“Faith in the Cinema”
– We will watch and discuss how the gift of
faith is treated in this feature film. Today, as well as April 6 & 13, we
will study The Robe starring Richard Burton and Jean Simmons, a
story set just after the Resurrection in Palestine and Rome. The
central message of the film is that we must choose whom we will
serve. Brad Class will lead this study in the Chapel.
“Surrendering: Your Life for God’s Pleasure”
– Meet in Kia’s office.
SUNDAYS AT SIX - Pastor Rick will continue the study entitled “From the
Old to the New to You” where we discover Christ in the Old
Testament and in our lives as well. You are encouraged to bring your
own Bible and a pen! Join us tonight.
THE SPECIAL OFFERING today is designated for Reformed Church World
Service. We are participating the campaign of RCWS called “ONE
GREAT HOUR OF SHARING”. Funds collected are used to assist
areas around the globe in a time of crisis or disaster. Remember that
as you support RCSW, you are indirectly supporting the persons from
our church who are going to Mobile, Alabama to build homes with
Habitat for Humanity for Hurricane victims (the week of April 20).
If you have picked up a bank from the table in the narthex you may
bring it forward during the offering and place it in the basket.
