CHILDREN'S MINISTRY: "PROJECT 'GO MAKE DISCIPLES!'"
Our children continue their study of the Gospel of Matthew under the theme: "PROJECT 'GO MAKE DISCIPLES.'" They are learning the Gospel of Matthew so they can take its life-giving message to the Planet Xenon in a few weeks. Each week an official from the planet Xenon sends messages to our kids with questions about the meaning of the stories of Matthew's Gospel. And our kids translate the question and then study Matthew in order to answer their alien friends. By learning what it means for the aliens, they learn what it means for their own faith. Classes will meet from 11:20-12:30 (location TBA).
OPPORTUNITIES FOR ADULTS
DISCIPLESHIP IN THE SCHOOL OF MATTHEW. On Wednesday evenings beginning January 4 adults will have an opportunity to engage important passages of Matthew's Gospel as a means to renew discipleship according to Matthew's vision. Classes will meet on Wed. evenings, 7:00-8:30 in Calvin Lounge.
