Welcome Wednesday Update
Holy Wednesday Friends!
"God's Kingdom has come near you." (Luke 10:9)
MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR OUR 2019 ALL VOLUNTEER GATHERINGS
This work of the kingdom in the life of Stillmeadow happens because of an incredible array of volunteers, from children's workers to parking lot attendants. As we continue the work of the kingdom we want to be intentional about bringing the volunteers together for training and encouragement. So we've set aside some times to do just that. May 4 is our All Volunteer Brunch (8:30-10:30). And August 18 and November 3 are our All Volunteer Potlucks (4:30-6:30).
JOIN THE NEW SUNDAY MORNING MORE CLASS
Beginning March 3, we will add another MORE Class. The Message Observation Reflection and Encouragement Class meets at 11 right after the 9:30 service on our Stillmeadow Lane Campus. Steve and Robin Yinger will be hosting this group. If you haven't plugged into a group on Sunday morning and are looking for a people to connect to, check this out!
BRING IN YOUR ALABASTER OFFERING ON SUNDAY
On January 6 we heard from Jerry Porter about some of the awesome things that Alabaster offerings have helped accomplish around the world. (If you missed it, check out his message here: https://youtu.be/aFte-P2OBGs?t=2096) And we handed out "Alabaster Boxes" that day! And you can bring your boxes back on February 17!
PREPARE FOR BAPTISM SUNDAY: MARCH 17
Have you committed your life to Christ and want to show the world? Baptism is a powerful symbol of a powerful reality: Christians are people whose past sins have been washed away through Jesus' sacrifice on the cross (1 Peter 3:21); not only this, but baptism symbolizes that Christians get "dunked" to symbolize that they are burying their old selves in Christ and get "pulled out" of the water to symbolize that they are allowing Christ to raise His life through them (Colossians 2:12). So, we're having baptisms on March 17. If you'd like to be baptized, sign up here: www.stillnaz.com/baptism.
RECEIVE THE BLESSING FROM SUNDAY
As Jesus helped Peter to reimagine his life in light of the kingdom of God, may you reimagine your life in light of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. From now on may you be willing to leave everything behind in order to follow Jesus’ purpose for your life. May the world receive the beauty of being on the other side of your “yes” to him!
