Experiencing the Spirit
 
The first Christians “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6) shaking the gates of hell even in the face of severe persecution.
 
The result: People all around “were filled with wonder and amazement” (Acts 3:10)
 
 
 
What can make the same impact on Christians today?
 
God’s Holy Spirit is ready to answer that for us in an awesome way.

Summer Support Group

 

The long, hot days of summer can be hard on everyone, but especially when you have lost a dear one. We are offering you a safe, cool haven to experience support and compassion for your loss.

 

No need to register. No need to call the church office. No books. No videos. This is a “drop-in when you can” support group. Feel free to bring a friend!

 

Pastor Stephanie will facilitate the group beginning Thursday, July 8 in the Fellowship Hall Meeting Room from 10:30 to 11:30 AM. We will provide the cool water!

LIFE CHANGING BIBLE STUDY
 
EVERY THURSDAY
This weekly Bible study will be held via Zoom every Thursday at 1:30.
Please join in whenever you are available.
 
We will use the “Life Journal” which identifies scripture readings for each day of the week.
You can purchase a journal from the church office or at https://www.liferesources.cc/
It’s okay if you don’t have one. We will give you the daily scriptures.
 
We will read the passage together and then each of us will do the following:
S – Identify which scripture verse spoke to you.
O – What is your observation for this verse – what does it mean to you?
A – How can you apply the meaning to your life?
P Pray that God will help you change based on your application of the verse.
 
Following our group study, everyone is encouraged to read the scripture daily and do SOAP in a journal. During the course of our time together, you can share any meaningful passages.
 
The most important or life changing aspect of this study, is that we get into the habit of reading the Word daily. If you can’t make a Zoom session, it is okay. Unlike an ongoing Bible Study,
you just pick up the next time you attend.
 
Hope you will join us!
