bible Buddies begins September 6, 2023

It's hard to believe that summer break is coming to an end and that the start of a new school year is just days away. We are praying for each student, that God grant them a blessed and successful learning journey.

To help that become a reality, we believe that including God and learning the precepts of His Word is vital. To that end, we are excited to offer another season of Bible Buddies for the 2023-24 school year. Our group teachers and volunteers are busily making preparations to share weekly with your children.

To get the new season rolling we invite you to join us for a Fall Kick-Off event taking place on Wednesday, September 6, from 6:30 - 7:30pm. We will be gathering on the church lawn on the north side of the building for a free hamburger/hotdog cookout. The only thing you need to bring are lawn chairs to sit in.

In addition to the meal, there will be a time for playing yard games, bouncing in an inflatable bounce house, and a chance to win some prizes! You won't want to miss it!!

A registration form for this new season is attached to this email. You may print it out at home, complete each section, and bring it with you to the Kick-Off. Registration forms will also be available to complete at the event.

It's going to be a fantastic year and we look forward to seeing you soon!

New GriefShare Program to Be Offered by First Church of Christ

This program features biblical, Christ-centered teaching that focuses on grief topics associated with the death of a loved one. The DVD seminar features nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories of people, followed by a small group discussion about what was viewed. Past participants have related how helpful the information and follow-up discussions were to them.
Many grieving people find they are only beginning the work of healing when friends or family have returned to their daily life routines. Too often people, including Christians, tend to stuff their grief instead of allowing it to do the God-given work for which it is intended. Don’t allow fear of what others may think to keep you from what could help you. Confidentiality is very much a part of this program.

Your bereavement experience may be recent or not so recent. You will find encouragement, comfort and help in grieving the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, other family member, or friend. No matter what the cause of your loved one’s death, this is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling. You will learn how to recognize the symptoms of being stuck in grief and that you do not need to live in bondage to certain emotions. You will learn valuable information about facing your new normal in life and renewing your hope for the future.
GriefShare will be held Monday evenings from 6:30 - 8:00pm beginning September 11 and running for 13 weeks. The weekly seminars will meet in the Chapel of First Church of Christ.

Cost: $20 (includes workbook)
