HOMECOMING IS HERE!
We look forward to seeing you Sunday morning for Building the Kingdom, our Homecoming class and worship service, followed by our fellowship meal. It will be a great day as we celebrate more than 130 years of God’s work through the people of the church here at Withamsville. Coming for class? Children first grade and above will be in the auditorium with the youth and adults. Children in nursery, 2 & 3-year-olds, and 4-year-olds through kindergarten will be in their usual rooms for 9 a.m. classes. Children’s Bible Hour will be held for the 2-year-olds-k, but children grades 1-12 should remain in the auditorium through service.

Significant Others – Understanding Our Non-Christian Neighbors
Our culture is becoming more pluralistic every year, including some of our neighbors. This class covers the religious beliefs of non-Christians around us. Each week will be spent on another world religion, giving us some basic understanding and highlighting points of contact and points of contrast between our Christian faith and these other religions. Join us as we further equip ourselves to “Serve our Neighbors as Missionaries.” This DVD-based class is taught by Dr. Monte Cox, Dean of the College of Bible and Ministry at Harding University and Preaching Minister for the Downtown Church of Christ in Searcy, Arkansas. See the topic schedule here.

We’ll meet at 6 p.m. for our usual Hangout time. At 7, we will begin our new class series Acts: Turning the World Upside Down, led by Christian Thompson and held in the Youth House.
