News:

~ Sundays at 9 a.m.: 

~ General Bible study: Currently, we are continuing our “Big Picture” study of the redemptive history of God’s work among His people. No study materials needed.  All are welcome!

~ Kid’s Bible study: An 9 a.m. alternative for kids ages 3-12.  We are going through Generations of Grace, a gospel-centered curriculum studying God’s redemptive plan from Creation to Revelation.  If you have any questions, contact Sean or Liz Sulonen.

 

~ Wednesday evenings at 7:30:  All church prayer meeting.  We set aside this time during the week to pray together as a church body.  All ages are welcome to join in praising and thanking God as well as addressing specific prayer requests. 

 

~ Yearly Bible reading plan: The elders encourage the body to read the Scriptures.  A unique way we can do this together is to follow a year-long Bible reading plan.  If you would like to be a part of this, there are copies of the reading plan on the welcome table in the front corner of the multi-purpose room.  Contact Carl Fletcher or Mike Akin if you have questions. 

 

~ Do you have produce, clothes, or other items you would like to share with the body?  Please set out food items on a folding table by the kitchen.  Non-food items can be set out on a folding table by the nursery at our monthly evening meeting.  Books and media will need to be approved by the elders in advance.  Please be responsible for cleaning up anything you bring.

Happy Birthday!
