We are combining Family First and our Home Group ministry into a church-family-wide series beginning in September. We will use the inter-generational curriculum, “Lord, Teach Us to Pray” that uses the Lord’s Prayer as a framework for teaching about prayer. We will all be together for the teaching after which parents and children between the ages of 5 and 10 will move into their own discussion and related activity. Pastor Barry will lead the rest of the group in discussion and prayer. We will have childcare for children under the age of 5 if it’s needed. We will meet at Harvest on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays of September, October and November at 6:00pm. If you and your children are attending, please let us know so we can have activity supplies prepared.
We are beginning a new Women’s study, “Women Helping Women” on Wednesday, October 1st. The group will meet on the first Wednesday of each month through March 2015. The goal of the study, authored by Paul David Tripp, is to help women be ambassadors for Christ as sinners living among sinners in a sinful world. We can have childcare available if we know there is need. There is no cost, but we ask you to register so we know how much material to prepare.
Teen Guys’ Night is set for Tuesday, November 18th from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at Ben Day’s. The night will feature pizza, ice cream and games. Each guy attending should bring a beverage to share. There’s a signup sheet on the narthex table or you can call the church office Monday through Thursday to register.
We want to bless the families of the missionaries we help to support with personal gifts this Christmas. At the display on the table in the narthex, you can look over the “wish list” and pick the item(s) you’d like to provide. Please bring your gift in no later than November 30th. It would be great if you would include a card or note of encouragement to the missionary family.
Save the date! We’ll hold our much-anticipated annual Harvest Family Christmas Luncheon here on Sunday, December 7th after the service. We’ll start with a covered dish luncheon and follow that with a bunch of fun games and laughter. We hope you see you here!
