Equipping Classes - Room to Join
We are excited to announce that sign-ups for the equipping classes are now available. This fall we have a variety of new and some recurring classes for everyone to participate in. Date and times vary and we want to encourage you to take a look at each one of these and sign-up for one of them.
Marriage: The How-to-Guide (Started September 12th)
This class will be devoted to learning and applying Christ's perfect design for marriage. The class will be theological and yet extremely practical. This class is encouraged for anyone who is married, engaged, or desires to be married in the future.
Firm Foundation: A Study in the Book of Romans (Starting October 3rd)
This class is a unique Bible study in the Book of Romans that will help the student form and solidify a spiritual foundation in the Word of God.
Women in the Church (Starting September 27th)
What exactly does Christ say a woman can and cannot do in the Church? Is your answer based on "Christian culture," or Christ? In a world that is growing increasingly confused about the uniqueness of gender, may the church's understanding be clear. This class is a Bible study of select texts that reveal God's design for women in the church.
Homiletics: How to Preach/Teach (Started September 12th)
If you're interested in learning more about how to prepare a message/lesson/etc, you are welcome to attend. The class will consist of lectures then you will have a few weeks to prepare a message for an assigned text and then present the message in a lab setting. More details will follow.
How Our Local Church Goes Global (Started September 12th)
As we think of the return of Christ, we should be about the spread of the gospel. Join us in learning about how we go from local outreach to reaching the nations. Christ is calling everyone everywhere to repent and we want to participate in that commission in a way that honors our Savior.
Building Renovation Update & Needs
- We have been making great progress and we can almost move our staff into the building.
- This week we were preparing the worship center for paint that will be starting soon. Some of you came out to help us with the lighting fixtures, tapping, electrical, and laying down particleboard.
- Members who are experienced in construction and can volunteer their time to help us offset our cost for outside contractors.
- Members who are willing to help with simple things like cleaning and other non-skilled work
- Check the Telegram Group for the renovation needs. We have skilled and non-skilled tasks that are being updated daily. Join Telegram Group.
- We want to hire more men like Dima Herman who are able to do general construction. If you want to get hired or know someone who can work on this project, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Continue to give since the project budget increased due to expansions upon the original remodel scope and a few items that we could not foresee before our purchase. Give Now.

Did you know that one of the easiest and most passive ways you can help advance the Gospel is by interacting with our Church's social media presence (and other ministries). Even a simple "like" will help put our posts in the view of your non-believing friends. Comments are better on Facebook, since they equate the comments with popularity.
