Our group has started a study on the Book of Romans for the next 2 months. We are very excited to be back in the bible after a short break of cleaning up the clothes closet! Please come by and join us on Mondays at 6:30pm in the Carroll Building (red brick building to the right of the sanctuary) as we wrestle with what Paul wrote to the Romans (and to us!).
1. Taylor’s Grandparents going through some health issues, all at the same time.
2. Sally’s Aunt’s Mother also going through some health issues.
3. Sally’s friend from high school who is now a youth pastor had a student commit suicide recently. Prayers for that family and church family as they work through this incredibly challenging time.
4. Jay’s Grandparents, especially his grandmother.
5. Zach’s Father and his recent health issues and well as his Mother in her role as a caretaker.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
After a slow start to the new year and an exciting Clemson win (no hard feelings all you elephants), we are back to our regularly scheduled programming on Monday nights.
For the first two weeks ( Jan. 16 and 23) we will be doing some New Year, New You brainstorming. Except it’s New Year, New/Better Meeting Society/Church. Come ready to discuss who we want be, what we want to do, and who we want to help in 2017 and ready to do some long range planning. New comers are always welcome – fresh perspective and ideas are always so helpful!
“By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people puck grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.”
So what kinda fruit do we want to give? My vote is blackberries or peaches – especially if we can give them in cobbler form 🙂
