Fall Kickoff and Promotion Sunday


This Sunday, August 23

Summer vacations are in the books, and autumn is just a breath away. Children are entering fresh classrooms, and the promise of less humidity is on the horizon. We have hit the sweet spot, otherwise known as Promotion Sunday! Access kiddos will be promoted to their new groups on August 23, and Rich will speak live as we begin a new message series entitled “Starting Point.”

We’ll also host a fall kickoff cookout after the second service. Food and drinks will be provided, as well as bounce houses for the kids. This is a fantastic time to bring friends, coworkers, and neighbors along with you to see all that Access has to offer this fall. We can’t wait to see you Sunday!… Read the rest

On her first Sunday in town, Maggie walked through the doors and into the hearts of the church that she now calls “family.” That very same day, she signed up for a Community Group comprised of other young single women. In serendipitous fashion, the group was planning to have lunch together that day and invited Maggie to join them.11216715_10203811021651485_3211975182338204106_n

Maggie was eager to get involved in service at Access, so as she shared lunch with her small group, she asked one of the women where she could get plugged in. One of the women talked with her about Waumba Land (for children ages birth-five).… Read the rest
