Ready for (Re)launch? 🚀

Your church staff and volunteer leaders have been working hard behind the scenes to help (Re)LAUNCH our Fall 2022 Sunday & Wednesday night ministries, not to mention some new and exciting things happening in our church and larger Gulf Coast community in the coming months!
Scroll all the way through to make sure you don't miss out on any of the activities happening in our church family this fall! 

For regular updates, check back often to our social media pages & website to stay In the Loop!
We are so excited to launch a new Sunday morning LifeGroup for 5th-6th graders called Club56 this coming Sunday morning!

in Club56, we want to create a specific environment JUST for 5th-6th graders to help them understand God and how the Bible relates to their life, tailoring it to how they think, learn, feel, and grow. Starting this Sunday (September 4), our 5th and 6th graders will begin gathering in The Loft during the 9 o'clock hour. You can check your preteen in at the bottom of the stairs in the South Entrance for the LifeGroup hour!
Don't miss out on the return of Sunday night ministry starting back
September 11th at 5PM!

We'll have AWANA for K4 - 6th grade, Student Worship for students 7th - 12th grade, and LifeGroups for every age and stage of life. Two short-term Equipping Groups (DivorceCare & Confronting Christianity) will also launch for adults on Sunday nights. 
We’re so excited for the return of Wednesday night ministry starting back September 14th at 5:30PM!
We'll have Children's Worship Ministry (5:30pm), Hope Pack Ministry for distributing food & care packages to food-insecure students in our area (5:30pm), a new LifeGroup "Defending the Faith" led by Richard Smith (6pm), and Adult Choir Rehearsal (6pm)!
You're invited to the first of many monthly prayer gatherings lifting up our city of Gulfport as we pray to become a City of Light on our MS Gulf Coast. For September's prayer gathering, we'll be meeting at Little Rock Missionary Baptist Church in Ward 1 for a time of worship and meaningful prayer for our city.

You don't want to miss this gathering on Tuesday, September 6th at 7pm!
Save the Date for Trunk-or-Treat on October 30th from 5-7PM!

This year, our annual community Fall outreach event will look a little different. We're hosting a Trunk-or-Treat (no festival component), so we're asking for everyone to serve by popping open their trunks and preparing to visit with our Gulf Coast Community! We will begin collecting candy at all church entrances on Sunday, September 4th. 
ATTENTION LADIES!  Next month, we’re excited to gather together before church begins to PRAY & seek wisdom and purpose with all of the ladies at our church! Set your alarm and join us at 8am for a morning of concentrated prayer, deepened fellowship, and delicious breakfast food! Make sure all the ladies in your life are invited.

SAVE THE DATE: September 18 | 8am
On the first Sunday of each month, we've enjoyed hosting First Sunday Fellowship between the LifeGroup and Worship hour! Though the coffee & donuts are a great excuse to gather together, our true desire is that this fellowship time would help our church family get to know one another better and grow deeper in our community of faith
