THIS YEAR'S TOPIC
The Bible is the foundation for faith among followers of Christ in churches around the world. Yet many such Christians never think to ask why this is the case. After all . . .
· How did we get this holy book?
· Who decided what would and wouldn’t be included in it?
· How do we know it’s true? Are there any errors in it?
· Is it necessary? Is it sufficient? Is it authoritative for my life?
· How can I understand it?
Even as Christians ask and answer such pivotal questions, the culture around us asks even more pressing questions: Isn’t the Bible antiquated and outdated? Isn’t it chauvinistic and offensive? Isn’t it downright deceptive and ultimately dangerous?
During this Secret Church, we will explore answers to critical questions about the Bible in order to discern what place it should (or should not) have in the lives of Christians and the implications those answers have for our lives, our families, and our churches in the culture around us.

We might not say it often, but we are always in need of volunteers. On Jan. 29th our staff will be hosting our annual Volunteer Fair. After service, we invite you to walk through building two (right behind our Connection Point) where each ministry will have a table set up with opportunities to serve.
We invite you to come and be apart of 12 Hours of Prayer on Jan. 28th. You can sign up online or at the Connection Point. Each person will have the opportunity to sign up for one or multiple 15 min. Slots beginning at 7am. During this time we will have the auditorium and Prayer Room available for your use. Start this year off seeking God’s direction on the way you can make much of Jesus this year.

To begin raising funds for this structure, we plan to have a community wide garage sale on October 8th here at the church. Your opportunity to help is as simple as this: we are asking for donations of garage sale items; any items in good condition you may have around the house that you are willing to give to our mission. We are looking for items such as infant and school aged children’s clothes in good condition, furniture, baby items, … anything really that would help us raise funds. We will be collecting these items on the following dates: Saturday, Sept. 17, Saturday, Sept. 24, and Saturday, October 1st.
You can drop donations off at the church, back near the MAC. If you have larger items like furniture or working appliances to donate, we would be happy to come to your house and pick them up on those same dates. Hours for drop-off or pick-up will be from 8am to 1pm. If you have items to donate or are simply ready to do some “spring cleaning” and you would like to schedule us to pick up, please contact me through the church office.
100% of funds raised will go to the costs of building this protective cover. For any of you who would like to help but are unable to donate items for the garage sale, please visit our website at www.GratefulSamaritans.com or help us get the word out by connecting with us on Facebook. Most importantly, we covet your prayers. Please join us in our walk of faith as we seek to share God’s love by helping those in need. Thank you!
