  • We want to support your Student! Calling all parents, grandparents, mentors and students – give us your student’s sports, dance, band, etc., schedule, so we can support them as a church.  Please email or bring in their schedule or let us know when they have something big – a dance recital or concert, and we will show up as we are able!  We would like to publish dates for the church to come support them doing what they love to do!  Talk to Ginny Owens or Pastor Sarah for more details!

  • Socks for September: The Chesapeake Shelter Team (CAST) season begins the first week of November, but our church will be hosting the week of January 8th – 15th, 2020.  We are already gearing up for this wonderful ministry and will be collecting new socks (all sizes for men, women and children) during the month of September.  If you are interested in getting involved as a team leader, please contact Teresa Mizell (323-2932).
