For the kids: Dismissed after the morning offering

  • There is a Children's Church service in the basement for kids 3 years old through 2nd grade.  This service is complete with worship, teaching, and an offering that the kids make the decisions on where to use it!
  • We have a Nursery in the basement for kids birth up to age 3.
  • Treasure Seekers sheets (located in the cry room) are for all ages who wish to stay for the sermon.  Kids will just grab a sheet, follow along and fill it in.  These can be turned in, after the service, to Lance for a TS coin.  Collect your coins to be able to buy some great stuff

Our Children's Church and Nursery coordinators are always looking for additional help.  If you're interested in serving please see Reann Follum for Nursery or Dixie Berger for Children's Church.


Sunday School for all ages is at 9:30AM every Sunday in the basement of the church!


Adult Sunday School: *questions, contact Kirby Berger

The adult Sunday School class will by studying the book of Judges with JD Greear.  I am very excited about this study!  Check out the links below to see the trailer to the study (same one we showed in church a few weeks ago) and the Bible Project video for the book of Judges.  At the very bottom of this email is an attachement for the handout for the study.  It has the reading plan and discussion questions.  Print it off if you wish or I will have some to handout Sunday.  

 

Book of Judges 'trailer'

 

Overview video of the Book of Judges

 

 

The following is from the study:

The book of Judges cracks a window into depths of the human soul. Watch a nation struggle with its identity and relationship to its God. Heroes and heroines arise, who seem to have the potential to save Israel. But in the end, each proves to be a broken savior that cannot deliver.

 

In this series, pastor and author J.D. Greear wades into the book of Judges to shine a light onto the muddy waters of human rebellion. The stories and truths within are not just archaic tales with no relevance for us today. Rather, J.D. works through each chapter unpacking the truth of God’s grace in the midst of human wickedness, and shows how only the divine can redeem the fallen.

 

I have tried to make a schedule before with little luck, mostly because Im not great at reading a calendar (or math) but Im going to try it again.  It will be every Sunday between now and Jun 9 excluding Easter Sunday ( April 21st).

Below is the schedule.  If you want to watch the video and read the scripture beforehand that would be great!

May Sermon Series: IMPACT


What if we set out to make a greater impact?  What will it take to look back at this year and say, "That was the year I truly stepped out in faith for Christ, and gave Him everything?"  In this new series, "IMPACT", we will be looking at four biblical characteristics of committed, impactful followers of Jesus how are ready to take on their world and make a difference.  We are not just talking about a few events in your life; we are talking a life of impact!  Join us in the month of May for IMPACT, and be praying that God will give us new hope and new opportunities to impact the world around us for Jesus!


June and July Sermon Series: FRESH


Sometimes, we just need a new perspective.  Sometimes, we need a new set of lenses to see everything around us.  Sometimes, we just need to go back to the basics.  We just need a fresh look at what is important.  In this series, "FRESH", we are going to look at the important parts of following Jesus - Worship, the Word, Mission, etc. - and go back to the Word of God and get a fresh view of how God wants us to live and grow and affect our world, and, in the process, strip away some of the hindrances that we may have put on ourselves or others, keeping all of us from being who God wants us to be in Jesus.  Join us for a FRESH take on following Jesus and living out the Gospel!
