Church Picnic – Aug 11

August 11 – right after our worship gathering we will have our annual church picnic and potluck.  We are going back to our roots to the place where we originally had our church picnics for years – MILHAM PARK  (and it is very nearby). We have reserved the large pavilion on Kilgore and Lover’s Lane by the kids playground.

THE CHURCH WILL PROVIDE: Hot Dogs, buns, condiments, plates, utensils, and water.  And back by popular demand, Gregg Jones will bring his famous “Coney Sauce” for the hot dogs.

EVERYONE BRING A DISH FIT FOR A PICNIC and we will all enjoy together – ideas include, chips, pop, deviled eggs, beans, watermellon, fruit, brownies, cookies, whatever you like to eat and drink at a picnic.  There will be picnic tables under the pavilion, but feel free to bring camp chairs.  There will be a lot of space for yard games like corn-hole if someone wants to bring those.

This will be lots of fun and a great time to eat, play games, mingle, meet new people and get to know others better.


Saturday, July 20 at 7:03 am, the Mission Trip team is leaving for their West Virginia mission trip.  You are all invited to join the 7:03 am departure if you wish to see them off.

During the week there will be online updates.  The team leaders will update our “Southern Heights Church Friends” facebook page – here is the link…


There will also be an online web blog about the mission trip at the following link…


They will arrive back home between 7-8pm on Friday, July 26.  Please be in prayer every day for the students and the leaders on this trip.  Pray for the people that they will serve.  Pray for safety and for good relationship building.  And pray that God blesses this trip for HIS kingdom.

Women’s Weekly Wednesday Bible Study

The women of Southern Heights have a weekly Wednesday Bible study in the conference room.  Come and meet new friends and deepen your knowledge of Jesus together.


The Children’s Ministry is excited to offer “VEGGIE SUMMER” – a Veggie Tales themed education program that will happen every Summer Sunday during worship gatherings.  The children 2nd grade and younger will be dismissed to the nursery where a theater room has been setup.  They will watch a Veggie Tales episode and they will learn about God’s Word and important Bible stories that are taught through the “Veggie Tales” videos and crafts.  The children will love it.


Praise God, all three students have now received the donations that are needed to finish their studies in Honduras.  Thank you to those who helped sponsor these great students.
