MIDWEEK/CONFIRMATION CLASSES will begin with a parent/student meeting at 5:30 pm on Wed., August 27th for all students in grades 5-8 and high school students who have not yet been confirmed and their parents. We will share our schedule for the year, hand out materials and answer any questions you may have. Some of the topics to be discussed are objectives and expectations of the midweek instruction, memory work, and worship and Sunday School attendance. Families with students in this age group should be receiving a letter soon with more information. However, we do not have a birthdate or grade level for all students in this age group so please come to this organizational meeting even if you do not receive an invitation.
STEWARDSHIP MOMENT: Luke 16:8 “For the sons of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than the sons of light.” Money is a tool that can be used for good or wicked purposes. Often unbelievers show more shrewdness in this than we Christians. If we really believe all that stuff we say in the creeds every Sunday . . . won’t that affect how we use our money?
NEW BIBLE STUDIES will begin in September. More information will be available in the next few weeks.
