This Week's Need to Know!

THIS WEEK’S TEXT: “This One Shall Bring Us Relief”
Taught by:  Daniel Nauta

Grounded in the Faith: Due to Pastor Aaron being out of town, we invite those that attend this class to the Genesis Q&A.  
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 Daniel after the service.  (MPR)

The young adults and families are invited out to the Mays’ home (416 E Bald Eagle Street, 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!

At Big Woods, we have a ministry called Take a Meal. This ministry serves families who need an extra hand, those who have just had a baby, families that have lost a loved one, individuals who have had surgery etc. If you are interested in making meals and delivering them to families who are in need, a link is sent out via our community email list. On that link, it has how many people the meal would need to feed, any allergies, contact information and an address. If you have any questions or want to be involved, please contact the church office!

This summer, we will be hosting a college Bible study for students returning from college and others in the area. The Bible study will be focusing on 1 Peter and will be 8:00pm Tuesday nights at the Mays'. We are so excited for this opportunity to build a foundation for community for college students returning to the area for the summers!

Join us on Wednesday, May 31st 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 on Thursday, June 1st 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, June 10th, 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!

Starting the week of June 12th, Women’s Ministry will be having a summer bible study. They will be examining the modern lies that are disguised as Truths in today’s culture as they read through Alisa Childer’s book “Live Your Truth and Other Lies: Exposing Popular Deceptions that Make Us Anxious, Exhausted, and Self Centered.” To learn more about the study, click here! The class will run every Monday evening from 6:30 – 8:00pm and Tuesday morning from 10:30am – 12:00pm (childcare provided) To sign up for the study, click here!

As expressed in the findings of our recent Listening Session, we want to provide more opportunities to fellowship together. This summer will be hosting a Third Sunday Summer Gathering right here at Big Woods. Just as the name suggests, the third Sunday of June, July, and August, after the service, we will be having a BBQ and potluck style gathering out on the lawn with food, outdoor games, and fellowship! Our first gathering will be on June 18th and more details about that gathering will be coming soon.

"Can We Trust the Gospels" by Peter J. Williams is the May book of the month! This book looks at multiple different sources trying to prove that the events and information in the Gospels is trustworthy and that they actually did happen. This book is a great tool for you to be able to fully trust God’s Word and it could be a good tool to help you proclaim the Gospel and defend it to those that you come in contact with.
