McConnell Church members - it’s time to submit your recommendations for the office of deacons for the coming year. Our deacons serve for terms of three years after having been nominated and elected by the church. Nominees must be a McConnell church member for at least one year and meet the biblical requirements for serving. Paper recommendation forms are available at the Welcome Desk or, if you prefer, you can make your recommendations online. The deadline to make your recommendation is Sunday, June 20th.

Prepare your hearts and join us on Sunday, June 13th for communion in person or at home. A special benevolence offering will be taken at the end of the service for Towns County residents in need.

Kingdom Prayer Focus

Heavenly Father, your word tells us that before time began, you knew us, and every day of our lives is written in a book. It was part of your plan that when we accepted your son Jesus as Lord and Savior, we would become a soldier in his army….an army that is at war. You also tell us that we have an enemy who wants to destroy us. We praise you for the life-giving armor you provided for us to combat that enemy. We ask for discernment in every battle that we encounter to know which spiritual weapon to use. Show us how to stay engaged in the fight and help us to fight well. Remind us to stay rooted in you because your divine power that lives in us is our most mighty weapon. Lead the way Lord, for with you all things are possible - in Jesus’ name, amen.
