COMMUNITY EVENTS        

RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE: The Red Cross is in urgent need of blood, and is holding a Blood Drive here in the Great Room Friday, December 15th   from 12:00-5:00 p.m.  You can register online at http://www.redcrossblood.org.

Teen Challenge is really excited about the amazing things that are going on at Teen Challenge.  On the

3rd of December they are rolling out a great new and simple promotion that everyone can get behind.  It’s called One person, One dollar, One day.  It’s Teen Challenge Mission Day program wide.  A lot of department stores ask customers if they would like to donate one dollar to certain charities while they make their purchase, it is the same idea for us.  They however are not limiting themselves to just department stores but are asking the church relationships they value.  If one person gave one dollar on that day in the offering plate towards Teen Challenge the increase could be astronomical.   

Shopping this Holiday Season, check out Amazon gives. Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service. Support your charitable organization by starting your shopping at smile.amazon.com. Questions? Learn more about AmazonSmile,  There are several charities such as Teen Challenge and Granite Pathways as well as others who are registered that we could donate to just by doing what we normally would be doing anyway..

NEW ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS: Please join us on Sunday’s at 9:00am for “The Reason for God.” People have hard questions about faith- are you prepared to answer? You will be challenged to discuss and wrestle with your friends’ and neighbors’ hardest questions, and to engage those questions in ways that will spark an honest, enriching, and humbling dialogue. Capture a live and unscripted conversation as six panelists discussing their objections to Christianity. This study will help you understand individuals objections to the Christian faith and to learn about both sides of the issues. Sessions include: Isn’t the Bible a Myth?; How Can You Say There Is Only One Way to God?; What Gives You the Right to Tell Me How to Live My Life; Why Does God Allow Suffering?; Why Is the Church Responsible for So Much Injustice?; How Can God Be Full of Love and Wrath at the Same Time?. Discussion will be led by Pastor Kevin.
