Maranatha Newsletter – September 15-21, 2019

Rev. David Wiggs continued his series of lessons for the month of September on the topic of "Where in the world is God?" versus "God is making all things new!" We learned from his survey that many of us have a fairly negative view of the world. Some of us were even less knowledgeable than a baboon (we won’t say who!). Rev. Wiggs suggested that when change becomes uncomfortable we think of change as the movement of God in the world. He will continue on this topic next week.

Wednesday night Bible Study J122

There have been several times in past years I have moved out of my comfort zone and participated in a group study class offered at the church. I never approached anyone of them with confidence but rather had lurking thoughts like "why did I do this?" However, every time I experienced new spiritual growth and enjoyed the time spent with members of our church I had never met.

As announced in The WORD and during Maranatha Class, a study of the Gospel of Mark begins tonight from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in Jubilee Hall room J122. It is taught by Marita Morgan and Don Hertzler, both engaging teachers. I am told there are very few planning to attend. Please consider this class and if the spirit moves you ………I’ll see you tonight!
