So who is everyone? 1) those who have served on a trip in the past, 2) those who have wanted to serve but couldn’t for any reason, and 3) those who have not served on any trip.

Our Response to God’s Love:
Bible Study Opportunities
Sundays at 10:30am - Ecclesiastes
This study will be especially helpful to those of us who feel like we are just spinning our wheels and finding it difficult to find any significance or joy in life. Learn from the wise teacher who wound up disappointed with a life spent in search of satisfaction through the pursuit of wisdom, fame, power, sensual delight, and the accumulation of wealth. With him discover that "life under the sun," if disconnected from God, is vain, meaningless, and useless. A life centered in God, however, brings temporal and eternal pleasure.
Sunday - 10:15 am- Geography, Customs and History
(Keyl Room) This class explores the world of the Bible along with selected events recorded in Scripture.
Wednesday Women’s Bible Study “Isaiah” - 10:00am
In this study we will learn through Isaiah what it is to be thrilled and touched by God’s holy presence. Both our sin and the atonement for sin that God provides will be revealed to us.
Thursday Bible Study9:00am: Chronological study of the Bible. Pastor Heino will lead us in this study.
Saturday - 8:00 am Men’s Bible Study: “Woman & Man.”
The men of the congregation will begin a new study entitled Dr. Joel Biermann will lead us through a class that examines God’s plan for man and woman in marriage, society and in restoration of God’s creation.
