New Union welcomes everyone to Sunday School at 9 a.m. and worship service at 10 each week.  A Blessing Box is full and ready for those in need  The Kids Power Hour begins weekly starting Sept. 6 from 6:30-7:30 p.m.

Ijames Baptist Church’s worship service is each week at 10:30 a.m.  Bible Study is each  Sunday evening from 5-6 and TeamKID is each Sunday at the same time for children, ages 3 years to 6th grade. Ijames welcomes everyone to all services. Ijames is collecting non-perishable items for a Blessing Box on the church grounds, and the box now has a produce stand.  Anyone with an over abundance of garden vegetables may place their bounty on the stand.  Anyone in need may take what they can use.

A great time was had by children of all ages at VBS on Aug. 19 at Liberty Wesleyan Church.  It was a time of learning more about Jesus, enjoying playtime with each other and of course, snacks. Thanks to Pastor Rob Garrison for the photos.

A time of prayer is held at Liberty Wesleyan each Sunday at 9:30 a.m., followed by Sunday School at 10 and Worship at 11. Choir practice is held each Wednesday at 7 p.m. The church family wishes Pastor Rob and Bonnie Garrison the best as they start a new journey in ministry. They will be missed, and are much loved by everyone in the church and community.
