THERE IS A CHILDREN’S table set up during the 9:00 a.m. worship service. This table allows the children to draw, share Bible puzzles, and even do quiet crafts in the back of the room while adults and parents are able to focus on worship. Please bring your child and allow them to join Ms. Catherine at the children’s table for worship from a child’s perspective.
VBS will take place July 17 – 21 from 6-8:00 PM, with dinner served each evening. VBS will be a family-oriented event this year. So please make plans to join us as a family. Maker Fun Factory is our theme and we promise it’s going to be a LOT of learning and FUN for EVERYONE! Click here for registration information.

DECORATE OUR SPACE! at THE SULZBACHER CENTER
Want to try your hand at designing? Make one of our rooms an extension of your style! There are common areas throughout the shelter that serve as entertainment spaces for our residents and they need your help. Adopt a common area and decorate it for our residents. Check in on the space throughout the year and keep it looking like home.
Pick out furniture and wall art to make a space more welcoming. This is a fun activity for a family or group. Your hard work will be appreciated on a daily basis by our residents.If you adopt a room, you sponsor the space for one year and you can check in once a month to give seasonal flares as desired. You and your group will also be featured on one of our social media channels.
E-mail our Volunteer Coordinator at EmilyKnight-Smith@tscjax for more information.

Did you know that federal law greatly restricts the disclosure of patient information by hospitals? As a result, the pastor and church office may not know that a member of the church has been admitted to the hospital. If you are hospitalized and would like to notify the pastor, it is important that you (or a family member or friend) inform the church office as soon as possible, because we rely on you to let us know so that we can offer pastoral care and support! We would rather five people let us know rather than no one at all! Thank you for your help as we all join together to minister to the needs of our congregation!
CARE is available during worship for the children ages 3 and under in the Family Life Center. Please take advantage of our staffed child care during the worship service
Please notify the church if you have any changes such as: email addresses, name change, physical or mailing addresses or phone numbers. Email us or call the office at 904-396-0567.
