Here are some of our upcoming, church-wide events

Pray First

We are praying on the first Sunday of each month from 6-7 p.m. and all are invited to join us—virtually, of course. We are focusing on God’s glory and His work in our church, our community, our nation, and our world during this life-changing time in history. We invite you to click here to join us via our Zoom meeting, and if that option isn’t for you, consider inviting others to pray on the phone, Facetime, Skype—or whatever works best for you. The Holy Spirit can overcome any physical obstacles we now face by uniting us as the Body of Christ in spirit through prayer. If you would like more information on the Pray First Prayer Guide we provide each week, or if you have any other questions or would like to be added to our Pray First email list, then please contact Brian Miller at [email protected] or 443-889-1476.

West Annapolis Pop Up Pantry

West Annapolis Pop Up Pantry and the Center for Help are working together to help those in our community during these difficult times. Each week, after our Thursday deliveries take place, we need your help restocking for the following week. Amy Marshall is helping to coordinate this great opportunity. If you are available to help deliver food on Thursdays, please text 410-491-5070.

Come on out and volunteer Saturday mornings at the Pop Up Pantry. The volunteer crew is looking for helpers for set-up, donations, and clean up. Please contact Laurie Nelson, [email protected], for the link to view the schedule and sign-up.

DivorceCare

Help is available for those experiencing the crisis of separation or divorce. DivorceCare is a weekly seminar and support group that will help you heal from the hurt. It’s a caring, safe environment led by people who understand what you are going through, where you can learn practical information and gain hope for your future. We will meet on Zoom on Thursdays from 7 to 9 p.m. each week starting September 10. Watch this introductory video and share this information with anyone who might benefit from this gospel-centered support group. Sign up here or contact Diane Schmincke for details.

All participants will receive a FundEasy fundraising page as part of registration and are encouraged to raise funds for the ministry. Please email Sophie McDowell with any questions.

Renew Groups for Fall 2020

Renew Fall 2020 is about to begin. We want you to join us as we begin our journey through the book of Acts, learning about the impact Jesus’s life, death, resurrection, and ascension had on the world and watching in amazement as the Holy Spirit’s power transforms the lives of men, women, and children in the early church. What implications do these truths have for us today? Join a Renew Group where you’ll be encouraged and challenged to live out your faith.

Renew pairs our sermon series with our small group study guides. On Saturdays and Sundays, our Pastors will preach through the book of Acts and Renew Groups will discuss the passages when they meet each week. Registration opens on September 11. Renew Groups begin the week of October 4 and will meet at church, in homes, or online. Watch for details. This is a great time to join a group.
