This Week’s Need to Know – 09/27/2018

Sunday starts our study on the book of Philippians.  Many are taught to pursue their dreams, reach their goals, focus entirely on themselves and they will have joy. Sadly, that is the opposite of what is true. Real joy actually comes when you focus on God first, others second and yourself last. But how do we do that? Join us each Sunday, this fall, as we study the book of Philippians and learn about Real Joy for Real Life.    

Sunday morning’s message will be from Philippians 1:1,2.  Begin now to read through the book of Philippians to be prepared for our journey through this book this fall.

Sunday marks an important milestone in the history of Big Woods.  We will all join together for a single service starting at 9:00 AM.  There will be no Sunday school for the next two weeks.  No longer will you be a “first service attender” or a “second service attender.”  So we can get to know everyone again, we’re asking that everyone pick up a name tag for the next few weeks and wear it in the services.  Our greeters will make those available to you when you enter the building.  As a reminder, our deacons will be directing everyone to a parking spot.  Please follow their directions to help everyone get parked quickly and safely.  If you need to park close because you have little children or if you need a handicap spot, let them know and they will direct you to that designated parking area.

There will be a nursery for babies up to age 3 and a Junior Church for kids up to age 7 starting this Sunday.  They are in temporary rooms since our children’s wing is still under construction but they will be available for Sunday services.

Tonight starts the True Woman Live Stream Event at the old building located at 120 Logan Ave. in Castanea.  All women are invited to be a part of this time to listen and be encouraged by powerful teaching based on the themes of Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth’s best-selling book, Lies Women Believe: And the Truth That Sets Them Free.

The livestream is free to attend, please just register using the form below. Meals will be provided with a suggested donation of $5/meal into an offering basket to help us cover costs of food. No payment is required!
