Adult Bible Studies Sundays @ 9:30 and Tuesdays at 10 a.m.
We all have stories—some funny, some painful—that contribute to who we are. What we don’t always see is that God is weaving an overarching story that started before time, extends through history, and will reach far beyond our lifetimes. God extends an invitation to each of us to step into His story and experience the ongoing narrative of His Word in our lives. In this unique DVD-based study, our groups will expound on key stories in King David’s life. We will examine the concepts of back-story, setting, plot, conflict, and resolution within the life of David and within your own lives. Step into the power of God’s story and see where He can take yours.
FIRM FAITH WINTER RETREAT: “DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING”
February 7-9, 2014 at Howell Nature Center, Woodland Lodge
1005 Triangle Lake Rd, Howell, MI 48843
What is it? Our annual youth group retreat is a weekend where we disconnect from the busy-busy activities of normal life to get away together, grow as a group through fun activities, and reconnect with God.
Who can go? Any teen from 6th through 12th grade! Friends are also welcome.
Where is it? We go to Howell Nature Center in Howell, MI (approx. 45 minutes away), where we rent a cabin with a kitchen, two huge bedrooms with bunk beds, and a common room.
What do we do? The weekend is a mix between group sessions (where we worship and center an hour around our theme), outdoor activities (such as bonfires, night hikes and zip line), and indoor fun (like our no-talent show and games). Trust me, nobody ever gets bored – there’s always something to do!
How much does it cost? $70 per student – this covers the cost of renting the facility, food, and zip line.
What do I need to bring? Bedding, toiletries, clothes, outdoor coat, board/card games (optional), flashlight, Bible, anything you might need for the no-talent show. ALSO, fill out and bring “Agreement to participate for minors” form.
How do I sign up? Get in your $70 (check made out to Mt. Hope Church) and the below form as soon as possible!
The women’s spring Bible study will be on the book “Mercy Triumphs” and will begin on Thursday, February 6th at 12:30 pm.
Join the Mt. Hope Literary and Chocolate Pie Society for a discussion of a book and a yummy dessert. The Society meets at 6:00pm on the first Tuesday of every month.
February’s selection: The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult
