Greetings E-news Friends,
What would you consider as most important and would it alter your schedule? If your child wandered away from your home and you could not find him or her, would that be a top priority? Or, if you lost your wallet with cash, credit card, or insurance card in it, would that be of the highest importance? How about your phone? If you lost it, how important would that be?
This Sunday we will look at another story Jesus tells about the Kingdom of God. It is the story about a great banquet. In it we will find what Jesus considered of most importance and what should top the list of what is of most importance to us. Come and find out how your list of urgent matters compares to Jesus’. You may be surprised.
On Sunday mornings, July 28, August 11 and 25 (at 9:00 AM or 10:45 AM) we will launch three sessions specifically designed to equip you in knowing how to respond to questions from your friends who are not sure about their faith. As a follower of Christ, you are to “Honor Christ and let him be the Lord of your life. Always be ready to give an answer when someone asks you about your hope.” 1 Peter 3:15. A book I would encourage you to purchase before the class is “Who Made God” (answers to tough questions) by Ravi Zacharias. If your small group plans to attend, have each one to REGISTER NOW
Ready, set, GO! Join us on August 21st starting at 6:00PM as we begin our fall ministries with a night of fun and fellowship. Briarcliff Church will celebrate the beginning of our ministries with an event on our west lawn. There will be music, fire pits, yard games, a corn hole tournament, and food! We encourage you to bring your families and friends as we share in a time of fun and intentional relationship building for people to get connected to our many ministries. You can sign up to serve at the event HERE!
The Next Generation ministries are very excited to announce our first parenting conference. You won’t want to miss this great opportunity to learn to parent your child’s heart and not just their behavior. Save the date for our two-day parenting conference, September 13-14. REGISTER HERE.
