For Sunday School beginning April 27 we will have Life Groups.
topic will be "Connected, My Life in the Church." Many Christians have
developed a faulty view of what it means to be a church member. Many
talk about our church in terms of what we get out of it. This consumer
mentality focuses on the perks we gain from the church, which makes
church membership sound more like club membership. But church
membership requires more of us. How do we get connected and stay
connected to a church family? Join us for this study based in

We would like to get our team together early and begin looking at the
availability and cost of airline tickets. If you are interested please
call the church office and pick up a short term mission application in
the foyer. This is a perfect opportunity to get a feel for missions and
allow God to stretch and grow you!

MUGGs is here!!! The 2nd Tuesday of each month, from September through May, moms with kids of all ages (living at home) gather to learn to be Moms Understanding God’s Grace.

This year, we will be watching the DVD series by Susie Larson entitled, “Your Beautiful Purpose, Discovering and Enjoying What God Can Do Through You.” Susie speaks to 3 types of women:
1) the woman with a buried passion, a desire in her heart to be fulfilled,
2) the woman who is barely alive, hardly passionate, and
3) the woman who is earnest in her walk with Jesus, but doesn’t resonate with words like dream or calling.
“Let God breathe a fresh purpose into your soul. We so want each day to matter – to serve God in big and small ways. But how, especially when everyday responsibilities, work, fears, and other obstacles get in the way? Like a trusted friend, Susie Larson shares practical scriptural ways to overcome whatever keeps us from living fully in God’s will. Susie will help you learn to:
Discern the best use of your time and gifts
Confidently pursue God’s unique desires for you
Stretch your faith and deepen your impact.”
Come join other Moms as we look to God for His plan for our days and moments. We would love to have you! Call Beccy with questions at 454-0941.
