2. FAD Night - FAD (Faith and Discipleship) Night is in full swing and we would love to have you be a part of this time of fellowship! FAD Night is a time for us to share a simple meal together and then break off into our groups; children, youth, and adults. After that we come back together for a time of music and prayer.
FAD Night runs each Thursday from 5:30pm-7:30pm. To RSVP for FAD Night, so our wonderful cooks can plan, please call the church office, sign up at the Connection Table, or email the office by clicking here.
3. New Bible Study - As FAD Night gets started again, so does another Bible Study opportunity as we go Scriptural this time with the Immersion study of the Gospel of Luke. Journey inside the pages of Scripture to meet a personal God who enters individual lives and begins a creative work from the inside out.
Shaped with the individual in mind, Immersion encourages simultaneous engagement both with the Word of God and with the God of the Word to become a new creation in Christ. Immersion, inspired by a fresh translation--the Common English Bible--stands firmly on Scripture and helps readers explore the emotional, spiritual, and intellectual needs of their personal faith. More importantly, you’ll be able to discover God’s revelation through readings and reflections.
This class will be offered each Thursday at 10am and again in the evening as part of our FAD night, in the Fellowship Hall, from September 4th - October 23rd. It is never too late to join and we would love to have you be a part of this time!
4. Advent Challenge - We are at just about at the half way point of our challenge this year and we are just about half way to our goal of $5,000. This year the monies raised will be split between a local and global charity. Of our goal, $2,900 will go to our global charity, Stop Hunger Now, as we strive to host another meal packaging event to help those children around the world that are suffering from malnourishment. The other $2,100 will go to our local mission, a Church Has Left the Building event, scheduled for early 2015.
Please prayerfully consider how you might give, above and beyond your normal giving, to support this challenge so we may reach out and share the love of Christ with other people. If you want more information about this challenge, including updates for how much you have raised, please click here.
Over the years the membership in some of these groups have declined to where much of the work on a particular week is falling to just a few. I want to encourage each of you to consider joining these people to help out one or two weeks a month. Bring a dish to share, grab a rag afterwards to clean the tables, or pitch in in any other of the numerous ways you have the ability. By each of us continuing to work together, we can continue to enjoy the beauty and blessing of Sunday lunch together! Thanks for your consideration.
Take care and see you all Sunday!
