Greetings E-news Friends,
This Sunday: The End of Time
Every generation, since the resurrection and ascension of Jesus, people have been trying to produce a timeline for his return. This was the immediate question from the disciples—when will this happen and what will be the signs? People have gone crazy in trying to figure that out. Yet even scholars have not been able to unravel the details of what Jesus was saying to the disciples when they met with him in the olive grove (Mount of Olives) before his crucifixion. However, the most important thing is abundantly clear; be ready, be on guard, keep awake, for you do not know when the time will come! This Sunday we will unpack some of what it means and how to live—ready, on guard and awake for his coming. This is a game changer in life. Don’t miss it!
If you missed last Sunday, you can listen HERE.
Prayer Breakfast - March 30
There is nothing more important than for us to pray if we want to see God do his mighty work in our church. S.D. Gordon once said, “The greatest thing anyone can do for God and man is to pray. It is not the only thing; but it is the chief thing.” Every significant movement of God has happened in response to his people praying. On Saturday morning March 30, 8:00-9:30 AM, we are going to take time to fervently pray for God’s power to be at work in and through our church. Make every effort to join us.

Who’s Your One?
Easter is only a few weeks away. It is the celebration of the greatest event in all of history; the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Who is Your One that you could invite to join us in worship on Easter? This Sunday, you will be given a book marker with scriptures on it to use as a tool to help you select, pray for and reach out to someone who needs the gospel. The following week you will be given a 30-day prayer guide to use in praying for Your One. You can download the guide now if you would like to have it electronically. (Click HERE) Take a look at this one minute challenge for reaching Your One. (Click HERE) There are thousands of people who need the hope of Christ and it all begins with our praying for just ONE.

Senior Night | March 22nd
We are thrilled about having our second Senior Night! All students who are seniors in high school are invited to the Stonecypher’s house on March 22nd at 6:30PM for a time of fellowship, games and s’mores! We hope to give Biblical wisdom to seniors as they take their next steps in their journey with Christ. Following the night, we will send parents an email on what was discussed and areas in which we feel the seniors might need encouragement.
