ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL STUDY





The current study series is The Best Question Ever:  Learning to Foolproof Your Life, by Andy Stanley.  This series started Sunday, November 4th.

This series is introducing us to "one single question that will revolutionize the way you make decisions".


Join us for Sunday School at 9 AM!


In addition, a Sunday evening study series will be starting in January, focusing on the Andy Stanley series Go Fish.  More details to come.


PRAYER REQUESTS FOR THE PRAYER MEETING

There is a table set up in the Narthex with pen, paper, and a Prayer Box.  Write down your prayer requests and drop them in the Prayer Box.  Every Wednesday evening at 8 PM we gather in a prayer meeting in the church library.  The Prayer Box will be opened, then heads will bow, and prayers lifted for your needs and concerns.  

ALL are welcome to attend our special time of prayer every Wednesday evening.
TEACHERS AND HELPERS WILL BE NEEDED

Opportunities and needs will come soon for the following Mt. Olivet project:

The J.A.M. Club will be for those children in first through fourth grades.  This will be a group that meets during Worship Service, like the "Branch Out" Group, which caters to those children in fifth grade and older.

Please prayerfully consider assisting in this ministry activity.
