This Week's Need to Know!

THIS WEEK’S TEXT: “Sacrificial Giving: Extravagant Worship or Excessive Waste” John 12:1-11
Taught by:  Guest Speaker: Dr. David Gough

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 Pastor Aaron 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 our guest speaker, Dr. David Gough, after the service. (MPR)

The young adults and families are invited out to the Nauta’s home (333 S. Fairview Street, Lock Haven) after church this week for a time of fellowship. Lunch is not provided this week. If you have any questions, please contact the office!

"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!
