MARK YOUR CALENDARS:
THANK YOU to everyone who volunteered at The Race That's Good For Life on Sunday, April 6. The weather was beautiful, and we had a wonderful time serving in our community.
Sunday, April 20: Sunday School will NOT be meeting this day, because it's Easter! Enjoy the special time to celebrate the resurrection of Christ with your friends and family.
COMING SOON: We're jumping on the boat and seeing the new movie Noah. We will have a character study of Noah, as he is portrayed in the Bible, before viewing the movie. Keep your eyes on your e-mail for future details. If you are interested but not on my e-mail list, feel free to contact me, and I'll keep you in the loop.
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.
We are more than halfway done with the book of Mark, and we've been learning so many fun things! Recently, we studied Mark 10 and discussed the idea of serving others, based on Jesus' words on Mark 10:43-44. Each student chose a way to serve people in their lives, and they accepted this challenge for two weeks in a row!
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
Last week, on April 2, we completed Brennan Manning's book. This week (April 9), we'll be celebrating with a movie night. Feel free to join us for some fun and laughter.
Our next study will be a book by C.S. Lewis. 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.
