This Week's Need to Know!

THIS WEEK’S TEXT: “Fearfully and Wonderfully Made” Psalm 139:13-14
Taught by: Pastor Tim Boger

SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES
Following Jesus: How Do I Live as a Christian? In this class, we will be looking at the practical ways that we can follow after Jesus. Join Pastor Aaron in Classroom 3 as he leads 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)

BOOK OF THE MONTH
January’s Book of the Month is “In the Lord I Take Refuge” which invites readers to experience the Psalms in a new way through heartfelt devotional content and is written by Dane Ortlund. Each reading is short enough to read in five minutes or less and will encourage believers to thoughtfully ponder and pray through each of the 150 Psalms. The Psalms could be called the Bible’s devotional. Each psalm reflects on the greatness of who God is and how he cares for his people. Written with profound emotion, each psalm sheds light on the raw experiences of the human heart, revealing how God’s people should turn to him in times of anguish, pain, remorse, joy, and thanksgiving.
