There are a lot of exciting events coming up in the next two months, but before we get to that, we want to talk about a new way we have set up to serve you, as you live out your faith throughout the week.  We are providing you with a free account to an exciting new video library called RightNow Media.  It’s essentially the “Netflix of Video Bible Studies” because you will have instant access to over 10,000 great Bible study videos for kids, youth, parents, married couples and more. You can view these videos from your phone, tablet or computer, or in a group setting through a TV or projector.


Some of you should have already received an official “invitation email” to give you FREE access to this library under our church’s account.  If you haven’t seen it already, please check your mail filter as the email comes from RightNow’s system and it may be caught there.  If you still have not received it, please email Pastor Don Spivey at and request an invitation.  We hope this will be a great resource of spiritual growth for you, your Life Group, and your family.

Now check out some of the upcoming events in the life of our church!


Arts for a Cause is this April 17, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm in the main auditorium.  It is a coordinated effort among artists in our community to raise funds for various organizations & ministries locally & globally.  The program consists of periodic performances including everything from dance, music, live painting, video, etc….  with breaks in between to talk, get refreshments and look at (& bid on) various art pieces that have been donated for silent auction.
$5 minimum donation at the door gets you admission to these events as well as coffee & a dessert.

All funds raised through this AFC will go to help with Caleb Bender’s medical expenses. Caleb is a young boy in the Clermont area who was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy.
