Ijames Baptist Church had many events going on these past couple weeks.  On May 13, the ladies held a brunch with enough food to feed an army. It was a great time enjoyed by everyone.  On May 20, it was family bingo night.  This again was a great night of fun, fellowship and praising our Lord.

Ijames Baptist’s worship service is each week at 10:30 a.m.  Bible Study topic “Sharing Jesus without Fear” is held each Sunday evening from 5-6.  TeamKID is held each Sunday at the same time for children, ages 3 years to 6th grade.  Ijames welcomes everyone to all services.  Ijames Baptist is collecting non-perishable items for a Blessing Box on the church grounds. Anyone in need may take what they can use.

A time of prayer is held at Liberty Wesleyan Church each Sunday at 9:30 a.m., followed by Sunday School at 10 and Worship at 11. Choir practice is each Wednesday at 7 p.m. The Baby Bottle Drive for Davie Pregnancy Center runs through June 18.

The weather didn’t cooperate again this month for the Hotdog Saturday at New Union. Hopefully, the next event scheduled for June 24 will be better.

New Union and Pastor Brian Loper welcomes everyone to Sunday School at 9 a.m. and worship service at 10 each week.  Kids and Youth Night is held each Wednesday from 6:30-7:30. A Blessing Box is full and ready for those in need.

Community Covenant invites you to join them on Sundays at 10:45 a.m. and 6 p.m. for worship and on Wednesday evenings at 6 for Bible study.
