5 Things to Know This Week @ First Pres

1 Resistance is not futile

Our worship series from the Book of Esther continues, as Haman’s plans for the execution of the Jews quickly unravels. The Chancel Choir will sing a fabulous new anthem, “These Feet Got Joy,” as we celebrate God’s goodness and hope.

2 AXIS Workshop

AXIS is a new online resource for parents, teachers, and anyone who’s involved in the lives of young people. Each AXIS session includes 3-5 videos introducing a topic, along with questions to start a conversation. This is a very good resource that costs about $2000 per church or family, but has been purchased for churches by our national church. It’s free, so let’s take advantage of it. Come to the workshop on Sunday at 12 noon. We’ll have sub sandwiches and chips. Bring a side dish if you can. All participants will receive the login information.

*3 CRU visits CTW *

Our CTW High School Fellowship will be visited this Sunday by members of CRU (Campus Crusade) from OJC. From 4-6 p.m., here at the church.

4 God’s House

Our God’s House Kidz begin a new unit this week, and it’s all about God’s people staying faithful. With stories from 1 Kings.

5 The Reason for God

It’s our new six-week video & discussion series, using Tim Keller’s super-popular resource, “The Reason for God.” Our topic this first week is (yea!) science. Are the claims of faith and science compatible? Do they need to be? You may be surprised. Join Pastor MJ at 11:15 a.m. in the Cranson Room.

And finally prayers…

For Leonard Vance as he continues healing from surgery; for Mike Miller, as he continues chemo treatments; for the teachers and students in our adopted classrooms at the LJ Primary and Intermediate Schools.
