Join us on Sunday as continue our sermon series, “Sent”! Pastor John will be preaching from Acts 13:4-12 with a message on “The Movement” to our call to live life on mission for God!
As part of our Sunday morning service, we will share some information on how we can help children living in poverty around the world. Please be in prayer this week about possibly sponsoring a child through Compassion International. We will have a short presentation during both the 9:30 and 11 a.m. service as we join hundreds of other churches celebrating Compassion Sunday.
Our new sermon series, “Sent” was inspired by the Bible study, The Tangible Kingdom. This study is a follow-up to The Gospel Primer, which our growth groups studied last fall. If you are looking for an incredible study that will challenge you daily in your call to live life on mission, pick up a copy of the The Tangible Kingdom at the Info Table. (There is a suggested donation of $14 for the book.)
WAR ROOM STUDY AND MOVIE
Would you like to learn more about the power of prayer in your life? Consider joining The War Room Bible study during the 9:30 a.m. service, beginning May 1. The study will kick off with a movie night, featuring The War Room, on April 30. The five-week study will incorporate clips from the movie and five challenging scriptural lessons adapted from the film. The movie and study explores the power that prayer can have on marriages, parenting, careers, friendships and other areas of life. Sign up at the Info Table to attend the study. All are welcome to the movie night.
