We'll return to our regular schedule on Sunday, July 12.

Back to School Picnic

Mark your calendars and make plans to join us for a fun time of food, fun and fellowship with the Shelby Crossings family at our "Back-2-School Picnic," on Sunday evening, Aug. 30, at Veteran's Park in Alabaster. We have two pavilions reserved and we'll plan to begin gathering at the park (at Pavilion #7) in the late afternoon with plans to set up for our dinner at 5:00 p.m.  Our picnic dinner will be around 5:30.
 
The picnic will be "potluck," and each family is asked to bring enough food for their family, plus one person, to share. Please also bring a 2-liter drink or gallon of tea or water. Paper goods, cups, utensils and ice will be provided. This is a church wide event, and everyone is invited. Plan to bring along a friend or two!

Kid's Stuff

W3

W3...will be starting back for the fall on Wednesday night, Sept. 2, from 6:30 to 8:00 in the Kids Crossings Building (Bldg. A). This time of focusing on "Word, World and Wacky games" is for children in kindergarten through 6th grade. We'll have a fun and exciting time learning God's word this fall, as we study along with the always helpful Dr. Digalot and Canteen the camel.  Also, if you are an adult or college student and would like to help out with W3, contact children's minister Shellyn Poole.

Students for Hire

Several of our youth are seeking opportunities to earn money to pay for our Winter Retreat, coming in December. If you have yard work, painting, cleaning, babysitting or any other reasonable chore you would like to hire an able-bodied student to perform, contact youth pastor Dean Shirley and he will help you get someone scheduled.

Firehouse Ministry

Our church will be serving dinner to the homeless men of the Firehouse Shelter in downtown Birmingham this Sunday night, Aug. 16. We will plan to meet at 5:00at Home Depot in Pelham to carpool together, or you can just meet up with us downtown at the Firehouse (1501 3rd Avenue North) at 6:00. If you'd like to serve with us on Sunday, please contact Mike Herrera so he can get an accurate headcount of workers. Donations to help defray the cost for the ministry are much appreciated.

Baptism

We are planning a celebration of baptism during our Sunday worship service in the coming weeks. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ and have never taken the step of publicly professing your faith through the symbol of baptism, and are interested in being baptized at Shelby Crossings, or if you have questions about the meaning and practice of baptism, talk to Pastor Ken or one of our staff.
