This Week's Need to Know!

THIS WEEK’S TEXT: “This is the Sign of the Covenant” Genesis 9:8-17
Taught by: Pastor Tim Boger

Proclaiming the True Gospel: This class will be taught by Mark Loewen in Classroom 1 as he teaches through the topic of evangelism alongside the book, "The World Tilting Gospel." We aim to study the True Gospel of Jesus Christ so that we can share it with anyone and everyone that we encounter. 
Broken Bread: How to Stop Using Food and Fear to Fill Spiritual Hunger: This women's Sunday School class will be taught by Brianna Batdorf in Classroom 4 as she teaches through this book. We will study a theology of food so that we can stop using food and fear to fuel our spiritual hunger.  If you are in this class, please bring a recipe to share this week!
Genesis 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 Pastor Tim after the service. (MPR)

"A Praying Church: Becoming a People of Hope in a Discouraging World" by Paul Miller is a compelling guide that delves into the essential role of prayer within the church community. Miller passionately advocates for transforming congregations into vibrant, prayerful communities. With profound insight and practical wisdom, this book emphasizes the necessity of a deep, authentic prayer life in every aspect of church ministry, leadership, and congregational unity. Offering a rich blend of theological foundation and real-life examples, Miller encourages churches to foster a culture of fervent prayer, fostering spiritual growth and a deeper connection with God. "A Praying Church" is a valuable resource for pastors, church leaders, and members seeking to enrich their understanding and practice of prayer in the context of the church.
