Freedom Family Update

Last week, Russ Muse taught us from Luke 1:46-55.  Here are some key points:
  • When we study passages like these (Mary's song) we must remember that we know many more details than she did - we know the end result. So look at the passage from her eyes.
  • In using the word "Lord" Mary meant "the person to whom I belong."
  • In using the word "Savior" (Jesus had not even been born yet) she was praising God's deliverance and believing for her past, present, and future.
  • She had the attitude of "The Mighty God has done great things. I'm honored He is blessing me and using me."  This is different from a popular approach of "What is God's plan for MY life?" which can be selfish. We should instead be honored to be participating in HIS plan for the world.
  • Mary praises His mercy from generation to generation. She is well aware this is more than her having a baby. 
  • God scatters the proud. Brings down rulers. Shows mercy to the world.
  • Let us always be watching to recognize and remember His mercy!

We are looking for a few more Dream Team Members who want to serve in our Infant-Toddler Nursery. One Sunday a month, you would get the opportunity to serve our youngest church members by teaching our littles about Jesus through singing, playing, reading, and a craft. All resources are provided, you just get to come and play and minister :-) If you are interested in joining this Dream Team or would like more information, please contact

Sandi Yaggie: 864-908-1645 or Lisa Muse 864-234-1157.

2021 - 24 Hours/21 Days of Prayer 
January 3-4, 2021 then through January 23, 2021

We will kick off our 2021 21 Days of Prayer with 24 Hours of Prayer on January 3-4 and continue a fasting/prayer focus through January 23.  Here are some details:
  • The initial 24 hours will be covered completely at home. We will NOT be opening the church for it this year, but we ask that you sign up to claim an hour (or more) for focused prayer using this link.
  • We will have three Wednesdays of onsite prayer with the church open on January 6, 13, and 20 from noon-1pm.
  • We encourage you to fast in the way God leads you. Some fast from food completely, others temporarily suspend social media, coffee, sugar, or some other routine habit/activity in order to focus that energy on prayer.
We are so blessed to have the church family we do, both online and in-person.
We hope you all can sincerely think of it as a gift and say #ilovemychurchfamily as we worship our Great God together!
See you in 2021!
