Greetings, Church Family and Friends!
We had a great time Wednesday evening hearing Kyle and Sue report on their trip to Israel.
Around 35 church members and people from the community gathered in the sanctuary to see slides and hear the narrative of the Bridgmans' 10 days in the Holy Land. Afterward, Kyle and Sue hosted us in the Fellowship Hall where Sue had a full Mediterranean appetizer smorgasbord for us to enjoy. It was amazing! Thanks to all who came out for it, and thanks to Kyle and Sue for putting it together. For those who weren't able to attend but who would like to see the pictures, contact Kyle for a private viewing. If there are enough who would like to see it, I'm sure they could be persuaded to do a second presentation in the future.
PRC BOTTLE REMINDER: We still have 15 bottles yet to be returned to the office. These are baby bottles with special slotted lids. If you have one, please return it (even if it is empty) so that we can get it back to the Pregnancy Resource Clinic. If you took your bottle to the PRC instead of bringing it to the church office, please let us know so that we can account for the bottle. Thanks for your cooperation!

FIGHTER VERSE: Our Fighter Verse this week is Jeremiah 29:11-14
11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. 13 You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.

READ THROUGH THE BIBLE The Five-Day Bible Reading Plan is attached to this e-mail for your convenience. You may want to access additional resources to support your reading available at this website.
BONUS: If you are looking for solid, quality Christian podcasts and other video material (audiobooks, documentaries, webinars, kids books and shows), try the Canon Press app. You will find an abundant supply of rich resources on how to live Christianly in the world today. Particularly helpful for men are the resources on biblical masculinity such as It's Good to Be a Man by Michael Foster and Dominic Tennant. Like all resources, you will find some things here that you agree with wholeheartedly and other things with which you may disagree. But, agree or disagree, you will be challenged to be the man, woman, boy, girl, family, church, and community God designed you (us) to be. To God alone be the glory!
See you in church!
Grace & Peace,
Pastor Greg Dixon
