Whether you attend Sunday School or have never been to church before worship, plan to be in the Bledsoe Family Life Center on Sunday, August 27 at 9:30 am. All are invited for doughnuts and juice as we celebrate the beginning of our church school year. You won't want to miss the exciting things that will take place that day!

  • Children will be promoted to their new classes
  • Children's teachers will be introduced
  • There will be a blessing of the backpacks (children bring your backpacks to church that day!)
  • Information will be shared about current Adult Sunday School classes and Sunday Short-term study opportunities.

Mark your calendars for Sunday, August the 27, and help spread the word. Invite family, friends and neighbors to join you for church, lunch and in donating a pint of blood. All we need to know is how many to expect. So, once you get a commitment from those you’ve invited, call the church office and let us know how many you’re bringing with you. Lunch will consist of Hot Dogs and Hamburgers and all the fixin’s. We’ll serve lunch from 11:45 am to 1:00 pm.


2017BloodDriveFollowing our End of Summer Cook Out on Sunday, August the 27, the Red Cross will be collecting blood donations.  The blood drive will run from 12 noon to 4:30 pm. The American Red Cross is facing a critical shortage of blood this summer. Here’s our opportunity to help. Donating Blood is indeed, giving the gift of life.

There is no charge for the meal and you’re invited to join us for lunch even if you can’t give blood.

Have you seen a notice that the Prayer Shawl Ministry is meeting and wondered what it was? We are a group that meets twice a month to primarily knit shawls, throws, baby blankets, etc. for members of our congregation and others in need who come to our attention. Recently a number of baby blankets were delivered to a ministry for unwed mothers that is connected with Belmont Abbey College and deliveries have been made twice for the NICU via Fred and Dale Willis’s daughter. Hats have been donated to Agape Dentistry, a local charity clinic, for a trip they are making to Tennessee later this month and men’s scarves have been given to Central Steele Creek Presbyterian’s Room in the Inn for a Christmas project. A baby blanket is given when a member of our congregation has a baby and a shawl or throw is available for anyone suffering from a serious illness. We need your input on who needs one of those as I am sure there are needs that we do not hear about. We would love to have more people meeting with us but if you knit, crochet, quilt, etc. and would like to work only at home, we would welcome your projects. Ideas on agencies that could use some of our items would also be welcome. One stitch at a time could make a difference in someone’s life. For more information, please contact Frances Campbell at 704-588-4686.
