THIS WEEK’S TEXT: “God Sends
His Workers into the Vineyard” – Matthew 20:1-14
Guest Speaker: Dr. Al Nucciarone
SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES
Jesus Continued: This theologically based class will be based off the book “Jesus Continued” by JD Greear and will focus on pneumatology which is the study of the Holy Spirit. Join Daniel Nauta this week as he leads the class in Classroom 1.
Priorities: This class will focus on our priorities, looking at why we do what we do and how we manage/schedule our days. Pastor Robbie will be leading this weeks’ class in Classroom 4 as he aims to teach the importance of having a biblical approach to our time.
Guest Speaker Q&A: 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 Dr. Nucciarone after the service. (MPR)

BOOK OF THE MONTH
"God is" by Mark Jones is the August book of the month! This book is a devotional guide to the attributes of God. This devotional book takes the time to work through attributes like God is triune, he is spirit, he is infinite and eternal and so many more. He breaks them up into a few pages with scripture to walk us through each! If you are interested in this book or any of our others, be sure to check out the bookshelf.
