Out of the Box Worship Center will be sponsoring a child through Compassion International. It takes $38.00 a month to provide needs such as food, medical care, schooling, and most importantly providing God’s Word! A locked box will be placed at the information desk in the lobby with a picture of our child! We can write and send letters to him! We welcome you to drop loose change, a dollar, or whatever amount you would like to to help us meet our monthly goal of $38.00. If you have any questions please see Leigh Anne Smith or Ronnie G Collins. We are excited to add yet another outreach ministry and help those in need and provide God’s word in Guatemala!! Here is our child Christian Emanuel Perez Gomez from Guatemala.

Meals: Friday night you will have dinner on your own, Saturday night we will share a covered dish fellowship meal together. Please bring food and drinks to share. Sunday, we will have a picnic lunch with hamburgers and hot dogs. Please bring side dishes, desserts and drinks.

Sunday we will not have services in Hillsville, but, we will worship at Camp Dickenson at 10:30am at the River Shelter and have a River Baptism. Following the baptism, we will share a picnic lunch together.
