Not Your Average Vacation!

The Beacon - March/April 2012

By Dianne Bennett • From our March/April 2012 newsletter

After a long flight to Tel Aviv, Israel, our group of 40 people from Michigan, Iowa, Ohio, Minnesota, and New York gathered up our luggage, prayed for a safe journey, and quickly filed onto a bus. We were headed out for a full day of Bible study and experiences in northern Israel. We learned from Marlin Vis, our leader, that “we were on a pilgrimage of the Holy Land – we were NOT tourists.” This meant keeping up with the leader and not wandering off to take pictures until we had completed our study so we knew what we were taking pictures of. We found out that Marlin is a wealth of information, and he shares it at a rapid fire pace (just like he walks…more about that later).

Library Reminder

Library BooksPlease remember to sign out library materials, even if you are just using them for the day! The sign-out cards are used to send reminder notes if materials have been out for an extended period of time, and also to determine if materials should stay on the shelves or be withdrawn. If sign-out cards have not been used, there is no way to know if the books have been used, and they run the risk of being removed from the library.

Bible Verse Pop-Ups

We’ve added a feature to our site that makes your life easier! Any time we type in a scripture reference, it automatically becomes a link that allows you to read the passage online. You can even read it right on this page by hovering your pointer over the verse. Try it here: Genesis 1:1. Pretty nifty, huh? Longer passages, such as Genesis 1:1-31 can be viewed by clicking on the link. You will be taken to biblia.com where you can view the passage in different translations. Ok, so maybe it doesn’t make life easier, but it does save you the time of looking the passages up on your own!
