Join us for “Better – A Study of Hebrews” by Jen Wilkin
April 15 – June 17
10am – 11:30ish via zoom
In this verse-by-verse study of the Book of Hebrews, Jen explores how God “provided something better for us” in the person of Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:40). Through stories of Old Testament heroes and practices, the author of Hebrews demonstrates how the new covenant is superior to the old and how Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of every promise. Explore familiar verses in context of the entire Bible, learning how to place your hope and faith in Christ alone.
There is video content about 30-40 minutes that will be shown before discussion. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so I have a good idea how many will be joining!

Beginning Sunday May 3, my Sunday evening small group will begin a new section.
Our meetings start at 5PM and last between 1 and 1½ hour.
You should have a bible available to you for these meetings.
We’ll be covering Biblical “wisdom” literature – the books of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Job.
These three books have a unique relationship to each other and to the rest of Biblical literature.
Objective will be to learn the wisdom in wisdom literature.
We’ll spend time on overviews and looking at internal ties between books.
We’ll try to get into the author’s head to see what each book is trying to tell us.
And, of course to see the overarching theme of the Bible reflected in these books.
Plan is to cover an overview on 5/3 then cover Proverbs, Ecclesiastes then Job, in that order, expect about 2 weeks for each.
Timing of our meetings can slip based on the involvement and interaction of the participants. There is no firm ending date.
Members of the group choose the next topic.
Until we can again meet in person, our meetings are on ZOOM at: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/665389567
2020 Deacon’s Easter Project
As in past years, the Deacons are preparing to help 25 families in need to have a nice Easter. We are asking our members to provide non-perishable grocery items or to donate money for a VG’s gift certificate for these families. The Deacons will provide a list of suggested grocery items but you may add anything you wish. Grocery bags with the number of adults, teens, and children in each of the families and a sign-up sheet for VG’s gift certificates will be available in Fellowship Hall on March 15, March 22 and March 29, 2020 following each service.
The Deacons thank you in advance for your generosity.
Christmas In Action (CIA) uses volunteer labor along with donated money and materials to perform free home repairs for low income or handicapped senior citizens, repairs that they cannot do or afford to have done. It is a great way for our church to reach out to the community and to serve God’s family! Our congregation has been working with CIA for the past 11 years by doing a wide variety of maintenance tasks, e.g., re-doing a bathroom, replacing lower kitchen cabinets and flooring, repairing a living room floor, paneling room walls, repairing a deck, painting, cleaning, landscaping, etc. Each year CIA finds qualified homes (application available in the church office to repair in Fenton, Fenton Township, Linden and Argentine. Our congregation usually picks one of them to work on together so that we can also enjoy each other’s company. If you would like to join our group this year, please sign up in Fellowship Hall. Breakfast and lunch are provided. Come for whatever time you can on Saturday, April 25; coffee and donuts are available at 8:00am. To all who sign up, we will be sending specific details about our chosen house location and tasks. If you have any questions, please contact Bill Black: 810-750-4189 or email@example.com.

Gospel Project Sunday school
Nursery through kindergarten classes offered during 9am worship.
Nursery through 5th grade classes offered during 11am worship.
Why this curriculum? Because every lesson points to Jesus, and children are learning stories from the entire Bible – even the tough ones – in age appropriate ways. This allows children to very simply experience the full breadth of the Gospel message. As they grow into youth group, these lessons will be familiar, allowing them to further unpack and understand the challenges that all of humanity faces even today. Biblical relevancy and faith formation starts early and is a great gift!
Please see Tina Ritchie with any questions, or if you would like to be added to the weekly email lessons and family talking points.
