Advent 2022 graphic.png

ADVENT 

Advent begins Sunday, November 27th.  Join us as we celebrate Advent with "The Songs of Christmas"! Songs are powerful because they are often a response to a profound experience. When we feel joy, we often burst forth in song. When we are deeply hurting, lament pours onto the pages. The songs we sing reflect what our hearts worship. This Advent, we are studying songs that were sung by Bible characters in response to God’s greatest gift, Jesus Christ. The discussion question for this 2nd week of Advent can be found HERE.  For past week's discussion questions click HERE.  The new Advent booklet "Lighting the Candles" can be found HERE.

Adult Learning Group .png

ADULT LEARNING GROUP

As we begin this new ministry year, our rally cry from Resolved 2022 is “Walk Worthy”. To help us put this call into its proper context, the Thursday night learning group will be focused on the New Testament letter of Colossians. In it, we will see that our ability to “walk worthy” is totally dependent on, and flows from, our relationship with Jesus. Paul’s letter shows us that everything we need to live out our faith in a fallen world is found in Christ alone. So join us Thursday evenings as we explore our sufficiency in Christ.

WHEN: Thursday evenings beginning 9/29
TIME: 6:45 - 8:00pm
WHERE: Fellowship Hall
TEACHER: Pastor Dennis

FALL 2022 OPPORTUNITIES FOR WOMEN 

TWBS (Thursday Women's Bible Study)

“Join us as we study the life of David and draw closer to God as He's revealed to us in the Psalms that David wrote directly to Him.  While we know David to be the shepherd boy hero who became king of Israel, these Psalms reveal his innermost thoughts and feelings as he passed through the ups and downs of life.  We will discover together that David was an imperfect human like us, but one who understood perfectly that God’s love for him was steadfast and his deliverance assured.”  
WHEN:
9/15-12/15 (skipping Thanksgiving)
TIME: 9:30-11:30 a.m.
