Monday, December 10th – Ladies Craft Night – 6:30 - 9:00 pm. Meets every other week.
Wednesday, December 12th – Bible Study and Prayer Time – 6:30 pm – “Of utmost importance to prayer is God’s sovereignty. God is supremely in charge of everything that happens in His universe. Nothing takes Him by surprise and nothing happens without the knowledge of God, even though we may not always understand. In hearing and responding to our prayers, then, we are assured that God will do so on the basis of His many attributes. His personal nature, love, power, knowledge, wisdom, holiness, immanence, and sovereignty all play a role in how we relate to God in prayer and how He relates to us.” --- Robert Velarde, www.focusonthefamily.com
Thursday, December 13th – Teens and Young Adults Star Wars RPG – 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm – in the Fellowship Hall.
