A new adult Sunday School class begins on Sunday, March 1. We will be going through the book Connected: My Life in the Church by Dr. Thom S. Rainer. This study provides a Biblical understanding of what it means to be a part of the body of Christ through a study of the Book of Ephesians. This is not a plea for more activity. Rather we need to have our hearts directed to love what Jesus loves. He loves the church—His body. “Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for it.” (Ephesians 5:25). We are praying that this series will encourage us all to grow at becoming more purposefully Biblical in thought, attitude and action as members of His Body. Please join us in prayer as we consider what Christ may want to teach us as He builds His church. This group Bible study is a great companion or follow-up to Dr. Ranier’s I Am A Church Member.
All adult Sunday School classes will combine and meet in the auditorium at 11:20 am to watch the video and then we will break into discussion groups.
It is not necessary to have a Connected workbook, but they are available for $6.95 (printed or e-book) through Lifeway Stores.

Poverty Summit 2015
Mind the Gap

What would Lucas County look like if every Christian church were working in some loosely but strategically coordinated manner? What would the church itself look like? The goal of this one-day event is to develop a plan for the Christians in Lucas County to tackle poverty. Dr. John Perkins will be the keynote speaker.
Lunch will be served and there will also be a resource fair available between sessions. To make this work, we need representatives from every church in the county. Would you please consider attending and invite others? For more information visit their website at http://povertysummit2015.pgtb.me/4STTT8February 12, 2015

Our Annual Congregational Meeting will be on Sunday, February 22 during the Sunday School hour (approx. 11:20 am). Please plan to attend since we will be voting on the new budget and other church matters. In order to cast a vote, you must be a doctrinal signer, at least 18 years of age, and have attended Christian Fellowship for at least one year. The list of doctrinal signers is posted on the bulletin board outside of the coat room and there is also a copy on the nametag table. If you would like to sign a Desire for Fellowship form, please see one of the elders. There is also a copy of the proposed budget and mission-giving on the table outside the coat room. Please feel free to take a copy and look it over before the meeting.
