This Week's Need to Know!
THIS WEEK’S TEXT: “My Punishment
is Greater than I Can Bear”
Taught by: Pastor Tim Boger
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 focus on the Great Value of Prayer and will be taught by Pastor Aaron. (Classroom 4)
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. (Classroom 1)
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. (MPR)
SUNDAY LUNCHES FOR YOUNG
The young adults and families are invited out to the Zembower’s home (225 Susquehanna Ave, Lock Haven) after church this week for a time of fellowship. Lunch is not provided this week. If you have any questions, contact the church office!
Secret Church is an international simulcast done every year by David Platt and his organization, Radical. Navigate and New Life students have been involved for many years and would love for you to join in on the fun! Come out tomorrow, Friday, April 21 from approximately 7:00 p.m. until midnight. This year’s series will go through the entire book of Jonah! Jonah is one of the best-known books of the Bible. But beyond the fascinating story of a fish swallowing a man, you will find the challenging account of God’s most unwilling prophet and how, often, we, like Jonah, choose our own comfort over God’s mission. But Jesus shows us a better way. Together we will learn how the gospel drives us to make disciples, not just of people who look and think like us—but of all nations, even those we would consider our enemies. There is no cost to participate! For those planning to attend, please enter the church by the front or back doors and head down to the youth center.
We are having another workday! On April 29th from 8am – 12pm, Men’s Ministry will be cooking up breakfast and hosting another productive morning of service at the church. As we seek to steward our church property, we are going to apply a layer of topsoil on a few spots around the property. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. Please sign up here!
Join us on Wednesday, May 3rd at 6:30 p.m. for our next Prayer Gathering. Our prayer gatherings will be every other Wednesday and will be one of the ways we can bear one another’s burdens as we seek to faithfully follow Jesus together. There will be a potluck before that starts at 5:30pm.
MEN’S GARAGE MINISTRY
On Thursday, May 4th at 6:00 p.m., all men will be invited to meet at the garage of Dave Frankenberger (1930 Long Run Road, Mill Hall). Men, grab a chair and come prepared to talk shop and tackle life’s challenges, while building on the strengths of your brothers in Christ.
Men mark your calendars! Men’s Ministry is hosting a campfire here at the church on Saturday May 6th at 6:00pm. More information to come!
Next month, NewLife will be hosting Midnight Pancakes during finals week at LHU. Many of you have helped in the past and know that this is a great way to connect with students and minister to them as they finish up the school year. This semester, we will be at the Student Rec Center on campus Tuesday, May 9th to serve the students pancakes from 11pm-1am. We need both ingredients and supplies to make the event happen, as well as volunteers to cook pancakes, serve pancakes, and most importantly, talk to college students! If you would be willing to help out by either donating materials or volunteering on May 9th, please fill out the form here!
ADVENTURES IN MOTHERHOOD
AIM will be meeting the second Thursday of every month from 10:30am – 12:00pm at the church. Childcare and refreshments will be provided. The last day this Spring will be May 11th. To volunteer for childcare, please email Jillian Best at firstname.lastname@example.org
WOMEN’S PRAYER MEETING
The next Ladies’ Prayer Gathering will be Saturday, May 13th, from 9:00 to 10:00 am. Come and be blessed by yet another personal story of a life saved by faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ. Saturday prayer is an intimate time of blessing and joy…and even includes coffee and sweets! MEN’S SOFTBALL In mid-May, Pastor Robbie is aiming to hold softball practices for this summer’s softball league. Starting in June, games will be played on Sunday afternoons, and we will have practices once a week! Please let Pastor Robbie know if you are interested in playing or have any questions.
