What is Happening This Week

1/2 – 1/8/17


Dear Church,


Happy 2017!

Rev. Bill Mauldin is offering a new opportunity for adults to learn more about God, the Bible, the Christian faith, themselves, and others in our community. He will lead the new Disciple I Fast Track, but will slow it down a bit. Instead of meeting every week, they will meet once a month for 24 months. That is 12 sessions (months) on the Old Testament and 12 sessions (months) on the New Testament. Bill will begin the Old Testament study this Sunday, January 8 from 4 – 5:30 pm in the youth room (Education Building 2nd floor). The book for the Old Testament is $15. If you have questions, please contact Rev. Bill Mauldin [email protected] by Sunday!

I have received requests to lead a Disciple II study to begin soon. If you are interested, please contact me at [email protected] and let me know when would be the best time for you to meet.


Pastor Carol
