Dear Friends,

We continue to be grateful that you are connecting with our worship services on Sunday mornings at 10:00am. Your commitment to participate in the service each week has been wonderful. Even though we aren’t able to physically worship together, we are still able to be the church, the one Body of Christ spiritually. We film the service on Saturday mornings so we can edit and upload the service to the various online platforms. So, even if you aren’t able to watch at 10:00am you can tune in at other times to suit your schedule. Many thanks to Sib Law and Erik Lindemann for their hard work in getting these broadcasts ready to go. It has truly been a team effort.

Stay safe and God’s blessings,
Tom

If you haven't been part of this study, please connect and you can jump right into the conversation. We are using Max Lucado's study of Psalm 23 with his book Traveling Light. The video runs about 25+/- minutes followed by some lively discussion/conversation.

An email each Wednesday morning will connect you by zoom video link or by phone for audio only.

New Zoom Prayer Time, Thursdays  at noon.

Prayer theme this week: the Fourth Commandment.
 
As the world attempts to cope with this pandemic, people either turn away from God or turn to God. For those who want to go to God, Kim Hill is offering a “Turn To” Prayer Meeting via zoom on Thursdays at 12 Noon. It’s about 20 minutes – drop in as little or long as you want. Pray silently or aloud.

An email each Thursday morning will connect you by zoom video link or by phone for audio only as we – reach out to God!  Questions contact Kim: landofhills511@gmail.com

The Reason for God 
Online study, beginning May 18


In his New York Times bestselling book The Reason for God, Timothy Keller established himself as a modern-day C. S. Lewis who brings together faith and intellect, theology and popular culture, modern-day objections and historic Christian beliefs.

This six-session small group Bible study captures live and unscripted conversations between Rev. Keller and a group of people to address their doubts and objections to Christianity. Using literature, philosophy, and Scripture, Keller and the group explore the truth of Christianity.

Sessions include:
•    1. Isn’t the Bible a Myth?
•    2. How Can You Say There Is Only One Way to God?
•    3. What Gives You the Right to Tell Me How to Live My Life?
•    4. Why Does God Allow Suffering?
•    5. Why Is the Church Responsible for So Much Injustice?
•    6. How Can God Send Good People to Hell?

Join Bridget Perry and Clare Schimpf for an hour every Monday at 4:00 pm for six weeks starting May 18. We will watch a 20 minute video online followed by a 40 minute discussion via Zoom* with a study guide. Invite a friend or family member to join you – near or far – all are welcome.
