This Week’s Need to Know – 08/16/2018

Home groups are starting up in the very near future.  We have three different options for you this year.  The first is a study through the book of Ecclesiastes focused on how life is meaningless without God.  The second selection is a topical study that will focus on the importance of and application of Christian disciplines.  The last option will be a sermon-based study where you and your group will dive deeper into each week’s sermon focusing on personal application.  Click the link below to sign up for your preferred course of study today!

BACK TO SCHOOL SCHOOL PRAYER NIGHT
This Monday evening, Big Woods will host a Back to School Prayer Night starting at 7PM.  Come out and join us as we ask God to work in the lives of our teachers, administration, school employees as well as parents and students.  Childcare for nursery/preschool aged children will be available.

CHILDCARE
As we grow as a body, we want to grow in our ability to minister to our community.  That means much of our ministry work must move outside the morning worship hours of our Sunday service.  Groups that meet during the week – such as our Recovery Ministry, Women’s Bible Study, home groups, and others – need help with childcare.  Typically this involves about an hour or two of time.  Having a place for kids maximizes our ability to minister to those that need these discipleship ministries.  If you can help, please contact the church office or Pastor Josh at joshuah@bigwoods.org.

BACK TO SCHOOL MEANS BACK TO NAVIGATE
School starts next Wednesday and that means it’s time for our weekly Navigate Youth Ministry meetings to begin again.  Sunday, August 19, the high school gathering will begin again at 6:30 PM.  On Wednesday, August 22, the middle school group will have their first meeting and it will be at 6:30 PM as well.  Contact Pastor Stuart at stuartr@bigwoods.org if you have any questions.
