Evangelism is about reaching out to others. Really? You think
Brace yourself. In Nudge, author Leonard Sweet sets out to revolutionize our understanding of evangelism. He defines evangelism as “nudge” – awakening each other to the God who is already there. Sweet’s revolution promises to affect your encounters with others, as well as shaking the very roots of your own faith. So brace yourself.
Join us on Saturdays at The Arrowhead as we discuss a chapter each week. This book is light reading and may be helpful to you as you consider how to do your part in fulfilling The Great Commission. Sign up on the bulletin board near the elevator.
Family Camp begins at 7 pm on 7/22 and concludes with the morning service on 7/31. Grab a brochure or check the schedule online to join us at camp as often as you can.

New Small Groups
Be ye holy, for I am holy,” commands God. But holiness is something that many Christians feel confused and frustrated about; we’re often not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. In The Pursuit of Holiness, Jerry Bridges helps us see what we should rely on God to do―and what we should take responsibility for. Join us Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30 am in Room #103 for a 12-week discussion Bible Study from this modern classic on holiness. Teacher: Laurel Shields.
