Homeless Outreach

The Brotherhood will be going out to service the Homeless community May 22. We are asking the congregation to participate in several ways, besides the preparation of food. We are asking for donations to create our toiletry bags. The main item we will need are new socks (Children and Adult). We also need Band-aids, Deodorant, Chapstick, Lotion, Sun Screen, Tissues, Toothbrushes (and covers), toothpaste, Wet wipes, soap, Shampoo, conditioner, mints, and water. Many of you travelers have the small sample sizes brought home from your vacations, these would be perfect donations. There will be a donation box in the vestibule by next Sunday. For further information ask any Brotherhood member.



He is Amazing and we are getting ready for Amazing Encounters with Jesus! This summer Vacation Bible School (VBS) will start June 17 the – June 21st.  We are looking and recruiting volunteers to help and be a part of this amazing encounter. Everyone can participate, there are so many ways for you to help. Here is how; we need teachers, teacher assistants, set up / cleanup crews, a photographer, volunteers at large, financial assistance, and donations of prizes.

 Like the message from our Pastor, here is your opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and do something you have never done before while developing a closer relationship with God. For further information please contact First lady Garrett or Deacon Boyd

This awareness event is held throughout the month of May to coincide with the peak season for asthma & allergy sufferers. There is a higher incidence of asthma emergencies, hospitalizations and death in African Americans compared to Caucasians.  Both asthma and allergies can make you feel miserable. Understanding the similarities and differences between the two can help you learn to manage symptoms or potentially avoid them altogether.
Allergies: Our immune systems are designed to protect us from potentially harmful threats. Allergies occur when our immune systems react to something which is not a threat, whether it be a food item, pollen, dust, bug bite, medication, or something else.While the sniffling and sneezing from springtime allergies is most commonly associated with allergies, symptoms of allergies can manifest themselves in the lungs, sinuses, and skin.
Asthma is a chronic lung disease which can make breathing uncomfortable and difficult. Asthma can be associated with either an allergic or non-allergic reaction. Non-allergic asthma can be triggered by stress, medication, air temperature, smoke, and infections of the airway.
If you believe you are suffering from Asthma or Allergies contact your health provider, for treatments or over the counter medications.

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.
