VBS 2016

Vacation Bible School is coming up quickly! This year’s theme is SonQuest Rainforest and there will be lots to learn through a variety of great activities. Those participating will learn about God, Jesus and the Bible through story time, crafts, games and even refreshments. It is going to be a great time and all children age 4 through those who have completed 5th grade are invited. VBS 2016 will be held the week of June 20-24, meeting in the mornings from 9:00 until 11:25 AM. We hope that you will register your children and grandchildren and invite neighbors, friends and anyone else you know to participate.

At the Movies 2016

Our “At the Movies” message series is returning this summer during both the 8:30 and 11:00 worship services. During this series, we will be looking at various movies for themes and the issues they raise for us as followers of Jesus Christ. The series will begin on June 5 and continue through July 17. We will be doing things a bit differently this year, however. We will refer to the movie on Sunday morning and then everyone is invited to come watch the movie together here at church on Mondays at 6:30 PM. We will begin the series with the movie “Concussion” which stars Will Smith on Sunday, June 5 and the movie will be shown on Monday, June 6. We hope you will join us!

Sanctuary Re-dedication Service

We will gather for one worship service at 10:00 AM on Sunday, June 19 as we rededicate the newly updated sanctuary. As you know, many improvements are being made and this will be our first Sunday back worshiping in the sanctuary. This is going to be a very day of worship and we hope that you will join us. You are also encouraged to invite family, friends and other guests to come with you.

And then, following worship, we will gather in the Community Room for a potluck dinner. Drinks will be provided but we ask that you bring a dish to share as well as your own table service. It will be a great time of fellowship for our congregation.

Worship in the Community Room

Due to the work that will be done in the sanctuary beginning in mid-April, Sunday morning worship will be moved to the Community Room beginning April 17. We will continue with both worship services, Traditional at 8:30 and Contemporary at 11:00, throughout this time. It is expected that our first Sunday back in the sanctuary will be June 12. During this time, we are asking people to enter the building through the main entrance on the east side of the building. As most know, access to the second floor Community Room is available by elevator. Obviously, this will bring some changes to the way we do worship during this period. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

New Series: Life Verse

Many people have a verse of scripture that they hold particularly dear in their life. It may be a theme for their life or it holds a particular word of hope. For instance, one popular verse comes from the book of Jeremiah: For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11). Beginning April 3 and continuing for several weeks, we will take a deeper look at some of these verses in a series entitled “Life Verse.” Please join us for this series—you may come away with a new appreciation for your verse or maybe you will come away with a new Life Verse!

Noon Bible Study

We will begin a new study of Paul’s letter to the Galatians on April 18. The 10-week study will meet in the small dining room on Mondays from 12:00 to 1:00 PM. Galatians has been called “one of the most significant” of the books in the New Testament. It deals with some critical issues such as faith and justification. During this study we will make use of the “Paul for Everyone” commentary on Galatians by N.T. Wright.

Celebrating the Resurrection

Join us for a great celebration of the resurrection on March 27. This year, we will have one big Easter service beginning at 10:00 AM! People from both services will come together for a joyful worship ser- vice praising God for the good news of Easter. The morning will begin with a light breakfast in the Community Room at 9:00 AM and an Easter Egg Hunt for the children at 9:30 AM. This will be a Sunday you don’t want to miss! So, mark it on your calendar.
