Taught by:  Pastor Tim Boger

MINISTRY FAIR
Join us after Sunday School this coming Sunday for a Ministry Fair to learn more about the different ministries offered here at Big Woods. Pizza will be provided for lunch, and you will have the opportunity to learn about the various ministries we have and how you can find a place to be involved. Walk around and meet different ministry leaders, hear what they do, and what current ministry needs there are. Some ministries you may or may not be aware of include children's church, nursery, youth ministry, A/V team, missions team, coffee bar ministry, outreach team, men's and women's ministries, meal ministry, worship team, van ministry, benevolence team, and more. We aren't to be simply consumers in the church, but to be actively serving as well. Come out and see where you can use your gifts to build up the body!

ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS
The Bible is clear on what we are to do when we come together, but what about how we are to relate to one another? Sixty times in the Bible, we are instructed on how we are to treat one another. In this new Sunday School class, Living out the One Another Commands, we will look at these commands to see how we can follow them together!  Join us today at 10:45 a.m. for this new class.
