Christian Writing Ministry
Facilitated by author Judith Rolfs
Wednesdays, 3:30–5:00 p.m., Sept. 11 & 25, Oct. 9 & 23, and Nov. 13
in the conference room (behind the gym)
Do you feel a call upon your life to minister to others through writing, perhaps by a legacy of letters to your family? Or have you been thinking about starting your own spiritual blog? Are you a poet and you know it? Or perhaps you want to write articles or editorials to influence our culture in a godly way.
Come to this new writers’ ministry “to promote the spread of moral values and Christian truth” through the written word. Interested adults will find this to be a creative outlet in which each writer benefits the other.
All men and women are welcome, so bring your notepads and pens and let’s begin! This ministry is open to all Christian writers from area churches, so invite your friends!
A STUDY FOR MEN AND WOMEN
What Does It Mean That I’m a New Creation?
Starting Out With a New Identity
Led by Terry Carro & Pastor Chuck Cervenka
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17
Pastor Chuck based the title of his book on this verse. The “new creation” is a new identity that each person can know in their own life. The Bible teaches that you can be made new.
God makes it possible for you to be given a new life in Jesus. When you are given new life things change. You begin to think like a new person. You begin to act like a new person. You begin to dream like a new person. You begin to love like a new person.
But what exactly is this new life? What first steps do you need to know as you start out with this new identity? There is much to learn, and this book is designed to help with the very first steps you will need to take. Learn these first steps well and soon you will be running the race that God has for you!
A STUDY FOR WOMEN
The Road to Rejoice!
The Journey to Trust in a Sovereign God
Led by Becky Eppley
6:15–7:45 p.m. (also offered Tuesdays at 9 a.m., beginning September 9)
You have been uniquely designed by God and He has intentionally placed you here.
So, where are you? Do you find yourself in trouble, trial, or suffering and struggling with fears and doubts like: God if you love me why is this happening? Will it get better? When will this end? God, where are you?
How can you be honest with God about your emotions?
Can brokenness be redeemed for His glory?
Can the fact that a sovereign God loves you unconditionally cause you to arrive at a place of trusting Him no matter what the circumstances? Does His presence provide peace and joy?
We would love for you to join us as we explore not only these questions but also the answers that are found in God’s Word.
A STUDY FOR MEN
The Perfect Man
Led by Pastor Tim Yorgey
Are you the perfect man? If you answered “no’” then this study is for you! Men, we live in a world that is struggling to understand masculinity. Yet, God’s word gives the answer. This fall, we will be studying the way Jesus, the perfect God man, grew in wisdom, stature, favor with God, and favor with man. Join us as we explore practical ways to grow into the men God has designed us to be.
AN OPPORTUNITY FOR SINGERS
Led by Pastor Gabe Doerksen
Worship choir returns to its regular weekly Wednesday night rehearsals this fall. If you love to worship the Lord through singing, you are welcome to join worship choir. Throughout the year, the choir enjoys leading the congregation in singing during worship services as well as presenting special programs for key seasons, such as Christmas, Easter, and Independence Day.
