Join us for worship this Sunday morning at 9:30.
With the New Year upon us you have likely considered a Bible reading plan and aren't sure where to start. Maybe you have tried to read the Bible in a year and get frustrated a few weeks in and end up getting behind and giving up. Perhaps you have been successful, but you looked back and remembered very little of what you read. In the coming year we want to encourage you to Abide in God's Word. Each month we will have a featured short book from the New Testament that you are encouraged to read multiple times and really know the book. There will be resources available to help you on your journey. On the first and third Sunday at 6:30 pm Pastor Mark will stream a live study on the book. Every Tuesday there will be a short devotional available on YouTube, Facebook, and audio podcast from a passage in the book of the month to encourage you to keep reading. Watch YouTube and Facebook this week for more information on resources and tips on being successful in digging into one book a month. The first book of the month will be Titus and is just 3 short chapters long. Check out the website http://abide.info for resources and information.
Intergenerational Mission Trip!
Join us for a week together in Kentucky. We will be stopping at the Creation Museum on the way there, working with Grace Covenant Ministries for a few days, and on the way home stopping at the Ark! Sign up on the sheet by the information desk. Cost is $200. Hope you consider coming along!
Installation and Ordination of new Elders and Deacons will be on January 2.
As the year comes to a close it is time for our annual reminder of how much of the Bible we have read in worship this past year.
In 2021 we heard Genesis 21:8-Genesis 36, Jude, Zephaniah, Haggai, Hebrews 7-13, 1 & 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy, Luke 1-3:22, Ezra 1-5:5, and Psalm 34:8-Psalm 49.
If you follow along with Dwell in the Word videos or on the audio podcast, we worked through Mark, Philippians, Joel, 1 Corinthians, and Acts 1-14:18.
In the coming year we will be continuing with Luke and finishing up
Genesis for our sermon texts. Our public reading of scripture will have us reading from Ezra, Song of Songs, 2 Timothy, and 1 John.
Thank you to the Sunshine Circle for the fruit and goodie basket.
