NOT YOUR PARENTS' BIBLE STUDY: Join us at 9:00 a.m. in Room 222 for a brief video reflection on Scripture led by pastor, author and filmmaker Rob Bell. This Sunday the title is "STORE." When we’re talking about calling and mission and purpose--what we’re going to give our lives to--one of the questions we often ask is, ‘What do you love?’ But there’s another question that we can ask. ‘What makes you angry?’ Because sometimes anger is a gift from God that motivates us to make a change. Come join us as we learn about Jesus' anger and our own.
FAITH SEEKERS are studying Basic Christian Doctrine by John Leith at 9 a.m. in Room 124. Our current topic is salvation and how justification and sanctification are united in the experience of salvation. In justification God turns toward human beings; in sanctification, God turns human beings toward himself. Sanctification is a process that continues throughout human life.
LUNCHES FOR THE HOMELESS: Please pick up bags in the Fellowship Hall! Fill each with a large peanut butter sandwich, a bag of chips, a bag of cookies, a small container of applesauce, a juice box or Capri Sun, a piece of fruit, a napkin, and a plastic spoon. Lunches due May 26th.
NNEMAP urgent needs are coffee and salt, flour and sugar; hygiene items, toilet paper and large size diapers. Please deposit items into the NNEMAP bin in the Fellowship Hall.
