SUNDAY'S COMING This Sunday we're beginning a four-week series on how the resurrection of Jesus changes everything: a new start, a new story, a new family, and a new destiny are the specific changes we'll be considering.
This week offers us "A New Start." When a person confesses their need for Christ and profess him as Lord, something fundamentally new happens. We'll see from Romans 6 that in baptism believers are united to Christ: united in his death and united in his resurrection. We live a new life! A fresh start, a new beginning, old sin gone, new life begun.
Are you ready for a fresh start?
~ Pastor Jon
This Sunday, April 19-May 10 we will be having three Worship Services each Sunday. Starting times will be 8:30am, 9:50am, and 11:10am. Sunday School for all ages will be during the 9:50am service. Children & Worship will be dismissed during the 8:30am and 11:10am services.
Our Adult Sunday School Opportunities this week are:
- Questions of Life (Fellowship Hall)
- This weeks topic: How do we respond as Christians to the issue of Immigration? Come out for the final class in this series as we discuss ways we can take steps to be involved in this struggle and opportunity. You will not want to miss guests such as Amanda Bahena (Immigration lawyer in Sioux Center) who will help us wrestle with this.
