This Week's Need to Know!

THIS WEEK’S TEXT: “Praying: A Gift We Get to Enjoy Together” Matthew 6:9-13, Acts 4:31 and 2 Corinthians 1:8-11
Taught by: Pastor Tim Boger

Jesus Continued: This theologically based class will be based off the book “Jesus Continued” by JD Greear and will focus on pneumatology which is the study of the Holy Spirit. Join Daniel Nauta this week as he leads the class in Classroom 1.
Priorities: This class will focus on our priorities, looking at why we do what we do and how we manage/schedule our days. Pastor Robbie will be leading this class in Classroom 4 as he aims to teach the importance of having a biblical approach to our time.
Church 101 Q&A: As we go through the Church 101 series 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)

Join us on Wednesday, June 28th 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.

Our next Garage Night will be, Thursday, July 6th at 6:00 p.m., where 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.

The next Ladies’ Prayer Gathering will be Saturday, July 8th, 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!

"Jesus Continued" by J.D. Greear is the June book of the month! This book takes deeper look at the ministry of the Holy Spirit, what the Holy Spirit does in the life of a Christian. J.D. Greear has a great subtitle to his book which is “Why the Spirit Inside You is Better Than Jesus Beside You.” He bases this subtitle in the passage from Scripture when Jesus is speaking to his disciples in John 16. We welcome you to grab this book from our bookshelf as well as join Pastor Aaron in his Sunday School class about this book. To hear Pastor Aaron share more about this book, click here!

A need has been expressed by two Lock Haven long term care facilities for weekly bingo prizes because many of their residents look forward to these games and prizes. We have a container in the lobby to collect items that are in NEW CONDITION. To see a list of these items, click here!

We are so thankful for the individuals who were able to participate in our gathering this past Sunday! Thank you to the deacons and others who set up the tables and chairs, tear down after and grill. Thank you to the ladies who helped clean up and thank you to Helen for gathering all the supplies. Thank you to the Simms and the Rosypals for organizing the games and thank you to Holly Beaver for her work behind the scenes to help organize the event. Also, a reminder, we have two more gatherings scheduled for the summer! So, mark your calendars for July 16th for another special time of fellowship, food and an outdoor baptism!
