SUNDAY MORNING…June 10, 2012


We’re working our way through the Book of Nehemiah. Tomorrow…Chapter 4 – Are you facing some difficult decisions? Needing to trust more in the Lord? Is the devil telling you “There’s no way this is going to work out.”? Nehemiah gives us the answer and I’ll share it with you in the morning. Growth Groups at 9:30 am, Contemporary Worship at 10:30 am. See you in the morning!

“FIRST STEPS” – New class starting soon!

CLASSES BEGIN – FIRST SUNDAY IN MAY.  A new Growth Group class, “FIRST STEPS” will start soon. If you are someone who is searching for “something that’s missing” in your life, or a brand new Christian who would like to know more about what you believe and what you believe or an older Christian who wants to grow deeper in your faith… this class is for you!

It will be very informal. We will have materials to look at each Sunday morning and an attempt will be made to answer the questions that you might have about spiritual things. It will last for seven weeks and will be a revolving type format. Which means, if you come into the class during week # 3, you would stay in the class until you have gone through weeks 4-5-6-7-1-2- and then you would be finished! So even if you miss the first couple of classes, you can “jump in” at any time and stay until you have had seven weeks of classes! The classes begin each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. – followed by Worship Service at 10:30 a.m.  Everyone is invited to be part of these classes and we look forward to meeting you! (There might even be donuts to munch on…we’ll see!)


we will CELEBRATE the Resurrection of Jesus Christ this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. – our Praise Band will rock it out…the message will be one of those “DO NOT MISS” messages! If you remember last year’s message…you will not want to miss this year’s message! We will have Growth Groups beginning at 9:30 a.m. – then Coffee, juice and snacks from 10:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. and our Celebration Service begins at 10:30 a.m.  This is an excellent time to invite your friends, neighbors, co-workers, class-mates and family. They WILL come if you invite them. See you Sunday!

WE’RE “BUSTIN” ANOTHER MYTH TOMORROW! We will ask the question “Does a Valley mean I took a wrong turn?”  Sometimes, we think God is punishing us or correcting us for doing something, even if we thought it was according to His will for our lives.

Myth Busters continues…

THIS SUNDAY (February 19) – — we “break” another myth. This week…”Does God Bring Good Luck” or in other words….”If I am living my life for God, shouldn’t I expect more blessing than someone who isn’t living for God?”  FIND OUT — THIS Sunday at 10:30 am!

Myth Busters… every Sunday we “bust” a myth –

come out and hear the most popular Urban Spiritual Myths “BUSTED!”  We “busted” another Urban Spiritual legend today at church! Does God have a blueprint for your life? No…He has a game-plan. A blueprint has very specific instructions and you must follow it to a “T.” A game-plan has flexibility and allows us to choose. So put God first in your life and be part of helping to build the Kingdom. What myth will we “bust” next week? Well… you’ll have to come and see for yourself!
