A Note From Janice
Hello! We have exciting news. We are opening a men's Sunday School class in August. In fact it begins August 2nd. 'For the man who has everything,' we have a new offering. This class is in response to many requests over the last few years. Ron Pierce will take our men on an exciting journey through the Bible. They will visit many familiar places and also some not so familiar. They will visit old friends and patriarchs and some more obscure but interesting Bible characters as well. They will exam God's plan for men and man's role in; family, church, and the Kingdom's work. All men are welcome, no age limit!! The new classroom is on the ground floor, across from the drinking fountains. Come and drink form the living water.
Our Church families are closing down summer activities in August and winding up for what's to come in the new school year. Time seems to go by much too quickly. Our Sunday School Promotion Sunday is August 19th. This is when a few of our children get to move into a new classroom with a new teacher; as they turn 2 1/2, enter kindergarten, third grade, middle school, and then college. It is an exciting Sunday, mixed with tears and smiles of anticipation.
Steeling the Mind Bible Conference, sponsored by Compass International, is Saturday, September 19, in Denver. This is a Bible conference I strongly encourage our SS teachers to attend each year. It skips the milk and goes straight for the meat of the Word (I Cor 3:2). It is a full day of speakers from 9 to 9. To name a few speakers for this year; Dr. Ed Hindson (Liberty U), Dr. Ron Rhodes, and Shahram Hadian (an Iraqi born Muslim who is a born-again believer). I have heard Shahram speak before, he is interesting, informative, and awaking. The fellowship is wonderful. Several of you have gone with me in the past years. I can get us special rates. Please let me know if you are interested this year. Everyone is welcome to come, you don't have to be a teacher to enjoy and benefit from the day. We usually car pool. To have such an excellent conference so close and so affordable, we should certainly use the opportunity to attend. You leave the conference with much to think about, study on, and pray for. Please let me know if you might be interested. I will soon be ordering brochures.
September holds the three Fall Feasts of Israel; Feast of Trumpets (14), Day of Atonement (23), and Feast of Tabernacles (28). Could make for an interesting study. Some scholars think Jesus was born in September, probably on the Feast of Tabernacles. So may I be the first this year to wish you a Merry Christmas.
If you have any questions about our Sunday School classes please feel free to contact me; 650-0558.
Love In Christ,
