Put Garage Sale (and Our Youth) on Your Christmas List

Read the Bible in a Year

This week: Acts 15–19:10; 1 and 2 Thessalonians; 1 Corinthians 1–16.

Sunday Adult Education, 9:00am, Howell Auditorium

Today–Dec. 2:  Malachi: All To Him I Owe, facilitated by Josh Kutz. We have been chosen and given the privilege of being counted among God’s people, yet our lives don’t always reflect this great gift. All too often, we fall short and fail to meet our half of the bargain. Join us for a deep dive into the book of Malachi, a prophet who will challenge and convict us in our worship, our service, and our giving.

Wednesdays, 11/7–12/19, 6:30–8:00pm, Chapel

The Road Back To You– Ignorance is bliss – except in self-awareness! What you don’t know about yourself can hurt you, your relationships and your walk with God. Join us as we explore the Enneagram, a model of the nine predominant personality types. Attendees may order their books, The Road Back To You, online through Amazon ($23.58). Note: We will NOT meet November 21 or December 5.
