GO BE THE CHURCH

Join us this Sunday for the start of our series, 'Go Be The Church.' This week, we're getting into the heart of what the church is and what it means to be involved. We'll kick things off by tackling a common challenge that many American churches face and brainstorming ways to overcome it together. Cannot wait to see you on Sunday!
Join us at Tompkins High School at 10:00 am. The link to watch LIVE is on our YouTube Channel. You can go to our home page on our website or our App to connect.


God bless,
Pastor Scott

WOMEN'S MINISTRY BIBLE STUDY:
The Ladies Daytime Bible study will begin on Thursday, 02/15 from 9:30-11:30 am.  We will conclude on Thursday, 4/25, taking the week of 03/11 off for Spring Break.  We will be studying “Breathe”, (5 weeks) and “The Faithful”, (5 weeks), by Priscilla Shirer.  
 
“Breathe” is a study based on making room for Sabbath. Priscilla Shirer says, “One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us.  By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God's greatest gifts. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted, then the concept of Sabbath will change your life.”
 
“The Faithful” is a study “that explores crucial moments in the lives of five Old Testament figures—Esther, Gideon, Malachi, Nehemiah, and Hosea. Through their stories, discover how God uses the lives of ordinary people for His glory and the good of His people. Strengthen your faith as you walk alongside these larger-than-life figures who all chose to obey God no matter the circumstances.”
 
The Breathe book is $13 and The Faithful book is $18.  Books will be available for purchase on the first day of class.
