you are in either of these classes, be encouraged to join for some great fellowship! Bring a covered food dish.
Can you believe it is JUNE? Although June gives us a bit more leeway in our schedules, it can still be a busy time. As we enjoy the freedom from school, the slower pace of days and the fun activities of summer, may we be mindful to not 'relax' in the work of the Lord. There are still ministries to fill, people to touch and the extra time in summer allows us to be more diligent in our service to Him. It's not just 'a thing to do', but a chance to dedicate ourselves, step up our leadership and be in tune to where God is working...and join Him!
