ABIDE-Student Worship Experience

SUMMER ABIDE NIGHTS will be happening switching to a monthly basis through the Summer, but still from 6:30-9 p.m. in MTH 207! The goal of ABIDE is to have both a night of worship, but also a time for  middle and high school students to be in authentic and vulnerable community with each other. Rather than our usual Sunday evening Crowded House format, we break into small groups of about 3-5 people and go through 3 focuses: gratitude (what has God been up to this week), confession (what we need to give to God this week), and accountability (how we can grow closer to God this week)! Have dinner before you come, but we'll have snacks.

May 31, July 5, and August 2

Summer Bible Study

Join us for our summer study, When We Pray. Each week, we will look at a different prayer in the Bible that can inspire our own prayers. Each lesson stands alone, so come and go as your summer schedule allows!

We will start with the question so many of ask, “What is the purpose of prayer? Why, and better yet, how do I pray?” We’ll learn that God welcomes our praise and lament, our thanksgiving and intercession. We’ll see examples of how to pray when we’re alone and when we’re gathered with others. Above all, we’ll notice there’s not one right way to pray. As we draw near to God through prayer, we’ll find our faith strengthened and our hearts united to Christ. Each lesson stands alone, so come and go as your summer schedule allows!

The study begins Tuesday, June 20, at 10 a.m. in MT 201, and each lesson stands alone, so come and go as your summer schedule allows!

You Only Die Once

We've all heard of the mind-numbing scavenger hunts and guessing games that survivors often experience upon the death of a loved one. One of the most loving gifts we can leave our loved ones during this time of sadness and confusion is the identification and roadmap of essential post-mortem information. Jerry and Betty Hanlon have developed a six-session course to show you how to do just this. The course will include presentations from experts in:
• estate planning
• documents required to execute the decedent's pre- and post-death wishes
• hospice care
• options for the disposition of the loved-one's remains
• considerations for the funeral and memorial service

The course will be presented free of charge on Thursday evenings 6 to 7:30 p.m. from June 29 through August 3 in MTH A. You may bring a snack, if you wish. The course is based on Marge Jenkins' book and workbook, You Only Die Once. These may be purchased on Amazon: book: $14.99 or Kindle: $7.99: workbook: $12.99. Registration is required as space may be limited. Register HERE
