Bulletin Items for March 18-24, 2018
May Musical - No Longer Slaves
We could not be more excited about the May 20 musical, “No Longer Slaves”. We all face fears. But as believers, we need to be reminded about the freedom and victory we already have in Christ. The message is timely and powerful - and the music is fresh and engaging. What we need is you! Whether you’re already in one of our choirs or not, we welcome ANYONE to come and listen and catch the vision with us!

Women’s Wednesday Morning study beginning March 28. Please join us as we start our next women’s study “Entrusted A Study of 2 Timothy” by Beth Moore. We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves. In this 6-session Bible study, Beth Moore will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Sign-up will be in the Commons and childcare is provided by reservation.
Women’s Bible Study begins Wednesday evening, March 28 at 6:00 pm in Rooms 103/105 - Hebrews: The Nearness of King Jesus by Lisa Harper. The Book of Hebrews highlights two contrasting realities.

Susan Shively will be leading this study in Rooms 103/105. Sign-up will be in the Commons. Cost of the workbook is $15.00.
