WORSHIP SCHEDULE: SUNDAY @ 8:30, 9:45, 11:00am

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another-and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Hebrews 10: 24-25

Wednesday Morning Bible Study

Wednesdays, beginning Sept. 15; 9:30am; Room 646
You are invited to join a Wednesday morning Bible study. This Old Testament Bible study will use inductive Bible study techniques of observation, interpretation—and application to discover the godly wisdom found in these gems in Scripture! Ecclesiastes examines the ultimate meaning of life. Song of Solomon explores relationships. And Lamentations reveals the avoidable consequences of sin and the covenant love of God. Study books are available for $7 plus tax. This study is facilitated by Cheryl Stubbendieck.

Women’s Retreat -April 2022

Join us for the semi-annual Women’s Retreat on April 1-2, 2022. Safety is our prime concern at this time and it is our hope that this will allow more time for the COVID situation to subside and comfort levels to rise. Watch for details in the coming months as they unfold.

Grace Groups

In our hectic modern-day world, Grace Groups can offer a pause that refreshes through scripture reading, prayer, meditation, and inspirational reading. Grace Groups are made up of four people that commit to meet at least twice a month for one year, to intentionally build relationships and discipleship. Grace Groups offer time and space to grow in grace, loving and sharing friendships in Christ. New Grace Groups can form at any time. Gather up a friend or two and join a group—we’ll help with study resources and get you started. If you are feeling called to take part in this small group ministry, contact Julie Hestermann.
