So, they went out and proclaimed that people should change their hearts and lives.”

Mark 6:12 




Hiskidz and Deep Blue:

During the month of January, we have been learning about the beginning of Jesus’ ministry. This week we will be talking about the calling of Levi, or Matthew. Jesus did something that was quite shocking. . . he asked a person who was despised by society to be one of his disciples. We will talk more about this on Sunday. 


In Planet 456 Bible study, we will have a quick summary review of last week’s lesson and hopefully finish up with the Overcomer movie this week. We will begin with the first lesson of our new study, Defined, Who God Says You Are, next Sunday.  This study is an 8-week Bible study guiding kids to find their identity in Christ, based on selected passages from Ephesians. This study is by the Kendrick Brothers, the authors of the film Overcomer. 





Confirmation classes for our 6th graders started up this past Wednesday, January 15. We will continue to meet every Wednesday through February 12th. We will meet at the church from 3:00 – 4:30p.m.

Sunday Night Youth

Last week we began a new Bible study called, The Twelve Outlaws. This study takes a closer look at Jesus’ apostles.

As we continue with our Fathom Series, The Broken Kingdom, the lesson this week is focused on the hope that we can find through our faith and trust in God. Even in the Biblical days, things were bad, but God sent prophets to offer the people an assurance of hope. We must remember that God is with us through all of life’s trials and tribulations.

Why were these apostles “WANTED” by Christ? Last Sunday we talked about Simon Peter. Peter was bold, and he was faithful. However, Peter also allowed doubt and fear to creep in. Peter denied Christ and acted as if he didn’t know Him. We talked about how we can relate to Peter in all of these ways, but just like with Peter, Jesus will not forsake us. He will be there when we call for Him. This Sunday night we will be studying about Andrew.


Wednesday Night Small Group

Wednesday night small group has picked back up. We will continue with the Study we began last week, What Do You Allow to Define You? This 6-week study will take us on a journey to understand who we are. The first two weeks we will begin with noting our attributes, the positive ones, as well as the negative ones. Each week we will dig a little deeper into who we are, how others see us, and how God sees us.
