This past Sunday, during our 8:00am worship, I spoke of what it looks like to walk in the footsteps of resurrection. Following Christ is a journey upon a path that brings about healing, life, and beauty. As any of us may look back upon our life of faith, we would hope to see how Grace has made goodness flourish with those we have encountered and shared our being. What we will look to this coming Sunday is where all of this is leading. Is it just follow Christ and keep your head down? Or is our faithfulness part of the grand movement of God in all things?
Our next movie night is May 13th at 6:30 pm. Wear your favorite pajamas, bring a blanket, and enjoy a VeggieTales movie. We'll have a snack and make a cute craft! This will be our last movie night until September.
We invite anyone in fourth grade or older to attend our next youth group event. On Friday, May 20th, we're planning a sleepover! Please let me or Heather Penrod know if you're planning to attend.
We are looking for play food and a toy cash register for the nursery. If anyone has these items and would like to donate them, please bring them to church on Sunday or drop them in the office with a note. Thanks in advance.
PENTECOST MINISTRY FAIR
Sunday, May 15 following worship. Each ministry within the church is invited to create a display informing the congregation about the good work they do and providing invitations/opportunities to serve.
Save the date and come down to the fellowship hall to learn more about the mission work within the church and the opportunities to employ your gifts to extend God's Grace in the world.
SCRIPTURA: THE GREAT BIG BIBLE STUDY
Rev. Chris will be hosting a new bible study on Wednesday evenings, beginning Wednesday, April 13 @ 6-7:30pm. The study will be an ongoing course discussing everything from the origins of books and canonization, history and authorship, sources (J,E,P,D, & Q!), styles (law, prophets, wisdom, gospels, epistles, and apocalyptic), and ideas on how to read it all for context and for current application. It is a great big bible study! And we’ll move through it in segments for 4 weeks at a time. The first segment will discuss ideas on the origins of books and the formation of the bible (how did we get the books we have and how did they come together in testaments and why didn’t certain gospels like Thomas make the cut and what about the apocrypha?). Please bring your bible, something to eat, and come and participate in this study!
