Missions Meeting
Are you interested in Missions? Local, state-side, or abroad? Let’s get to-
gether and have a conversation! We will meet on Sunday, October 2nd at
4:30 PM in the Conference Room to discuss YOUR desires to “Go into all the
world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation.” All are welcome!
Volunteer Opportunities
Edwards Street Fellowship Center is grateful to partner with numerous Hattiesburg-area businesses that help provide food for the 1,000+ families who depend on our food pantry every month.
Are you available to pick up food once a week or once a month and deliver it to our food pantry at 1919 Edwards Street?
If so, please contact Miranda Adams at miranda.ESFC@gmail.com for more details or to be placed on the volunteer schedule. Thank you for helping in the fight to end hunger in the Pine Belt!

Pastor’s Blog  Rev. Aislinn Kopp

We have all been to a dinner party.  It might not have been a fancy dinner party with name cards, but it might have been a church potluck or a family Thanksgiving dinner.  At some point, we have had dinner with a group of people.  We also know that most of Jesus’s meals were what we would consider a dinner party, so this type of group meal was a common occurrence.  Jesus often chose things that happened every day to teach a lesson, so we know that this was not just about seating at a dinner party, but about how we act when encountering others in our daily lives. Do we act like we are the most important person in the room, or do we approach others with a sense of humility?

Fall Discipleship Opportunities

Main Event on Sunday Night—We are currently forming Supper Clubs. If you would like to join a group or Supper Club, please contact Aislinn or Todd. We will form other groups as people are interested.

Second Wednesday—meets at 6:00 PM on the second Wednesday of every month at Patio 44, unless otherwise announced. This is a time of fellowship and discussion on a different topic each month. There is no requirement to purchase a meal, and all are welcome.

Thursday MORNING Bible Study has begun Disciple I: Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study. ALL are invited to become a part of this intentional growth group of BIBLE STUDY meetings from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM. Books are available for purchase. Please talk to Todd for more details. It is our hope that all members of Main Street will grow deeper through participation in a small group or Sunday School class. If you need help finding a small group, please contact Aislinn, Todd, or Jeremy. If there is not a group meeting at a time that is available for you, please let us know
