Our Church Was Vandalized Last Night


Good afternoon. 

I wanted to share with our church family and community that our church was vandalized last night.  It appears they were attempting to break in by throwing bricks through the front glass doors and one of the stained glass windows.  Fortunately, the bricks scratched the glass on the door and window but they did not break.  

I want to thank our grounds keep Hayes Lawn-care for bringing this to our attention and the Anderson County Sheriff’s Department for their prompt response. A police report was filed and we are making arrangements to enhance our property for the future.  

Take a moment to thank God for His protection and pray that God may reach whoever did this.  God's grace is big enough for everyone.

For the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.  (Psalm 84:11 NLT)

We must remember that God is in control and we must trust Him in the good and the bad. These problems are merely building blocks as we await our final destination.  Be cautious, be patient and be hopeful!

In Him,

Pastor James

This ordinance is not for everyone.  This is only to be taken by those who are believers and accepted Jesus as their ultimate forgiver and leader.  To partake in this service in an unworthy state is sin. 1 Corinthians 11:27 (NLT) 27 So anyone who eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord unworthily is guilty of s
