Tools For Sharing Christ WorkshopTools for Sharing
Saturday, April 18, 9 am - noon

Would you like to learn new ways to share Christ with people you don’t know or only know casually?  You are cordially invited to attend an informal workshop on how to use simple tools and games to open up conversations about Jesus.  This three hour, hands-on workshop will equip you to share your faith with friends, co-workers and strangers.

The leaders will demonstrate materials and games which are easy to use, fun to play and designed to open up conversations about spiritual matters.  The lessons and concepts learned in this workshop will equip you and your family to talk about Jesus in the relaxed setting of your everyday lives while helping non-believers experience Jesus. Stop by the info booth beginning March 22 to sign up.

Ladies Tea!

Prayer Corner

This week meditate on  . . . Ephesians 2:4-7

“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.  And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.”  (NIV)
