We have a church wide study that will start on Wednesday, October 19th. We’re encouraging everyone who can to come join us as we study Alisa Childers’ book Another Gospel. This study will equip us to recognize the false teaching of progressivism that surrounds us and to stand firm for truths of Scripture.

You can sign up this Sunday to join us! We have workbooks for those who will be participating that you can pick up Sunday as well. The actual book, Another Gospel, is not required but will give you extra information and preparation for the time of discussion. You can find Another Gospel on Amazon and pretty much anywhere you purchase books.

We will be offering childcare for this study for kids ages birth – 5th grade. You will need to sign your kids up for childcare by Sunday, October 9th.

Propel middle and high students will be joining in the study as we feel it very important to equip them in the same ways.


We will be having a fall festival off campus on Sunday, October 16th from 3:00-7:00! There will be a CORN MAZE, SACK CLOTH RACES, AND MORE!

If you plan to attend, we ask that you sign up out at the Welcome Center just so we have an idea of how many people to provide food for.

We will have a special activity in which we will need candy, so we will be taking up candy donations. If you would like to provide a bag of candy for the Fall Fest, we are collecting the candy by the forKids check-in station!
** Please try to get candy that DOES NOT contain NUTS ** 

Kids are welcomed to dress up for all the fun! And all you need to bring is a lawn chair and if you’d like to, you can bring a non-heated appetizer type food.

Come help us clean the streets of New Albany October 6th-9th! Not only is this a great way for us to serve our community, but the money earned from it is used to support our Propel youth ministries for the following year! You can sign up at the Welcome Center Sunday morning to help!

Clean-Up Times:
Thursday 8pm – 10pm
Friday 9pm – 11pm
Saturday 9pm – 11pm
Sunday 4pm – 6:30pm

We want to be a blessing to the Wilkin family as they serve the Lord where He calls. There are some supplies and things they enjoy that they’re not able to get where they currently are. We would love to be able to get these items for them and help bless and support them in this way. The items are listed here or you can pick up a list out at the Welcome Center on Sunday morning. We’ll need the items turned in by THIS Sunday, September 25th.

Chest Of Joash

The Chest of Joash provides an opportunity to give above and beyond the normal tithe. The money from it goes directly to work needed done on our building.

In 2 Chronicles 24 we find Joash repairing the temple and a chest was set outside of it for people to bring a tithe that was used to pay the workers restoring the temple. Verse 10 says, “And all the princes and all the people rejoiced and brought their tax and dropped it into the chest until they had finished.”

A huge THANK YOU to all of you who have joyfully donated just as the Israelite officials and people did!

You can give to the Chest of Joash by clicking the button below and selecting “Chest of Joash” in the drop down menu.
