Youth Group @ Six Flags

Youth Group @ Six Flags

The Youth Group from The Way went to Six Flags this past Wednesday. The weather was a little warm but the roller coaster rides were going full tilt and the girls loved the rides. Marina, Gaeun, Emily and Michelle joined Rick and Vicki for a Spring Break day at the amusement park. Everyone had a good time. Though everyone else was tired by late afternoon, we had to pull Marina out when we were ready to go because she wanted to stay till closing time.

Men’s Conference – Jan. 24-25

Men’s Conference – Jan. 24-25

Eight men from The Way attended last weekend’s 2 day Men’s Conference at The Hills Church in North Richland Hills, Texas. It was a blessing to worship with 2,000 men from churches from nine different states and hear the inspiring speakers of Bob Goff, Jason Romano and Bryan Carter. It is always a blessing for our men to attend this annual event and we hope to take more men next year. The theme of the conference is to be the man God wants us to be – to be a man of God.

TOY DRIVE a huge success! (126% of goal)

TOY DRIVE a huge success! (126% of goal)

Our church rose to the occasion with the recent Toy Drive that ended the second week of December. We ended up at 126% of goal in collecting Christmas toys for children in need for our surrounding community. This year’s recipients were children of the Grayson County Homeless Shelter. This organization receives many children into their shelter at this time of year and our congregation’s donations in the love and name of Jesus were answered prayers, according to the Shelter. (There is such a need here and the new Fannin County Homeless Shelter that The Way supports is scheduled to open in January 2020, which may be a great opportunity for our love and support for next year.)
