MARK YOUR CALENDARS:
It's the start of a new school year, and we have a ton of fun things in the works. Remember to check your e-mail and read the Tower Tidings to keep in the loop. Some important dates:
Wednesday, October 22 = We will NOT be meeting due to my production of Frankenstein. Please say a prayer for the health and safety for the cast and crew during tech week.
Sunday, October 19 = Mission Sunday! Please plan on attending and learning how you can get involved in missions both locally and internationally.
Sunday, October 26 = Young adults will be going on a Zombie Safari in the evening.
Week of November 3 = Youth group will start meeting on TUESDAYS rather than WEDNESDAYS. We will still be meeting at the same time, but the day we meet has changed.
Wednesday, November 26 = Volunteering with Feed My Starving Children in Aurora. This is a church-wide event, and it's perfect for families.
11:30AM - 12:30AM
On Sunday, October 5, we'll be starting a study on the Book of Judges. This book is full of people who were consistently making mistakes. After the death of Joshua, there was no strong leader for the Israelites, and so they fell into sin. Time after time, they turn away from God. And time after time, God forgives them.
So this is the story of an unfaithful people and a faithful God.
Join us as we learn what this means for our lives and how we can experience the same love and faithfulness of God.
WEDNESDAY YOUTH GROUP:
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
We are currently studying Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. We have journeyed through the first three sections of the book and are now in the fourth and final section.
Lewis was born in 1898 and died in 1963. He was one of the most influential writers of his time, and he is arguable one of the most influential writers of our time. His insight transcends time and culture. We hope to study his works and find ways to apply them to our own lives.
