1st : John 3:16 (KJV)  16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
2nd : Romans 3:23 (KJV) 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
3rd :John 1:12 (KJV)12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
 4th : Hebrews 13:5 (KJV)
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
5th : Hebrews 13:6 (KJV) So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
6th : Hebrews 9:22 (KJV)22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
7th : 1 John 1:9 (KJV) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
8th : 1 Corinthians 15:3,4 (KJV) For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

Let us not forget our memory scriptures.

Agenda items for Council and Business meetings must be submitted One week before the meeting date. New agenda items are no longer accepted from the floor.

It is essential that all POC leadership responsible for any church programs or events, must complete a Church Event Form and deliver the form to the Church Secretary who will forward it to the Church Activity Director. This is important because Pastor insists that all POC associated activities are in line with our church values of being Consistent, Compassionate, and Committed. This is also important so that church resources and membership are effectively used to make our events and programs successful. Failure to submit the Church Event Form might result in an event being cancelled.

You may also write your prayer request and place it in the box in the vestibule our Prayer Warriors are ready, willing and able to assist you. ALL requests are kept confidential.
