Youth Pastor Search: Pastor David and the Youth Pastor Advisory Team had our first interaction and interview with a prospective youth pastor this past Friday-Saturday, September 13-14. Things went really well. We're so excited to see how God will continue to work in this. Please pray for discernment for this youth pastor candidate, his wife, the elders and Pastor David.
Wednesday Evening Youth Group: We had a great kickoff last week! We'll be back at church this week, Wednesday, September 18. JR High is from 6:30–8 pm and SR High from 8-9:30 pm. If transportation to/from church is an issue for you, please let Mark know. He will arrange a ride for you. Bill Wright is back from China and will be our large group speaker this week. For the next 6-8 weeks, we will be focusing on apologetics (sharing and defending what we believe...the Gospel). See you on Wednesday!
Sunday School: Now that Bill Wright has returned from China, JR and SR High will be meeting separately this coming Sunday (September 22). Mark Hisken will be teaching the Bible Instruction Course (BIC) to the JR High, 7th-8th grade. Bill Wright will be teaching the Disciple's Path to the SR High, 9th-12th grade. This will be our regular arrangement going forward.
