ESL Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are needed for our ESL Ministry, which meets on Thursday mornings during the school year from 9:00 a.m.–10:30 a.m. Our fall semester begins Thursday, September 5. Volunteers are needed for teaching, assisting in classrooms, hosting, and transportation. The most urgent need is for hosts and hostesses to set up the coffee and snack service, greet and check in students, and help clean up after class. These relationships are an important connection for many of the people who attend these classes. For more information, please contact Rita Smith at

Together in Missions & Ministry
Serve In The Media Ministry

The Media Ministry is looking for volunteers who want to serve our church family. Dawson Media is responsible for producing the worship services in the Sanctuary and on the livestream. We also record the broadcast for television that reaches thousands of people in Alabama every week. This is a great fit for anyone interested in technology or art. Whether you’re interested in audio, video, or lighting, there is a place for you! Experience is helpful, but certainly not required, as training is provided by experienced members of the media team. Media volunteers need to be in the 7th grade or at least 13 years old.

Together in Bible Study
Sunday Evening Apologetics Study Begins This Fall

Sundays starting September 8, 5:00 p.m., Fellowship Hall

Why does God allow suffering in the world? How could a loving God send people to Hell? How can one religion be “right” and the others “wrong”? As a way to continue to learn how to carry on God-honoring conversations in the face of a skeptical culture and as a follow-up to The Story training, please join us for a 6-week study as Pastor David leads us through Tim Keller’s The Reason For God. Each week we will tackle big questions that open skeptics and ardent believers struggle with by drawing on literature, philosophy, reason, and real-life conversations to explain how faith in a Christian God is a soundly rational belief. Please purchase your copy of The Reason For God Discussion Guide online before the first class. A limited amount of books will be available for purchase at the first class.

In this webinar, Sissy breaks down why—and what we can do to not only help, but also be preventative in the lives of the girls you love. You’ll come away from the time with a better understanding of what’s going on in today’s world and in our homes that might be contributing to the anxiety. You’ll also gain practical strategies as to what you can do to help. And finally, she’ll point us back toward hope and helping kids find a faith that underscores any worry that might and will come their way.
