Lenten Bible Study

This year we have a six-week study by Rev. Adam Hamilton titled “Final Words From The Cross.” The cost of the book is $9.00. Women’s Study Time starts on March 2 from 10 am – 11:30 am followed by a time of prayer from 11:30 am to Noon. Pastor’s Bible Study starts on Wednesday, March 3 from 5:30 pm to 6:45 pm. Both sessions will be covering the same material so if you miss the morning session you can attend in the evening.

Refuge House Needs

Refuge House needs deodorant, socks, toothpaste, and hotel size toiletries. Please leave your donation on the table in the adult Sunday School room. If you would like to be part of this outreach, please see Margaret Boyette or Jean Ingram.

Pavilion/Audio Visual Update

Please continue to pray and give as the Lord leads you. Through your financial contributions and prayers, enough funds were raised to update our audio/visual system to enable us to live-stream our Worship Services with better clarity and sound. We still need $7,000 to complete the Pavilion near where the Maggie Patterson house was. This pavilion will allow the church to provide more outreach services/programs to the community so we can share the love of Christ to others in our community of Chaires. For detailed information on the structure and how it will be utilized please speak with Marty Holland or Gordon Lightfoot.


ECHO has made a request for blankets and warm clothing as well as non-perishable food.  Our donation box is in the back of the church near the information table.
