Parent Seminar: Making a Spiritual Impact Through Sports
Tomorrow, February 5
Does your son or daughter enjoy sports? Being a part of a team can help us grow in our faith and make a difference in the lives of others. Join Dr. Rob Rienow and his son RW as they share biblical principles and practical action steps for how your student (and your family) can make a difference for Christ through athletics. RW (WA Class of ’16) played baseball and basketball in high school and four years of baseball in college at Olivet Nazarene University. Students (of all ages) are welcome to attend. There is no cost, but space is limited so please register by clicking here.
Spiritual Life Week
Spiritual Life week is February 7-11 and we are excited to see what God has in store for us. Our theme for the week is ROOTED and based on Colossians 2:6-7 “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”
Speakers Hannah Gronowski and Chris Reed will challenge us with the importance of being rooted in Christ, maturing in our faith, and bearing fruit for His Kingdom. Jana Dukes and team will lead our Thursday night worship night as well as Friday worship and response chapel. Please be in prayer for our community during this very special week.
