Tuesday, September 30
Thursday, October 2
The Worship Arts Ministry is holding auditions for singers and musicians Tuesday, September 30 and Thursday, October 2. Please contact Tessa Swearengin at 918-252-1611 by September 24 to schedule an audition or if you have any other questions. Also, pick up a Worship Arts Form at the Information Booth. Fill it out and bring it with you to audition. We hope that you will prayerfully consider sharing your gifts and talents with us if you truly believe you have a calling to bless and inspire others in worshipping God.
COFFEE & A BIBLE
Our early fall session runs August 21 - September 25. Dianne Teague will be teaching on "Our Authority as Believers." Ephesians 2 reveals the message and gift of salvation by grace. With this gift we have been seated with Jesus in heavenly places. By faith we take this position and allow God to teach us how to exercise the authority He provided in Christ Jesus. Come join us at Coffee and a Bible from 10:00 AM - noon in the Word Shop Café and learn how to more effectively walk in your authority as a believer.
WORD SHOP CAFE
Our August specials are NIV Bibles at 25% off retail. In the café, our Flavor of the Month is always 50 cents off. This month, try a Coconut Cream Blended.
Hot off the press: the "Divine Empowerment Workbook" to accompany Geof Jackson's Divine Empowerment book is available for $9.99.
Do you have a couple of hours to do some baking once every three months or so? We're going to start a new outreach at Grace Church, visiting first-time guests with fresh-baked, homemade cookies. Pick up a flyer at the Information Booth or call the church if you're interested in getting involved with the new "Cookie Jar Ministry."
The next baptism will be Sunday, October 19. For more information, pick up a card at the auditorium exits.
LOST & FOUND
Just a reminder, we have a "lost & found" at the Information Booth. It's filling up with Bibles, glasses, coffee mugs, jewelry, etc. If you're missing any of these items, you might find them here!
