Blood Pressure Screening

Second Sunday of each month following service in Room 211

Many people suffer from hypertension, sometimes unaware of it. Routine blood pressure screening is one way to either screen for elevated blood pressures or monitor control (if on medication for high blood pressure). Your health ministry RNs offer blood pressure screening the second Sunday of every month and upon request. They are located in Room 211 (behind the sanctuary) after the morning service. Feel free to stop by to have your pressure checked. Contact Wilma Nelson if you want to be checked at a time other than the second Sunday.

Bible Studies – Wednesdays

Wednesdays • 6:45-8:00pm

Learning from the Word and Loving Jesus
Fireside Room 253
Begins January 29, 2020
Led by Pastor Tim
 
Many of us have struggled to consistently read, study, and benefit from the Bible because we don’t know how to get to the meaning and personal application. This class is about becoming equipped to read, study, and apply the Bible so that it comes alive for us and changes us. We will learn a lot about the Bible itself and practice using some key questions and techniques for the interpretation and personal application of various kinds of texts. Take your Bibles along to the class. But a book entitled, “A Visual Theology Guide to the Bible” will also serve as a resource for us. Please sign up and let us know if you plan to participate so that we know how many books to order. Note that it is OK if you sometimes travel or for other reasons are unable to make it to the class. Come when you can and you will benefit from our learning and practice together.
 
 
Go Fish – Women’s Bible Study
Room 250
Begins January 29, 2020
Led by Polly Johnson
 
This new study by Andy Stanley will take the struggle out of sharing your faith. Go Fish offers a new perception of the word “evangelism” by showing how believers can make it natural, easy part of everyday life. Divided into a six-session study, participants will enjoy the DVD lessons and thought-provoking study guide that help change the way they view sharing their faith.
