You and your family are invited to join us for worship this Sunday at Shelby Crossings. You'll be inspired by uplifting songs of praise to God, and hear practical truth from his word.

It's a great time to come get involved in a Life Groups.  We'll be kicking off a new cycle of groups this Sunday, July 6, and you can choose the topic or group that best interests you.  Some of the studies are based on popular Christian books or subjects relevant to your Christian life, while others are based on specific studies from the Bible.  It's a great opportunity to come try out a group, make some new friends, and grow in your walk with Christ.  The groups meet at 9:00 a.m. on Sundays, in Building C.  For more info, talk to small groups pastor Jim Beckner.
