3BIG Things to Know This Week at Celebration

COUPLES GROUP BIBLE STUDY
We will be starting Andy Stanley’s study entitled, “TWISTING the TRUTH”. We will have 6 lessons to exposes some common ways God’s truth gets twisted. Each way has the potential to destroy relationships, cloud our decisions and distort our perception of Him. We’ll learn to recognize these in our culture and lives. We will start on June 11 with: “the Source of Deception”.  ALSO, reserve July 14-15 for our retreat to the DeBoer’s cottage.  More details to come.

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY RESUMES JUNE 6
Get ready for a trip through 1st Corinthians to study the many tangible issues dealt with in the 1st century and today in our world.  You are welcome to arrive at church at 10:00AM to sort clothes and make layettes for our Baby Basics ministry.  The Bible Study will begin at 10:30AM.  Hope to see you there!

logoSUMMER SERMON SERIES
Some sermons are considered great for a time but end up being quickly forgotten.  Jesus gave the Sermon on the Mount which has lasted for almost 2000 years.  It’s still as ground breaking and fresh as it was back then.  Join us as we hear the ever relevant words of Jesus in his Greatest Sermon Ever.
