Small groups are a means to an end, not an end in and of themselves. Small groups exist as a way for people to engage in biblical community that helps them become more like Jesus in every area of their lives. Acts 2:42-47 gives us a great picture of the early church and the components of biblical community, which encompassed both the "temple courts" and "house to house." These believers engaged in life together through teaching, fellowship, communion, prayer, miracles, radical generosity, and corporate worship. They spent time together eating, learning, celebrating, proclaiming the Good News, and supporting each other.
Wednesday Evening Bible Study -Screwtape Letters
Our Wednesday night ladies Bible study will be reading the Screwtape Letters this fall. Screwtape is an experienced demon trying to mentor a nephew through the tempting of his assigned human "patient." These "lettere" were originally a weekly series of newpaper columns and are a very unique look at our struggles in life.
We meet every Wednesday evening except the first Wenesday of the month from 6:30 - 8:00. Questions? Contact Deb Jenkins.
THURSDAY NIGHT SMALL GROUP
“To Jesus, prayer was central and essential. He prayed not because He had to or only to give a good example but because He needed it urgently. Sensing what prayer meant to Him and did for Him, one of the disciples longed for that experience and knew that the others felt the same way. All of this is behind the plea, ‘Lord, teach us to pray.’” [From the study introduction]
Journey into Prayer is a 6-8 week study about the lifetime journey of prayer whose goal is to help each of us develop a personal and intimate relationship with God.
All women, 16 years and over, are invited to join us on Thursday evenings in the church Conference Room (6:30 – 8:00 p.m.) as we walk together through this life-changing study together. In addition to building a stronger relationship with God, we will be building strong relationships with each other. It’s never too late to connect!

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
Isaiah 43:18-19 (NIV)
At any given moment in our lives each of us has…
Yet often times the more significant an action feels, the easier it is to put off. We get distracted from the big decisions by the immediate needs of the day. What all of us seem to have in common is that we need a nudge, a nudge to help us get out of our ruts and routines so that we can begin risking bravely.
Meets 1st Wednesday each month, Oct-Apr 6:30-8:00 p.m.

The next MOPS meeting will be Thursday, Oct. 9, from 6:30-8:30. The topic will be “Courage to Face Your Mom Fears.” All mothers of preschoolers are welcome. First visit is free, and child care is provided at no charge!
At MOPS, we believe that you were meant to live deeply and so we have created this year’s theme to inspire you to choose the extraordinary. Sometimes, good people wait patiently for God to intervene when what he is wanting is for us to act bravely and do something. Being a follower of Jesus calls for courage.
Come join with other mothers of preschoolers (0-kindergarten) who can relate and support you! Our first MOPS meeting of the school year is Thursday, September 11, at 6:30 pm in the Youth Room located in the lower level of the church. Cost of the meeting is $5. Your first meeting is FREE! Childcare will be provided at no cost. We would love to have you join us and bring a friend!
LWML collects stamps for missions with the collectable stamps. Please save your stamps from the envelopes you receive by cutting 1/4" around the stamps and placing them in the container in the communication center. There is also a sheet that explains more about the stamps near the container. This helps us to help others, including the LWML scholarships that several of our members received.
Please save and collect your mites (your change) and put it in the MITE box located on the table in the communication center. This money, as well as the stamps, is turned in to the District and National LWML's to help pay for the mission grants that are currently under way. We thank you for your contributions.
