A New Directory is Coming!

In order to do this we need everyone to take a few minutes and fill out the Church Data form. Please take the time to help us do this work. Please fill out one form for each baptized member of your household. There are two ways to get this information to the office:

Paper Forms

Pick up printed forms, fill them out, and hand them in. OR Download the paper form HERE, print it, fill it out, and hand it in.

Online Forms

Click HERE to use the online form. If you need more than one form, you will have the option to fill out an additional form as each form is completed.


We want to remind you that we offer electronic giving as a way to automate your regular weekly offering through a program called Simply Giving.  Electronic giving offers convenience for members and provides much-needed donation consistency for our congregation.

Direct Debit Giving is used to automatically transfer funds from your checking or savings account to the church’s bank account.

Credit & Debit Card Giving allows you to make offerings automatically on a pre-determined schedule using a credit or debit card.

As you contemplate future contributions, please consider electronic giving.  Download the form HERE.

donations for the Homeless

We are partnering with the homeless ministry at Vancouver Avenue First Baptist Church. We have worshipped twice with this congregation in the summer. Pastor Amanda and several others know the church’s Pastor, Matt Hennessee, who walks with Connected. 

Everything that was used at JOIN can be used at the Vancouver Avenue homeless ministry. Please continue to bring socks and underwear, hygiene items, clothes, towels, peanut butter and jelly. Place them in the blue bin in the fellowship room and they will go to those in need. If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Carolus. Thanks always for your care for others.
