GOD LOVES A CHEERFUL GIVER
From 2 Corinthians 9:6-7, we learn that God wants us to give willingly of our abundance and that we should do so cheerfully. When we do, it helps the church continue our work here and around the world. How to give: place cash or check in the contribution slot on the wall by the office door, mail your check to the church, or use a credit or debit card to give online through CCB.

HOME GROUPS RETURNING
Home Groups are a way to connect with other Christians to learn more about Jesus and more about your fellow church members. We currently have a few small groups beginning but need more volunteers to serve as leaders. Some groups can accommodate small children. Contact Paul Tucker, Kevin Stewart, or Jim Farley if you are interested in becoming part of a home group.

JOHN’S WITNESS TO JESUS
John’s Gospel reflects on different aspects of Jesus’s life than those in Matthew, Mark, and Luke. John says that Jesus did many signs in the presence of the disciples, but those which he has included were written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name (John 20:31). Each week, we will review a different narrative from John focusing on chapters1-11, with the aim of deepening our faith in Jesus.
College and Young Adults Class – The Book of Ephesians, Mike Gulley’ Office

Youth Classes – Like Me. A Journey Through the Commands of Jesus – June 12 through Aug 28
A rabbi invests in those He thinks can be just like Him. Jesus is no different. And He left behind a way to follow Him, to be just like Him, because He believes anyone can. This class looks at several different ways anyone anywhere can follow in the way of Jesus, based on the actual words of Jesus.
