We welcome you to our service
today, November 1, 2015,
and invite you to join us in worship.
Message today: “Dealing with Doubt # 5 – How Do I Deal with Unanswered Prayer,” Luke 18:1-8 , Tim McAvoy
The next midweek service is this Wednesday, November 4. Each evening we gather begins with a fellowship meal
at 6:00 p.m. followed by teaching and activities for all ages (nursery to adult).For the adults, we have two
opportunities.#1. Financial Peace University. This Dave Ramsey course is led by Bill and Dawn Weaver and
teaches you how to manage your money using Biblical principles. For more information, contact Bill and Dawn at
434-973-7575 or 540-828-3333. #2. Kingdom Agenda, Living Life God’s Way – this six week Bible study by Dr.
Tony Evans teaches that the everyday Christian life informed by a Kingdom agenda based on God's Word — rather
than a secular agenda based on man's word — is the best way to make all of life work as our Creator intended. Our
other meeting times for our autumn midweek services are November 18 and December 2.
