This Week's Text

“Jesus, Our Wisdom" 1 Corinthians 1:30Guest Speaker: Jareb McClain

Sunday School Classes

There will be no Sunday School classes this coming Sunday due to Missions Sunday. Instead of our regularly scheduled classes, there will be tables set up for people to walk around and learn more about Missions!

Missions Sunday

The Big Woods Mission Team invites you to Mission Sunday, October 1st. Our goal is to present our current involvement with missions and to learn about cultures from around the world. Current missionary, Jareb McClain, is our speaker. We will have food samples from different countries during Sunday School for you to enjoy as well as other activities.


On September 30th from 8am – 12pm, Men’s Ministry will be cooking up breakfast and hosting another productive workday here at the church. As we seek to steward our church property, we are going to paint around different areas of the church, install baseboard, build a shelf for the youth room, repair holes in walls, wash windows, and so much more! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. Please sign up here!

Home Group Sign Ups

It’s that time of year again! If you are interested in attending a homegroup, please sign up in the link here or on the paper copy in the back of the sanctuary. Home groups are one of the ways that we seek to connect people together at Big Woods. Some groups meet weekly, others every other week, and we even have some that meet once a month!

Grief Share

Grief Share is a 13-week group that will be running every Tuesday evening at 6:45pm from September 12th – December 5th. Grief Share aims to help you face the challenges of grief after losing a loved one. During the sessions, we will focus on the hope and healing that is found in the truth offered through gospel. Sign up here!

Wednesday Evening Service

Join us every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. for a time of fellowship, prayer and encouragement. These services are a way for us to bear one another's burdens and grow together as the body of Christ. To hear more about these services, click here to watch a video from Pastor Aaron.

Men's Garage Ministry

Our next Garage Night will be, Thursday, October 5th at 6:00 p.m., where all men will be invited to meet at the garage of Dave Frankenberger (1930 Long Run Road, Mill Hall). Men, grab a chair and come prepared to talk shop and tackle life’s challenges, while building on the strengths of your brothers in Christ

House 2 House Dinners

Please consider hosting a dinner, attending a dinner or both! Signup online here or using the paper signup at the back of the sanctuary through the month of August. Want to attend a dinner? How many people will you be bringing? Want to host a dinner? How many people can you host? This is a GREAT way to meet new people in the church and break bread together in fellowship!

Fall Fest

Mark your calendars for this year’s Fall Fest happening on October 28th from 1pm-3pm! We are looking for volunteers to decorate their trunks, pass out candy, oversee games, inflatables, and a temporary tattoo station. You can sign up to help by clicking here!

Book of the Month

For the month of September, we are recommending two books! The World-Tilting Gospel: Embracing a Biblical Worldview and Hanging on Tight will help you know more clearly and simply the gospel message so that you can share it more easily. Broken Bread: How to Stop Using Food and Fear to Fill Spiritual Hunger will help you find your satisfaction in Christ alone, not the blessing God has given us. These books are also the basis for two of our four Sunday School classes through October. Find them and many other great books available on the bookshelf!

Sunday Lunches for Young Adults/Families

Our weekly Sunday Lunch for Young Adults is taking a pause for the summer. Be sure to keep an eye out for when they will start back up!
