Acts Bible Study

ACTS: THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

Jesus unleashes the power of the Holy Spirit upon His people. The Book of Acts records this historical impact in the lives of people, cities and continents and lays the foundation of God’s work in our present day. In this study, you will meet the key personalities of the book and visit the locations with multimedia presentations where it all happened. Learn what the Holy Spirit’s pattern has been and still is for our day in exalting Jesus Christ and building His Church. The Spirit who was at work then is still at work today! He wants to use you in this generation.

Plan to attend on Wednesdays from January 9–March 6, from 6:30-8 PM. Bring a Bible, notebook, and pen. Childcare provided through AWANA. Sign up at the Info Desk or by email.

"Footsteps of Paul" Tour

APPREHENDED. REDEEMED. SENT TO CHANGE THE WORLD.

The figure of the Apostle Paul stands uniquely in history at the crossroads of redemption. Exquisitely trained in the highest forms of religious discipline and thought, equipped with a brilliant mind and born with flame of fervor that consumed everything in its path, he was a man of impact. A man of consequence.

While it was set in his heart to stamp out the early church and to rid the world of its influence, he could hardly have anticipated the life-altering encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus. The result set Paul on a journey that would lead generations to Christ!

We invite you on a journey through the lands so richly impacted by his ministry and featured in the pages of Scripture...Corinth, Ephesus, Patmos, Crete and more...by land and by sea!

Be changed forever.

Women's Breakfast

Ladies, we’re looking forward to a wonderful time together on Saturday, December 1, at 9:30 AM! The theme of the morning is “Beautiful Inside & Out” and we’re excited to have author/speaker Jill Swanson as our special guest.

It would be easy to believe that Jill was born with exceptional looks and style, but she is living proof that beauty begins within. Underneath her impeccable exterior is evidence of a profound challenge. Jill was born with a rare birth defect.

This lifelong issue has given Jill deep respect for the power of spirit, attitude and grace. At a very young age, she gained special sensitivity to the impact of appearance and has devoted her life to helping people always be their very best, inside and out!

$20 Tickets will be on sale in the Foyer on Sundays during the month of November. (Last day to sign-up is November 25.) Grab a girlfriend and get ready for a BEAUTIFUL morning!

Blood Drive

Blood is essential for life: it carries oxygen and nutrients throughout the body, fights infections, and helps heal wounds. And everyone has this self-generating resource that can be generously given to others—when and where it is needed most.

  • Accidents happen 24/7 that put our friends, family, and neighbors in danger  
  • Blood transfusions save the lives of cardiac patients during surgery
  • Premature infants come into the world often needing blood to survive

You or someone you know will need blood.

If not personally in need, at some point we will all know a friend, neighbor, family member, or co-worker who needs a blood transfusion. In fact, 1 out of 3 people will need blood in their lifetime. From natural disasters to unforeseen catastrophes, emergency hospital procedures to life-long battles with chronic diseases such as sickle cell, the demand for blood is constant. The supply is not. And since there is no substitute, only volunteer blood donors can roll up their sleeves and save lives. 

Memorial Blood Center's bus will be here on Wednesday, September 19 in the afternoon. Please consider giving blood—you can save a life! Sign up at the Care Kiosk in the Foyer at Church or contact Parish Nurse Judy Petersen by email.
