Church Family News
Join a Link Group
Our Link Groups are small groups that meet throughout the community to study the Bible, pray together, and support & encourage one another in our walks with Christ. Consider joining one of these four groups: Wedensday Evening Moms Group at Moslaks (Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood), Young Adults (Acts), Sunday Evening Group at Murrays (Philippians), Sunday Evening Group at Mitchells.
Church Family Meeting
There will be a brief church family meeting in the auditorium after the worship service today. The Elders and Facilities Team will be presenting a plan for a new roof on the church’s building for the congregation’s consideration. See Bob Gisewhite or Bryan Sones with any questions.
Be an encouragement to our college kids. See this week’s bulletin for addresses for our college kids. Are you or a family member in college and not listed? Turn in address information to Marilynn Kristofits in the office so you can be included too.
The church office will be closed this week and Marilynn Kristofits will be working remotely. You can reach her during normal office hours on her cell phone or through the church email. Voicemail at the church will be monitored and calls will be returned as well.
See You at the Pole
Reminder: See You at the Pole Day is Wednesday. West Branch students will gather at 6:40 am. Head to school early and join others in praying for your school. If you can’t make it there in person, pause your day and pray for our schools.
Harvest Prayer Time
Each month here at our church, a group of believers meet to pray for the lost in our community and the outreach ministries of our church. Their next meeting is Saturday at 7:00 am. Consider joining them in prayer.
Amy Jo Belko is beginning to look at music for the holiday season. Are you planning to sing in the choir this year? Please let Amy Jo know today.
Save the Date – Holiday Tea
Ladies be sure to save the date and join us for this ministry event on November 17th. We want everyone to be able to come and plan to offer child care. If you know you are going to join us and need help with your kids, please let Marilynn Kristofits know so this can be arranged.
International Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias and Vice Vitale, director of Zacharias Institute, will be at the Bryce Jordan Center on Friday, October 5th from 7-9 pm. Together they will speak and answer questions based on the theme “You Shall Know” (That I am Lord). For more information see the flyer on the community bulletin board in the foyer.
September is Missionary Christmas month. You still have a few more weeks to give to this special offering for our missionary families. You can be a part of blessing our Missionaries by using one of the small envelopes in the foyer or by marking your gift “Missionary Christmas” and dropping it into the offering plate.
Explore the Bible Sunday School Class
In a culture starving for truth, God is calling us to do more than read His word. He is calling us to know it and live it. That’s why Explore the Bible provides book-by-book studies for groups of adults, students, and kids. Each session takes participants deep into Scripture, revealing context essential to understanding the text’s original intent, and promoting transformation through God’s Word in everyday life. Our Sunday School classes will continue their journey and dive deep into Galatians and James. Pick up your free daily discipleship guide and join us next week for Session 5: True Freedom.
