OTHER WEEKLY SERVICES
Sunday School Update:
In an effort to bring back our Sunday routine, we will be offering Sunday School starting Sunday, March 7th, during out normal 9:15 time period with the following limitations:
1. There are two options for Adult Sunday School (described below). The larger adult class will meet in Common Ground and the International Class will meet in the Sanctuary due to social distancing requirements. Children ages 4 through 4th grade will be meeting in the Library. Our 5th through 7th grade class will be meeting in the Cinema Room and our 8th through 12th grade class will be in the Café. Similar to our Worship Service, Nursery (0-3) will be a crying room available for parents to be with their children.
2. Mask are recommended but not required for these classes. Please come as you are most comfortable - mask on or off. We do ask that if you exhibit any symptoms of COVID that you refrain from attending. Coffee will NOT be served at this time, so we encourage you to bring it from home, if you desire.
We are excited to return to these amazing learning opportunities and look forward to seeing you there!
Adult Option 1 - Sanctuary - Steve Minnich - Topic: "Call in the New Testament" - The lessons for the quarter focus on God's calling of individuals to specific ministries according to His plans. The New Testament sees a broad calling of all people to salvation and a narrower calling of certain individuals to specific ministries in the church. We will seek to understand God's means and methods in both the Old and New Testaments, and together learn more about how God calls people to join his plan for us today.
Adult Option 2 - Common Ground - Rae Huneke - Topic: "Let's Get Together" - This Sunday School hour will be a time of conversation, questions, encouragement and sharing all bathed in scripture. We want to connect and become the family of God during this time of disconnectedness. If you have any questions, connect with Rae.
Additional thoughts from our Pastors:
This plan we are using is not meant to be permanent, nor is it perfect. We are aware of the competing opinions in our community and on social media surrounding the pandemic. As your leaders, we want you to hear our hearts. Our mission remains constant: to preach the good news to those in need. We desire to posture ourselves as an invitational church and not as a church that is arrogant and better than other fellowships, nor as a church that feeds the flames of fear and panic. We want to be a healing community for people to find restoration in Jesus Christ.
We are praying for God's Spirit to bring an awakening to his people that will promote the good news to people in our surrounding regions. We hope that you will join with us in that prayer and that you will remain unified in partnering with us in ministry. Regardless of where you stand on all of the above, we love you and God loves you and the church has a mission to fulfill in every age. Let’s keep our focus on Jesus and the God we serve.
