Thursday AM —9 Marks of a Healthy Church. Start date:  January 9, 2020, 9 am. Cost:  $10. Childcare needed for children 5 and under? Please contact Mary Lynne   at 612-209-0578 or The deadline for registration is December 30th. 
 
#2) December Wednesday Night Bible Study
Technology impacts every moment of our waking– and even our sleeping–lives.  Everything from the way we read and understand scripture, consume food, “plan” our health, and our desire for gadgetry is driven by our interaction with tech.  During the month of December, in Room 110 from 6:30-7:30pm Wednesdays during AWANA, we will be discussing the faithful use (and more) of technology in the Christian life.
 
#3) Children’s Christmas Program
Our final K-5 rehearsal is scheduled for Saturday, December 14th from 9am-11am. Please make every effort to have your child present at this rehearsal. Once again, we prefer that only the performers are in the sanctuary during this time. Thank you so much for your cooperation in these matters! The children are doing a great job of learning the music. Please be in prayer for them that they will praise God and worship as they perform and share the special message of our Savior’s birth. On 12/15, the prelude will begin at 5:30 p.m. The Preschool program will begin at 6 p.m. followed by the K-5 program. Cookies will be served immediately following the program. You may contact me with questions or prelude selection titles at 605-595-5660. Thank you, Sue Norberg

9 Marks: Beginning in January, we will have  multiple Sunday School classes going through the book 9 Marks of a Healthy Church. Men’s groups, Women’s Bible Study, and many in the community will also focus on this book to start 2020. Sign-up for the Sunday School classes will start soon. This study will be a great way for us to grow deeper in our understanding of God’s design for the church.
