Inspiring Each Other to Glorify Christ by Growing, Connecting & Reaching
The Church is God's spiritual family. It is made up of all those who have chosen to place their trust and faith in Jesus and who are His followers (disciples). The Church is not a building or one particular group of believers. To belong to the Church, is to belong to Jesus. The Bible uses the analogy that Jesus is the Head of the Church, which is His body. God's will is for the Church to gather regularly to worship its Head, Jesus, to use its various gifts and abilities to serve its Head, to love and encourage those who are in the body, and to work diligently to maintain the unity of the body. It is expected that every member of the church will assemble for worship on each Lord's day and participate in the sharing of the Lord's supper, which is a central part of the worship service. The whole church family invests in the spiritual growth of each other, especially our children and teens. Therefore we believe the assembly of the saints should take precedence over all other activities so that all will be edified and our youth will grow in admonition of the Lord. Church should be a hospital for the hurting. A place to turn to - seeking guidance and peace from sin and sorrow - not a place to be condemned. Church is where we should all turn for reconciliation. As the members of His Church love one another and maintain unity of purpose and relationship, the world around us will recognize that we belong to Jesus. The Church or body is to seek to do the will of God, which also includes loving and saving the world through Jesus Christ. The church is guided by the Word of God.

We rejoice with Viviana Cruz who was saved when she was baptized on Sunday, July 29th by Kelly Lancaster.
Thank you so much for the cards. They have been so helpful to me. I put them so I can see them throughout the house. I have been absent [from worship] for such a long time, and I want you to know that I will be back. Please pray for me and for my parents, Pete and Nita Barnes, who have been moved to an assisted living place in Lebanon. My dad is again in the hospital in Nashville, but is planning to return to Lebanon. They are 92 and 93 and attend Crieve Hall church of Christ. Thanks again for all of the cards, love and prayers. Sincerely, Vicki Ambrose
