MAYBERRY CHURCH RETURNS!
Join us for Mayberry Church this Sunday evening (September 22) in the Fellowship Hall at 6:30! Mayberry Church is a locally award-winning worship experience that blends scripture with the classic Andy Griffith Show. This week's classic episode is entitled "Those Gossipin' Men." Aunt Bee, accused by Andy of being a hopeless gossip, sets out to prove that the men of Mayberry are even bigger rumormongers than the women. Our Worship Theme is "Gossip's Poison" and the Key Scripture Verse is Proverbs 18:8 (MSG) - “Listening to gossip is like eating cheap candy; do you really want junk like that in your belly?”
