Messy People: Life Lessons from Imperfect Biblical Heroes - Women's Bible Study

By Jennifer Cowart

God can turn your messy life into a masterpiece! - Every life gets messy at times. Whether it's a messy house or a messy situation, God can restore and use you. In this 6-week study of some messy biblical people, you will learn that God uses broken people, restores broken hearts, and helps us deal with the hard moments of life. Each session focuses on a different character.

We are looking for Greeters for Sunday mornings starting September 19th for Back to Church Sunday. Greeters will look a little different then in the past.

A Greeter's description is:

1. Create a welcoming environment.


2. Offer coffee and make connections.

Greeters offer guests coffee and make connections. 

3. Make introductions.

Greeters introduce the guests to the teacher/leader of small groups and Sunday School Classes. It’s helpful if the greeter and group members are wearing name tags.

4. Provide Welcome packet materials.

These are located on the Welcome Center stand along with a bulletin

5. Introduce the pastor.

Before or after the worship service the greeter introduces the guests to the pastor and other staff members as appropriate. Our pastor and staff really appreciate this because it makes follow-up on their part much easier as they can now place a name and face. Greeters can be some of the most important people to Blue Rock!!

See Stephanie Doell if interested-bluerockstephanie@gmail.com.

There is a sign-up sheet on bulletin board outside office. 

Senior Citizens Group will meet Tuesday, September 21st at 11:30 am at the Parlor House.

 

 

The excitement is building. Be a part of the excitement while we create a whole new look for the foyer!

Please pardon our appearance during this transformation.
