Big House Sessions in Early 2020
You are invited to these opportunities to grow together before worship at 9:15 am in Room 24.
January 19, 2020 — Year in Culture (John Bush) We’ll look back at an exciting year that gave us both the biggest song and the biggest movie in history, plus a dizzying array of television, film, and music. Also, we’ll discuss whether streaming is making us forgetful, whether this was the year that image meant nothing instead of everything, and how much nostalgia we should feel for the death of the monoculture.
January 26, 2020 — Olive Tree/Oikos Update (Led by Council) We have an exciting opportunity to partner with Olive Tree Campus Church (OTCC). Council has been in discernment on this topic for the past four months and is now asking the congregation to join this process of discernment. Join us for the first of two identical sessions where you will be able to interact with the information Council has sent out (weekly Connections or your church mailbox) and to hear more about what Council has learned. We believe that your participation in one of these sessions is important and will be highly beneficial for helping as we together discern about a partnership with OTCC. The second session (same content) will be held during youth programming on Wednesday, February 5 at 6:30 PM. Council invites the congregation to join together in prayer for the rest of February as we discern this partnership together, followed by a congregational vote in March.
February 2, 2020 — Funeral Conversation (Pastors Kristen, Noah, and Ryan)
February 16, 2020 — Creation Care — Social Justice Committee (Microplastics–Paul Steen)
March 1, 2020 — Rev. Cory Wilson, Calvin Seminary
House Groups 2020
On February 9 our small group ministry, called House Groups, will begin meeting again. We will be studying N.T. Wright’s book Simply Jesus during Lent over six sessions. If you are not in a group, now is the perfect time to join. Groups meet either on Sunday afternoon or Sunday mornings during faith formation hour (9:15A). Contact person: Ross Weener.
