This Week's Need to Know!

THIS WEEK’S TEXT: “Fellowship – Sharing a Christ-Filled Life” Acts 2:42, 2:44-47
Taught by: Daniel Nauta

Jesus Continued: This class will be canceled this week due to Daniel Nauta preaching on Sunday. If you normally attend this class, we encourage you to join Daniel in the MPR for the Church 101 Q&A class.
Priorities: This class will focus on our priorities, looking at why we do what we do and how we manage/schedule our days. Pastor Stuart will be leading this weeks’ class in Classroom 4 as he aims to teach the importance of having a biblical approach to our time.
Church 101 Q&A: As we go through the Church 101 series in our Sunday Morning Worship time, questions may arise. This class will be formatted as a question and answer time where the questions that you have can be submitted on Sunday and discussed during Sunday School. There will be a QR code on your bulletin on Sunday Morning that you can scan and then submit your questions anonymously. After the service, during Sunday School we will sit down and dialogue through your questions together, diving deeper into God’s Word. Be sure to submit your questions on Sunday and join Daniel Nauta after the service. (MPR)
