Thank You Veterans and may God bless each of you!
We had a great business meeting last night for which the Renovation Team presented a great briefing on the work they have been doing to update our Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall. Their motion brings before the Church a lot of much needed upgrades and the cost of the whole project. We will bring their motion before the church in a called meeting this Sunday (17th) at 6:00 pm before we go eat chili/soup. This Wednesday (13th) at 6:30 pm, they will give another presentation to answer any questions for those who were not at the business meeting. I encourage every member to come and see their vision to meet our needs. You can also contact any of the team members: Ruth Cockrell, Barbara Shiver, Farrell Stokes, Carl Lee and Jerry Dixson. This team has done a great job and we congratulate each of them to include Wayne Watkins.
God is doing great things at Antioch so you don't want to miss a thing! Sunday (24th) during our 11:00 am service, we will baptize two young men who have given their heart and life to our Savior Jesus. They are Jake Trimnal and Justin Hopkins. We have been so blessed by all the hard work of those involved in our Children's program this year. Come and be a witness to their public proclamation of being a follower of Christ Jesus. At 5:00 pm we will have our Church Council meeting and then at 6:00 pm, we will gather to decorate our Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall. Bring your favorite cookies and we will make some punch, sing some Christmas songs and have a great fellowship. Everyone is welcomed to the decorating at 6:00 pm.
We welcome our two new Deacon's Alan Lutterloah and Stephen Anderjack to the work of the Church in fulfilling God's Will! Please be in prayer for them.
We want to welcome to our Church Family our newest members Kinlyn Hinson, Josh and Meagan Twitty and kids, Vicki Logan, Ann and Bo Stokes, Matthew Stokes, Marcus Stokes, and Summer Arrants. We look forward to working together for the Kingdom, Church, and Community. We praise God for all He is doing in our church family. May God bless our journey together with each other and with our community!
Our Church is growing and we want to be more involved in Discipleship and Evangelism in our Community along with helping meet needs. Every part of the body has a purpose and a part to play - please let each of us do our part to the glory of our God and Savior. Even if you don't feel led to lead a ministry or team, then just be part of the team. Every member needs to be active in some ministry of our Church. We are in need of volunteers to work in the Nursery Sunday AM and PM services along with Wednesday service. We also need volunteers to work with the Preschool ages. Please see Pastor, Jane, and Loren if you need more information.
We want to welcome Josh Twitty and family to our church as our new Youth Leader. We ask that you keep Josh and family in your prayers. If you have children and grandchildren in the 6th grade up, then bring them out to experience this new journey.

If you can't join us on Sunday mornings, the join us on Facebook as we go live every Sunday at 11:00 am. If you know someone out of church, homebound, work, or in hospital that has access to facebook, then let them know about us and encourage them to join us. Then let us know what you think. May God use this tool to call the lost, reestablish those out of church, and reach people around the world. Please be in prayer for us as we step out in faith.
Please annotate on your calendar that our Wednesday night service time has changed from 7:00 pm to 6:30 pm with Choir practice afterwards at 7:15.
We are praying for our newest ministry which will open doors to those with Special Needs. This ministry is much needed for the individual and the family. If you are interested in this ministry and wish to be involved through our church, please contact the church.
Our focus at Antioch is to provide the Holy Spirit the environment to move in the lives of all Visitors, and Disciples as they journey with Jesus. We promote the Word of God as our book of life. We promote a daily walk with Jesus. We promote daily Prayer (communication) with the Father. We promote action for Disciples in the forms of ministry; use of spiritual gifts; use of talents; love for the Saints, and those who don't agree with us. If this sounds like a House of God that you would like to visit, then you are invited!
