It’s time to put away the See’s Candy and holiday desserts! 2022 is here and elementary kids are beginning a new series on Self-Control-choosing to do what we should do instead of what we want to do
. Not an easy task! But fortunately, kids will discover as they follow Jesus, the Holy Spirit can give them the power and wisdom to trust God and make the wise choice.

Adult Ed Class: Isaiah's Hope
Taught by Tim Stafford
Starts January 9 at 10:30 AM in Room 113
In these difficult times we could use a dose of well-grounded hope. Isaiah provides it--lots of it. His times were as bleak as ours, and more. And he sees quite clearly what is wrong. But he portrays bright hope in beautiful, thoughtful terms. This six-week class will be meditative, providing plenty of space to think about how we can apply Isaiah's words to our own rancorous era.
New Insights on the Apostle Paul
Tuesday, January 11, 10:00 AM, Room 113

Movie Night: News of the World
January 13, 6:30 PM, Room 113
