We live in a rapidly changing age of innovation. And yet, it’s refreshing to walk into a resale shop and find something vintage. We love those unique, timeless discoveries. They are the classics that have stood the test of time, yet bring new life to our homes and lives. Two thousand years ago, Jesus brought a message of hope, love and forgiveness. It has been proven true for generations and still brings us new life today. Join us Sunday as we search to understand this Vintage Jesus.
HELPING WITHOUT HURTING
A new adult elective will look at ways to come alongside people living in material poverty in a Christ-honoring way. If you are interested in serving on a short-term missions trip, or simply want to become more familiar with how you can help people without hurting them, this class is strongly recommended. It has radically changed how churches across North America approach outreach and missions. The five-week class will be starting April 30 during the 9:30 a.m. service in the Community Room. Please sign up at the Info Table if you are interested.
We will have a child dedication during the worship services on May 14. If you would like to have your child dedicated to the Lord, sign up at the Info Table.
Our Seventh Annual Biker Sunday is May 21 after the 11 a.m. service. This is a fabulous morning to invite friends to ride their motorcycles to church. Pastor Ronn will pray a blessing over our guests after the service, and we will host a free lunch and activities beginning at 12:15 p.m. For more info, go to bikersunday.info.
