APRIL 2013


Archways - April 2013

April is “I Love Sunday School” Month. Sunday School is the place to get connected. Sunday School is the place where deep relationships can be built. Sunday School is so important to the life of our church. Whether you call it Bible Study, Small Groups, or Sunday School, the purpose is the same. Paul writes in Ephesians 4:16, “From Him the whole body, fitted and knit together by every supporting ligament, promotes the growth of the body for building up itself in love by the proper working of each individual part.” If you are missing from Sunday School at 9:09 a.m. on Sunday mornings, the body is not complete. On Sunday, April 7, at 8:15 a.m., we have the opportunity to enjoy a great pancake breakfast together, and then enjoy the Sunday School hour immediately following. The breakfast will include pancakes, bacon, juices, coffee, and chocolate milk. Come join us, get fed, enjoy the fellowship and be ready for a great day in Bible Study and worship. When was the last time you invited someone to join you for church? Was it for our Resurrection Sunday Service? Was it several months ago? Have you ever invited anyone to church? Let the “I love Sunday School” theme encourage you to invite someone to come to church with you.
