Seek Missional Evangelism study begins June 6

Join us for Seek Missional Evangelism: Are Evangelicals to Pursue Social Justice?, a six session Bible study for adults that explores the serious and complex problems of poverty, addiction, and homelessness. Passion alone won’t solve them. We need effective strategies for meeting human needs. Combining real-world examples of effective action with the wisdom of Christian leaders like the late Chuck Colson, Al Mohler, and Marvin Olasky, this study will challenge your ideas about social justice and how to transform lives in need.  This study will be led by Pastor Ted Tromble and Jodi Buntin.  Dates of this study will be: June 6, June 13, July 11, July 18, July 25, and August 1, from 6:00-7:30 p.m.

Please sign up (sign up sheet is in the Narthex) so we can ensure that we have study guides for everyone.

We have the solution for you!  Through February 19th, look for the large yellow dumpster near the JaM Community Center at the north end of the parking lot, and drop those paper recyclable items off!  We are doing a paper drive, with proceeds going towards our JaM (Jesus and Me) Community Center.

Sew and Sews Blankets

Eleven ladies met together on Thursday, January 25, 2018, to make blankets for the East High Caring Closet.

The completed blankets.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this fun morning. We completed eight beautiful blankets and had a lot of fun and fellowship doing so.  All skill levels were needed to make the blankets and everyone found a special job for themselves!  We cut, we pinned, we stitched, we knotted, and we admired the beautiful blankets.

Thank you to Mary Lee Hanson for her prepping of the project and making it all run smoothly.  Thank you to those who donated fleece.   Keep looking for future Sew and Sew events. You will be welcome to join with us.

Here are some pictures of the ladies making blankets:

Save the date! April 20, 2018 for Secret Church

Secret Church ’18 will hold a simulcast at Christ Alone Church on Friday, April 18, beginning at 6:00 p.m. (please arrive by 5:30 p.m.).

This year’s topic is, “Cults and Counterfeit Gospels”:

The apostle Paul was astonished that some followers of Christ in his day were “turning to a different gospel,” and he pleaded with them not to be deceived by those who wanted to “distort the gospel of Christ.” These warnings given to the church in the first century are just as relevant today for the church in the twenty-first century.

For the good of our souls and for the sake of the church’s mission, followers of Christ need to ask, “What false gospels are being taught today?” and “How can I recognize the true gospel among so many counterfeits?” Answering these questions will be the aim of Secret Church 18, “Cults and Counterfeit Gospels.”

We will consider the claims of Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, and other groups that claim to teach the truth. We will also explore more subtle distortions of the gospel, including prosperity teaching that is rampant across the church. In the end, our goal is to walk away from this Secret Church not only enabled to discern false gospels, but also equipped to share the true gospel with people around us and with peoples around the world.

Why Secret Church?

New Fall Studies and Classes

Our Men’s Bible Study will begin on Wednesday, September 27, from 6:30-8:00 p.m.  in Room 11 on the lower level.  They will meet on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, and will begin their year with a study of the Book of Ephesians.  See study leader Tim Ferral for more information.

Our Women’s Bible Study will begin on Wednesday, October 4, from 2:30-3:30 p.m. in the Lounge.  They will study the book, Joining Jesus on His Mission: How to be an Everyday Missionary, by Greg Finke.  See study leader Maureen Mannion for more information and to sign up.

Leadership, and leadership development are something we take very seriously at Christ Alone Church.  In our Leadership Development Course, our goal is to train godly leaders who will then teach others the truths of our faith.  On Sunday, October 1, Pastor Ted will begin this fifteen week ambitious course.  On that day, we’ll meet from 11:45 am. – 1:15 p.m. in Room 11 on the lower level.  All members of the church are invited to participate because this course not only equips church officers (i.e., elders) but it also equips Sunday school teachers, small group leaders and others.

We ask you to pray about taking this step in faith development.  On the Narthex table, there are copies of the curriculum book plus a sign-up sheet.

On Sunday, October 1, we’ll be starting the eight-week Membership Class for individuals wishing to join Christ Alone Church.  Here, we’re interested in sharing the good news of Jesus with our next-door-neighbors and the world.  We’re about knowing God and being faithful to Him.  If you believe in the Church and would like to add your commitment to our kingdom-honoring work, we invite you to attend the classes, meeting from 4:00-5:30 p.m. (respecting the Packer’s game schedule) in lower level Room 11.  If you think you would like to participate, there are materials and a sign-up sheet on the Information Table in the Narthex.  Please pick them up at your earliest convenience.
