GRACE UNION KIDS - ELEMENTARY (AWANA)

Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.

This semester we are excited to continue the Awana program at Grace Union for elementary children on Wednesday nights. Awana stands for "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed" which is from 2 Timothy 2:15.  Sparks for 1st-2nd graders ignites the curiosity of early elementary-age kids to learn about the people and events of the Bible, building a foundation of wisdom for knowing Christ.  Truth & Training for 3rd-5th graders allows clubbers to go on an adventure to learn the good things God has to say in His Word.

We hope your children can join us!  Please contact Jon and Beth Strautz at jbstrautz@gmail.com for more information, to sign your children up or to volunteer to help.  You can learn more about Awana at awana.org.

MEN ALIVE IN CHRIST (MEN'S BIBLE STUDY)

Sundays at 9:00 a.m.

Bill Fain leads this group of men whose goal is to develop Christian friendships and grow together in faith.  

Men Alive in Christ will start its next series on Ephesians on March 19.  I will use The Book of Ephesians video series on Right Now Media by J. D Greear.  It is a 9 week study with videos that are 10-14 minutes long.  The shorter videos will allow time for group discussion and application.  There are discussion questions for each session that are provided as handouts.

Has it ever dawned on you that nothing has ever dawned on God?  He knew before the world began that His people would face hardship, so He gave us His Word.  Paul the Apostle writes to encourage believers to live well-we've been lifted from the graveyard of sin and called to shout the gospel into the darkened world.  Pastor and author J.D. Greear walks through the powerful words of Paul. In 9 sessions, J.D. digs into the text of Ephesians verse-by-verse and challenges believers to live out the gospel.
