"Noisy Offering" is collected the last Sunday of the month separate from our regular offering. The youth and children of the church go into the congregation with a can to collect loose change. When they have collected all the change, they return to the front of the church and empty their cans into a large metal pan. This makes a very loud and joyous noise! Currently the Noisy Offering money is helping support The Nolan County Ministerial Alliance.
Collections for the Nolan County Food Pantry are collected through Reverse Offering. Items are provided from the collection plate on the first Sunday of each month. Put in your offering and take out a slip of paper with item needed. Bring your items the next Sunday and place in the grocery basket at the entrance of the church or there is basket in the hallway by the church offices. Food, personal hygiene, gently worn clothes and shoes, or cash donations are always appreciated anytime through out the month. The donations are greatly appreciated.
The children and youth have begun lighting the candles and ringing the church bell each week. If you child would like to volunteer, be at the entrance of the church by 10:35am before worship.
