Parking Lot Renovation – The church parking lots are being upgraded, expanded and renovated. As each area is addressed you may need to find an alternate area to park. We ask for your flexibility as we look forward to more parking spaces and improved access in the very near future. You can use the drop off area at the Welcome Center for your family. Then look for our parking attendants who will guide you to the nearest available parking spaces. Golf carts will be touring the area to assist with transportation to and from the church.
Encounter Parrish Bible Study - Encounter Parrish meets on Saturdays at 6 pm at the Gillett Chapel (12125 71st St E, Parrish) for fellowship and a Bible study. There is no need to RSVP-just come join us. For more information, contact Pastor Kenny at 941-722-7795.
Baptism - If you feel called to take the next step in faith, you may be ready for baptism. Baptism is a public declaration that you are a new creation through your faith in Jesus Christ. For more information, call the church office (941-722-7795) and ask to speak to a pastor about your baptism.
