TREASURE STUDY
The Treasure study continues in all of the adult Sunday school classes, as well as Thursday evening’s Underground Community Gatherings.
 
Even if you are not normally part of one of these groups, you are welcome to join the conversation.  Foundations, Pathfinders and Spectrum meet at 9am on Sunday, Dashers at 10:30am on Sunday, and the Underground at 7:00pm Thursday. 
 
The topic this week (9/14 and 9/17) is “The Problem with Two Masters”.  9/21 and 9/24 “Giving Your Treasure Back to God”.  9/28 and 10/1 “Don’t Worry ‘Bout a Thing”.  Come and contemplate what God is saying to you about your treasure.
“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21

 


PRESCHOOL AND CDO SAFTEY  –  
For the safety of our preschool and CDO children, all doors to both buildings will be locked during the day.  If you regularly need to get into the building, contact Linda or Debbie in the church office for a code to the west door.  If you don’t have a code, there is a doorbell at the east door to ring and someone will let you in.  Thanks for your understanding and help in keeping our children safe.
