First Hour Resumes

Our first hour programming for adults, youth and kids has started. Featured is a new children’s curriculum from the Gospel Project which echoes our emphasis as the Bible as One Story (and our Core Value of Continuity). This is the place in church life where your kids get a comprehensive picture of Bible stories and theology.  Make it a priority for your kids and try an Adult Bible Fellowship for yourself!

Looking Ahead for the Next Year

Ths Sunday we are launching our Fall Kickoff and emphasis for the next 12 months. Just as a sneak preview, here’s the books of the Bible in which we’ll be soaking up as we look forward as a church. See if you can find the theme that runs through them starting with Ruth.

Gospel of John
Song of Songs
The Letters of John (1, 2, 3 John)

Book Study Opportunity

Starting in September, we’ll be offering both mens and womens book study groups for Scott McNight’s book The Jesus Creed: Loving God, Loving Others. The groups will meet 4 times in the fall in a variety of meeting times. Order the book and watch for more details.

Today in the Word – When Life Becomes Bitter (Ruth 1)

This Sunday we start a 4-week series in the love story of Ruth. But the story starts not with Ruth, but with her mother-in-law Naomi. Naomi’s loss of her husband and 2 sons provokes her toward angry exhaustion. She becomes especially embittered toward God who has dealt her such a harsh hand. Is there hope for us when we feel we’ve been pushed too far?

ABFs @ 9:15 am

During our 9am hour we have two Adult Bible Fellowships that meet. SALT is for younger people (roughly up to 30 or so) who are in college or early in their careers. The other group, Seeking God’s Story, is in the more established stages of life. Either group is open to marrieds, singles, or married who come single. Both focus on informal discussion-oriented Bible study and application to real life.

YAC Kicks off September 17th

Sunday evening youth group begins 9/17 with Volleyball and Pizza. Parents are invited too for this first meeting where we’ll have a follow-up discussion from our summer ministry trip to Denver to see what God might be leading us to do right here in Streetsboro.
