Due to the Big Woods body being blessed with young families and little ones each of us also has a responsibility for their safety.  We want to especially encourage drivers to be cautious and careful during our summer services to ensure the safety of everyone, especially our children.  Please follow the directions of the deacons when pulling in for our services.  Please be aware of surroundings when leaving the service and use extreme caution when backing up your vehicle.


This weekend marks one of the most important events in the lives of the teens at Big Woods. The 9th – 12th Navigate Students will be at the annual Sprinter Retreat this weekend and will be focusing on developing a biblical understanding of God’s Will. Pray that they can step back and disconnect from the busyness of life. Pray that leaders can develop solid relationships with the students and speak into their lives.  Pray that students develop and grow their relationships with others in the group, to challenge and encourage one another. Above all, pray that they grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and that everything that happens this weekend is for His Glory.

The movie Hidden Figures will be shown tomorrow evening at 8:30 PM on the church grounds.  Snacks will be provided.  Bring your own chairs/blankets.

A church workday will be held this Saturday, July 31.  Breakfast will be provided at 8:00 a.m.  Please sign-up here.

Please join us this Sunday for our next Summer Fun Church Event – TRACTOR RACES!!!  The event will be held at the Montei Ranch (1618 Seely Run Road, Jersey Shore) directly after church.  Please bring a dish to pass and your lawn chair.
