NGM Teachers Needed
Next Generation Ministries is in need of more people to help serve on Sunday mornings, on a 3 or 4 week rotation. If you are interested, please pick up an application at the InfoTable or mark your interest on a comment card.
Mom’s Group meets every Tuesday from 10:00am-12:00pm at nearby valley parks and splash pads. Moms with kids of all ages are welcome. This is also a great opportunity for older moms to pour wisdom and encouragement into newer moms! Please contact Alex Pietropaulo (602.568.6597, firstname.lastname@example.org).
Book of the Month
April’s book of the month is Missions: How the Local Church Goes Global by Andy Johnson. This book will compliment our next sermon in the Philosophy of Ministry series. It is a short book that captures well our church’s approach to missions. If you have any questions or want the reading guide which includes a suggested one-month reading plan for completing the book in April, please see the booktable servants.
Today’s Next Generation Ministries lesson: No NGM. Children ages 3 and up will remain in the worship service
Next week’s lesson: 1 Samuel 17:1-58 – David Fights for God’s Honor
