This Week's Need to Know!
THIS WEEK’S TEXT: “It Is Not Good
that Man Should Be Alone”
Taught by: Pastor Tim Boger
There are no sign ups for this round of Sunday School Classes, just show up!
Grounded in the Faith: This class will dive into what we believe and why we believe it. It is so important for us to know, as believers, because they do have practical implications for our everyday lives. This week’s class will be focused on Overcoming Temptation and will be taught by Pastor Aaron. (Classroom 1)
Real Life Discipleship: As believers, we read in Matthew 28 that we are to make disciples of all nations. This class will help us as we dive into what a disciple is and how to make disciples, ministering to those around us as they walk with the Lord. Join Pastor Robbie as teaches the next section this Sunday. (MPR)
Genesis Q&A: As we go through Genesis 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 Pastor Tim after the service. (Classroom 4)
