Our hearts are broken (again) today as we pray for the victims in Las Vegas.

What's going on? Can anything we do make a difference?

How do you love in an age of hate and random, senseless, plotted violence?

Some thoughts....

Join us for Bible Study at 9:15 and Worship at 10:30 tomorrow!

A day of serving our community...The youth did an awesome job at the food pantry and also enjoyed lunch at the hob nob.

Delivering snacks to Holston Valley Hospital and then putt-putt!

The youth group had an awesome time at the Devil's Bathtub today!

[07/18/17]   Fellowship meal this Sunday night at 6:00 pm at Scott County Park! Bring sides or dessert-church will provide the main dish and drinks. See you there!

Our last night of VBS was lots of fun! Our original offering goal was $275 to buy 5 water filters for One Cup of Water-China and Pastor Andy would get a pie in the face! The kids, along with some help from adults who wanted to see the Pastor be pied, raised $575-enough for 10 filters!! So, the whole staff got pied! We had a great week! God is good!

VBS Day 4! Parents, remember to join us tomorrow at 7:45!

More VBS fun!

Another fun night at VBS Galactic Starveyors 🌠

Worshipping with family is so special! Join us on Sunday morning for Bible Study at 9:15 and Worship at 10:30.

I thought missing a Sunday morning service wasn’t a big deal.

I have worked at Connexus Church for 8 years and would only miss a Sunday because I was away on vacation. Quite honestly, I didn’t think missing a Sunday was a big deal. It’s not a sin. It’s not earth-shattering. No one notices (or do they?). Right?Then I had a baby and went on maternity leave.

And I started to participate in our church community like most people do.

And everything changed.

Because, when I miss a Sunday service, I miss way more than I ever thought.

From birthday parties to a sick baby, a variety of reasons had kept me from participating on Sunday mornings. I would watch online. And online is great to keep me connected when I can’t be there in person. Or to share with friends and neighbors who are curious about church but not ready to come. So easy!

But – given the choice – attending on Sunday morning trumps all else. Every time.


When I skip Sunday morning, I miss these three critical things.
