We are located in the Ozark mountains of southwest Missouri. The community is predominately a retirement/weekend cabin community, as we live close to Bull Shoals lake. Many of the people who work have a long commute and not a lot of time for church. Our congregation is mostly over fifty. There is not much that unites our community together, which has made it hard to build relationships with people. As in most rural communities, drugs and alcohol are problems.
PRAYER REQUESTS: With Christmas coming up, pray that we as a church would know how to reach out to people. Pray also for the men’s Bible study, that we would grow closer to each other, and that God would grow us and bless the church.
