Prayer for Backyard Bible Clubs – Churchwide Outreach
This is our churchwide outreach for the summertime—our goals are to plant gospel seeds in the hearts of kids and to provide another opportunity to build relationships with our neighbors who do not yet know Jesus. Let’s start praying now as a church for this outreach! Be on the lookout for the sign-up table starting May 21 to volunteer your home or yard to host a club and see more details on the City for other ways to get involved.

Fear and Rebellion
Tim Murphy (one of our elders) walked us through Numbers 13:25-14:10, drawing out four common causes for our fears and matching them to four antidotes from God. In the face of our fear, He gives us Himself and His promises, He provides for us, and He protects us. Listen to “Fear or Rebellion.
