Please come and fellowship with us!

"Others, Lord yes, others
And less of self for me.
Lord help me live for others
That I might live like thee."

Come join us for fellowship in God's Word. We study a variety of topics from the Word of God, and encourage input from everyone.
We are dedicated to being the best representative of Jesus Christ that we can be, studying to show ourselves approved.
  All of  Vessels of Purpose  members ( not a club, just a gathering ) participate in the informal discussions.
God may give a word of knowledge to any one of us, and we are all encouraged to share. You will enjoy the fellowship and love of God within this group of dedicated women & men.


A very special thank- you to all who have so generously donated to Purses with Purpose


As part of BCCOG missionary community outreach, we are taking on helping support this outreach ministry of my niece Reganne. This is her vision and was borne out of a compassionate heart for the homeless and sexually exploited and abused women. Her outreach is an individual one, and  her ministry is supported only by donations. So if you have purses you no longer use, breathe new life into them by placing them in the hands of a woman in need. Also collecting feminine products, combs, deodorant, tooth brushes, wipes,toothpaste, shampoo.....just basic things we take for granted. Thanks!

She has been blessed to meet people in positions overseeing the needs of women in community organizations, who are willing recipients of her  Purses with Purpose.Below is a link to her website which will give in detail what her ministry is all about.

Some places accepting her purses are:

Safe Space of East Tn.

Zion Project Chattanooga, Tn. 

 Prison Ministry

and the homeless on the streets. 

 "She opens and extends her hand to the poor, And she reaches out her filled hands to the needy." Proverbs 31:20

Are you desiring Salvation?

We would like to take this opportunity to tell you about the Saving Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We have all sinned and fell short of the glory of God.

If you feel the conviction power of the Holy Spirit and would like to accept

Jesus Christ as your very own personal Savior

( our acceptance of Jesus Christ into our life is a personal matter, no one else can do it for us)

then pray the sinner's prayer.

"Lord, have mercy on me a sinner.

I ask you to forgive me of my sins and cleanse me with the blood that you shed on Calvary,

knowing that while I was yet a sinner, you died for me.

Create in me a new heart. Create in me a new way of life.

Give me wisdom to lead a holy and consecrated life before you and others.

I ask you with sincerity and humility to come into my heart now,

and by faith in you, I believe I am a new creature in Christ Jesus.

I ask this in the name of Jesus.  Amen"

If you have prayed this prayer and are sincere,

then Jesus has already came into your heart. You may not feel different, but you are.

Get in God's Word (the Holy Bible) and as you began to grow

in wisdom and knowledge, you will began to feel you are not the same person as before.

Share your experience with others. Get into a Bible believing church.

We invite you to come join in our fellowship.

 Let us know if you have made a commitment to Christ,

email us at We are here to encourage you. Praise be to God!
