SHARE PROGRAM: If you haven't had a chance, please stop by the table this week. We're going to be giving away free produce until the gardens are done for the year. Beginning this Sunday (September 2nd) we're going to be making additions to the share table so we can continue to feed our people throughout the year. We're asking you to bring in any extra non-perishable food items you have to share with our church family. | We will start a new Sunday School lesson in the Generations class on Sunday, September 9. The lessons will be titled "The Myth of a Christian Nation". We will meet in the new fellowship hall and that is where we meet now. The author believes a significant segment of American evangelicals are guilty of nationalistic and political idolatry. Have evangelicals fused the kingdom of God with a preferred version of the kingdom of this world? Have we allowed the kingdom of God to be polluted with political ideals, agendas, and issues? Is the kingdom of God centered on taking America back for God? Has this fusion had negative consequences for the Church and the advancement of God's kingdom? Does finding the right political path have anything to do with advancing the kingdom of God? These questions and more will be the point of the study and discussions in the class. STOP BY THE TABLE IN THE FOYER TODAY to pick up your copy of The Gospel Project (One book per family). The Leader Guides will also be there for those who will be hosting home groups.

CHILDREN’S Suspendisse  CHURCH potenti.  Planet Zero is our children's worship time for grades
