New Caregiver Support Group

A caregiver provides support to others in need, very often to a loved one. Our Caregiver Support Group meets to support caregivers in their own needs. This group is open to any caregiver who wants to join the meetings, regardless of church membership.
WHEN: 10:00 – 11:30 am, second Tuesday of the month (except June, July and August)
FIRST MEETING: September 12, 2023
WHERE: The Hub (102 W Lamar St.) Room Y105

Tenets of our group:
. To provide a confidential and comfortable space for caregivers to share their stories and learn about each other’s journey as caregivers.
. To help ease the stress of caregiving and enhance decision making and problem solving related to their caregiving responsibilities.
. To help caregivers connect with others in similar situations and become a great source of encouragement for each other.
. To provide an outlet for caregivers to express their emotions and thoughts without being judged.
. To help reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness.
. To help caregivers learn what to expect.



Caring Connections Ministry

We are in the process of putting together a ministry opportunity to serve our church members who are at home or in assisted living/nursing home facilities and are unable to attend services in person.
CARING CONNECTIONS will help our church members feel loved, valued and connected to our church. Each participant will be assigned a church member to visit once a month, provide cards, and make phone calls.

Church-Wide Diaper Drive

Our friends at Baby Booties Diaper Bank need our help! Their diaper supplies are critically low, so it’s time to get our Booties in gear. They have asked for baby diapers (especially sizes 4, 5, & 6), wipes, adult diapers, & period pads. You can drop these supplies off in the Church office or the Hub, or click here to give financially.
Your generosity helps this local Downtown McKinney nonprofit supply diapers and other sanitary supplies to families in need in our community!


New Lectio Divina Small Groups

Lectio divina is an ancient practice of reading, meditiation, and prayer focused on Holy Scripture. It is a powerful way to grow in the spirit and connect with a group for fellowship and support.
We are excited to offer three new opportunities to engage with this practice. Groups will meet Wednesdays at 11:00 am, Wednesdays at 7:00 pm, and Sundays at 5:00 pm at the church. We will spend an hour reading Scripture, reflecting, and talking with one another. There will also be a Friday evening group meeting at a church member’s home in Allen.

Please note there will be no 8:00 a.m. Sanctuary worship on January 1, 2023. All our other services will take place as normal. We hope you join us in person or online to start the new year with worship and communion!
