NightLight Bible Study
September 13th - December 13th, 2018
Pick one or all three of our studies this fall as we spend our evenings taking a look at a series of four-week studies called Everyday Matters Bible Studies for Women. We will examine what scripture say about forgiveness (Sept 20, 27 & Oct 4, 11), then reconciliation (Oct 18, 25 & Nov 1, 8), and finally outreach (Nov 15, 29 & Dec 6, 13). Our opening evening will be a potluck in the Café in the Ministry Center on September 13 at 6:30 p.m. The studies will then run weekly from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday evenings. We hope you can join us for all three!
SonLight Bible Study
September 18th - December 11th, 2018
Our Tuesday morning study will be examining four of the minor prophets. In the autumn we will cover the books of Jonah and Amos; in the spring we will cover Joel and Hosea. We have a team of 7 teachers from our church who will be sharing with you this year. If you need childcare, please register your children as directed. The study begins in Heritage Hall in our Ministry Center at 9:15 a.m. and we close at 11:30 a.m. We look forward to having you join us for this year’s study.
Men's Fall Retreat 2018 - Crown up, Knees Down: Praying Like a King!
September 21st - September 23rd, 2018
Men: Plan now to attend the Men’s Fall Retreat Friday evening through Sunday noon, September 21-23, 2018 at the Alton Bay Christian Conference Center in New Hampshire.
ABOUT THE RETREAT...
Last year, we joyfully discovered that we are God's image bearers who rule the world under God's direction. This year we will build on the idea of living crown up, not crown down, by exploring: Crown up, Knees Down: Praying Like a King! Our knees may be artificial or weak but our prayers are to be real and powerful because God works through his rulers. Theologian John Goldingay writes: "Human beings were created in order to facilitate the creation's coming to completion as the world God intended" (Biblical Theology). Time to pray, gentlemen!
WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN US...
On this retreat, you will experience great teaching, small group discussion that is honest and open, worship that is simple yet God-exalting, and fellowship with other brothers who are looking for the same thing you are—a closer relationship with Jesus Christ. There will also be an opportunity to go hiking, hanging out talking with other guys, or just relaxing with a good book for a couple of hours. So, make the time to join us for the time of your life!
ABOUT OUR SPEAKER...
Dan Szatkowski is back for a second year as our retreat speaker. He is Pastor of the Cambridgeport Baptist Church. Since 2000, Dan has sought to make this a church known as a community of believers who are seeking to grow as followers of Jesus, learning to love God and their neighbors by the power of the Holy Spirit, and helping others do the same. Dan and his wife Kathy have eight children and three grandchildren. They have lived in the Mission Hill neighborhood of Boston since 1986.
