See you Sunday!

Prayer Meeting –  September 8
We will have a prayer gathering this Sunday, September 8, at 10:15 am to honor God and ask him to bless our church and our fall. Everyone is welcome to join us.

Guest Sunday
Have you ever wanted to invite someone to church, but was not sure what Sunday would be good for that?  If you answered “Yes,” then Guest Sunday is right for you. September 15 will be Guest Sunday when we do the service with a special focus on guests. We always try to do things in a way that is welcoming and we will do it even more so on that day, taking extra time to explain things. The message will be for everyone, especially for guests. Take advantage of Guest Sunday to invite your friends and family to church with you.

Overcome Your Inner Enemies – Lessons for David’s Defeat of Goliath
The shepherd boy, David, defeating the the giant, champion warrior, Goliath is one of the greatest victories in history. David defeated his enemy with a sling and a stone, but before that David had to overcome his inner enemies of fear, doubt, resentment, and failure. Join us starting September 15 (Guest Sunday) as God teaches us from David’s victory how to overcome these and other inner enemies we face.

Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No To Take Control of Your Life. Does your life feel like it’s out of control? Perhaps you feel you have to say yes to everyone’s requests, especially if you are a Christian. Maybe you find yourself readily taking responsibility for others’ feelings and problems. Or perhaps you focus so much on being loving and unselfish that you’ve forgotten your own limits and limitations. Or maybe it’s all of the above. This study will help you learn when to say yes and know how to say no in order to take control of your life and set healthy, biblical boundaries with your spouse, children, friends, parents, co-workers, and even yourself. Led by Russell Kraft.

12:30 pm
Life Lessons from the Book of Esther … studies on the providence of God, His perfect way, His perfect timing ‘for such a time as this.’ Led by Norma Lozada.

Core Christianity: Finding Yourself In God’s Story. If you are a Christian, you likely pray, go to church, and read your Bible on a regular basis. Still, with all the busyness of life, you may not be exactly sure how your faith fits into everything you are doing each day. This study delves into the core truths of the Christian faith to equip you to more fully experience the joy God has for you in Jesus Christ and encourage you to have the confidence to share your faith with others. Led by Jon Dyke.
