Ladies Bible Study

Ladies, please join us on Tuesday mornings beginning September 5th for a new bible study. We will be studying 1 Peter: A living Hope in Christ by Jen Wilkin. Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ.

Please sign up in the office or email Beth Halsell at dwhbbh@charter.net if you would like to participate, so we can order enough books.

Ways to Get Connected

The next Hope House Volunteer Days are August 2nd (Wed.), 4th (Fri.), 5th (Sat.), and 30th (Wed.) from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The Hospitality Team is looking for a few friendly people. If you might have an interest in joining the team, please contact the church office, or email Bonnie Wood at bdwood2@yahoo.com for more information.

Pastor’s Piece

This week we’re going to be looking at the beginnings of the church in the New Testament. As we’ll see, the church as it is described in the book of Acts was often a very exciting place to be. Then, there were other times when the church just didn’t seem to “get it.” As entertaining as these stories about the early church are, they aren’t simply supposed to be something to reminisce about- they’re meant to inform and form who we are as the church today. Come to church this week ready to join in the conversation about how we can still be “The Exciting Church” for the world today.

Blessed to bless,

Pastor Andy
