We are a group of believers
gathered to the name of our
Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ
This is the hour dedicated to remembering our Lord and proclaiming His death until He comes (1 Corinthians 11:23–26). Through the leading of the Holy Spirit, we worship together in prayer, hymn singing, and Bible reading. All those who have joined in fellowship then partake of the bread and wine, symbolizing the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Following a short break for coffee and light refreshments, the children go with their teachers to their classes. We then enjoy a time of prayer together and wait for a word from the Lord during our ministry meeting. As led by the Spirit, one or two brothers will share a message of encouragement, challenge, and gospel truth. These messages can be heard by clicking here.
Please join us for our midweek meeting, where we come aside from our busy weekly schedules to pray and open God's Word together. These sessions are always enjoyable, engaging, and thought provoking. We have recently enjoyed studies through First and Second Peter, Jonah, and the three epistles of John. Now we are considering the Songs of Ascents, Psalms 120–134.
What does it truly mean to be "blessed"? When the Lord Jesus was speaking to His followers early in His earthly ministry, He began an important sermon with a list of surprising statements about the life of the blessed. At this year's Southern Family Camp, we will be considering what these eight blessed characteristics—often referred to as the Beatitudes—mean in our twenty-first century context. Bring the whole family and meet us Labor Day weekend at Camp Horizon, in Leesburg, Florida, for BLESSED: It's Time for a Be-Attitude Check! Click below to register.
Our fifth annual Vacation Bible School was a huge success thanks to the Lord's blessing, the help of many adults and young volunteers, and the faithful attendance of 50–55 wonderful students ages 2–19.

We had a lovely weekend together as we meditated on what the Lord Jesus means as He calls us to worship the Father "in spirit and truth." Check back soon for pictures from the retreat, but for now, you can enjoy recordings and notes from the morning messages.
We rejoice in the Lord that we recently held a baptism ceremony at Sister Margueritte Bassali's in which four young people went under the waters of baptism in obedience to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. What a beautiful time we had, and what an encouragement to know that these children and young adults will be able to look back to this event for years to come as a time of bold commitment of their intention to follow Jesus as their Lord.
We had a rewarding weekend at family camp this year, with around eighty people of all ages joining us. We considered the challenge to "run with endurance the race that is set before us." It was nice to have so many babies and very small children this year—promising for the years to come!

We had an awesome time at our annual youth retreat in Leesburg, Florida. We had around 55 people at the retreat this year—with several attending for the first time—as we discussed the mission we have of "Working Together for the Spread of the Gospel." We will be posting photos and recordings soon to our Camps and Retreats page, which you can access here:
