1. Remember we are showing the move Wonder Friday night (as in tomorrow April 13) as a way to bless our friends and neighbors. There will be fresh popcorn, beverages, and a quality movie. Show up right at 6:30PM so everyone can get snacks and be ready for the movie by 6:45PM. I will introduce people to our church and our Christ for a few minutes before the show. Also, in light of the movie’s content about a person with disabilities, and the nature of Christ’s love for all people, we’re taking donations for Discovery Living (a local non-profit that cares for people with disabilities). 100% of all gifts will go directly to Discovery Living.
2. The adult Sunday School class will be starting our new curriculum Life Explored this Sunday at 11AM. If you haven’t seen the trailer, you can see it on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIoZDiIpbpU If you took a participant book, remember to bring it along with you this Sunday. This is a perfect class to invite religious seekers and friends to attend.
3. And finally, please consider investing $39 and a day of your time into The Gospel Coalition’s conference right here in Cedar Rapids on Saturday April 28th. I’m already signed up and very excited to attend. You can register here: https://goo.gl/R4UofH
4. Last week we sent out a mailer with 2 letters about my sabbatical as well as some information on a month long fundraising campaign called “UpDo 2018.” Click here to see the April 2018 Mailer.
