Women’s Bible Study
Women’s Bible Study begins Wednesday evening, September 6 at 6:00pm in Rooms 103/105:
Life Principles for Worship from the Feasts of Israel which is a Bible study trail marker for finding the truth of Scripture, entering into the reality of close, intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus, and living out that relationship in every dimension of life (not just Sunday morning). This 8 lesson study examines the Seven Feasts of the Lord as presented in Scripture. Each of the Feasts presents a reality about God and about our relationship with Him. Susan Shively will be leading this study.. Sign-up will be in the Commons. Workbooks may be purchased at Lifeway in Little Rock or at www.lifeway.com at a cost of $15.00 plus shipping.

SummerSing - Next week we will have our second annual “SummerSing” the evening of the 27th. Not familiar with “SummerSing”? Missed it last year? Well, think “CarolSing” - without the Christmas songs. But this isn’t just our “regular” worship leaders. No, we want to hear from YOU. Instruments, readings, duets, trios, families, children, students – lots of latitude in this unique evening! But you need to contact Pastor Ken ASAP and let him know what you’re thinking of. After that fun time together, we’ll do what families do after a get-together in the summer: all head outside and eat watermelon. (Seed-spitting, optional.)
