This Week’s Need to Know – 02/15/2018

Jonah is considered by some to be one of the most controversial stories in the Bible.  How could a man be swallowed by a great fish and survive?  Skeptics scoff at those who would believe such a tale could be true.  However, our Savior referred back to this story (Matthew 12:39-40) and even connected it to the single most important event to take place – His death, burial, and resurrection.  This short four chapter book contains a powerful message still applicable today.  Join us on Sunday mornings in our worship service as we take a look at the majesty of God’s sovereignty on display through the story of Jonah.

Would you like to be a part of a ministry that helps people form a lasting good impression of Big Woods Bible Church?  Do you like to meet new people?  Then we have an incredible opportunity for you.  We’re looking for 40 people to begin preparing to be a part of our welcome team in our new building.  We need people to hold doors, hand out bulletins, engage in purposeful conversations – all this and much more to welcome the guests that are a part of our services each week.  This team is an incredibly important ministry.  If this sounds like a place you would like to serve, contact Jenn Braun or Lynel Gaunt.  There will also be a special lunch for those interested on Sunday, March 18.  If interested, please click this Eventbrite link to sign up.  Use the password “welcome” to access the event and register your attendance.
