ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL
This week: at both 9:00AM & 10:45 AM Sunday Schools, for one day only:
“The Last Word”
This is special humorous musical presentation by Mark Lowry (composer of “Mary Did You Know?”) will take a look at how we seek the last word with each other and how God has given us the last word in our lives. If you have never been to an adult Sunday school class before, this is a good opportunity to come and sample this final engaging and enjoyable session of the season.

Lord, I bring You my sinful nature as You've revealed it to me. I know I don't have anything valuable to offer except myself and my love. I can't earn Your forgiveness, but You've offered it as a free gift from Your Son, Jesus Christ. I accept Your control of my life and I intend to serve You, obey You, and follow You from this moment forward. You have my past, my present, my future, my family, my money, and my time. Nothing will I withhold. Thank You for loving me and forgiving me, and making me Your own. Amen
If you have prayed this prayer, let a pastor or elder know. We have helpful material to aid you as you grow in your Christian faith.
