MARK YOUR CALENDARS:
Saturday, January 25: It's time for a dance, dance revolution! Actually, it's time to cheer on Selena at her dance showcase. We will be leaving the church at 6:00PM, and the show starts at 7:00PM. Let me know by Wednesday (January 22) if you want to come so we can get you a ticket!
Saturday, February 22: Parents and students, we have an opportunity to attend a Chicago Wolves hockey game. They are having a Faith and Fellowship Night, which is perfect for a parent/student outing. If you are interested in attending, please contact me so we can gauge interest before committing to ordering tickets.
February Game Night: This is for the young adults. We are following our bowling outing with a game night. Now you, too, have a chance to become a "rich uncle." Check your e-mail for more specific details.
11:30AM - 12:30AM
On Sunday, December 29, 2013, we will begin a new study series called "Mark My Words." In this series, we will study the gospel of Mark, which was chosen based on the students' interest surveys.
On Sunday, January 26, 2014, we will be reading Mark 4. In previous weeks, we have looked at repeated themes in Mark, discussed the idea of having faithful friends who are dedicated and determined to bring you to the feet of Jesus, and wrapped our hands in napkins to have a better understanding of what it might have felt like for the man with the shriveled hand to be set free by Jesus' healing.
WEDNESDAY YOUTH GROUP*:
* Please note the new times and changes. Dinner will no longer be provided, but we have an exciting new book to study and discuss!
4:00PM - 6:00PM = Hang Time
Enjoy this time dedicated to building relationships and encouraging others as we continue to face our busy weeks. Come ready for:
6:00PM - 7:30PM = Bible Study
On January 22, 2014, we will be starting a book study of The Furious Longing of God by Brennan Manning. Here is a teaser to get you excited:
Imagine a stormy day at sea: your ship yielding to a relentless wind, pummeled by crashing waves, subject to the awesome force of nature. A force that is both fierce and majestic. A power that is nothing short of furious. Such is God's intense love for His children.
Whether you attend regularly or not, you are always welcome! Come discover God's intense love for you.
