Summer Drive-In Services

“Honking for Jesus” is a unique musical ministry begun in 1972, in which takes place outdoors on the east lawn & parking lot of the church at 7:30 pm on designated Sunday evenings in a refurbished chicken coop. The audience sits in their cars; to show their appreciation and approval of the musical and spoken messages, they are encouraged to “honk their car horns!”


The Fall schedule officially begins on Sunday, September 13th with two services offered. The churches follow this schedule until the next summer schedule typically scheduled around Memorial Day.  

8:30 AM at Our Saviors

10:30 AM at SMG or Mona (watch for details on which church will host each Sunday) 

Members are welcome to attend any of the three church services.  Offering envelopes designated for one of the other churches will be transferred to the church's designated Treasurer.
