Upcoming Special Events
Men's Bible Study Begins January 10Leo Lillard to provide leadership--After a short hiatus, the Men’s Study Group will begin meeting again on Saturday, January 10 at either 8:00 or 9:00 a.m. The class will be exploring the book of Ecclesiastes. This book of wisdom explores the question of “what is the meaning of life?” The men of the church are invited to join for this time of study and fellowship.
9:00 a.m., Saturdays
The Life You've Always Wanted Study Begins January 11You are invited to join us on Sunday mornings at 11:30 in the Parlor as the pastor leads a study of the popular Best Seller, The Life You’ve Always Wanted by John Ortberg. The six week class will begin on January 11 and will include a video talk by the author. The course will explore the question, “What does true spiritual life really look like?” What keeps you from living such a life? What can you do to pursue it? If you are tired of the status quo – if you suspect that there is more to Christianity than what you have experienced, John Ortberg points to a road of transformation and spiritual vigor that anyone can take. It is one that leads to the life you have always wanted. Copies of the text will be available for $14.
11:30 a.m. Sundays

You are invited to join us of Saturday, January 31 at 6:00 p.m. for “Souper Smart Night.” You are asked to bring a crockpot of your favorite soup to share (there might be competition for the best) and then to match wits with others in games of trivia.
