Back to School, Back to Church

Now that summer rhythms are giving way to school schedules, make sure that Sunday worship is in your weekly routine.

Scripture is clear: God is honored, and we benefit when we gather with other believers to worship (cf. Hebrews 10:24-25).

This Sunday, August 14, we will have three worship services:  9:40 blended, 11:00 blended, and 11:00 contemporary. Then, on Sunday, August 21, our traditional service in the chapel at 8:30 will be added back to the schedule.

I’m looking forward to being in worship with our church family this Sunday, and I hope to see you too!

From Attender to Member

If you’ve been attending Ingleside for a while, I encourage you to take the next step and commit to membership.

Why?  Because membership is an expression of your devotion to Christ and his body, the church.  It’s a way of saying to the Lord and to other believers, “You can count on me.”

The next membership class is this Sunday, August 14, from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. in Room F-300.  No reservation is necessary.  Dress is casual.  There’s care for your kids. And we will serve you a complimentary snack supper.  Just come in the east entrance to the Worship Center and someone will be there to welcome you.

If you have questions, please reach out to our Membership Pastor, Mark Hudgins ( or our Membership Assistant, Debbie VerSteeg (, or call 478.477.7251.

I hope you will be in the membership class this Sunday!

Semi-Annual Church Conference

On Wednesday night, August 31, at 7:45 p.m. in Room W-200, our church will gather for our Semi-Annual Church Conference.

The agenda includes electing new Overseers, voting on the proposed 2023 Ministry Budget, hearing ministry updates, and a Q&A time with the Lead Pastor.

A healthy church has healthy processes for governance and accountability.  I’m grateful that such healthy processes have long been part of our culture at Ingleside.

I hope you will join us on August 31!

Your Pastor and Friend,
