This week we’ll move through further into the Old Testament prophets, just before stepping into the New Testament next week in our ongoing series through the Bible.
If you haven’t heard it yet, I encourage you to go online and listen to David’s story. He spoke to us about Jonah, and about what God has done for him… In both of their stories, we see that you can run… but God always brings you back to Himself. David has an incredible story that ended with the first standing ovation I’ve seen. It was well deserved.
By that way, that’s David in the pic above- he’s the silly one in the background, passing out a graduation certificate to a man who’s recently completed the program at The Village!
Here are a few other updates!
1. Kindness for Kids is in two weeks on April 12, 2014, a great day to get out and serve the neighbors. The Village Street Ministry Team has been collecting toys for kids in need and has a series of neighborhood projects lined up.
They’ve been working closely with the Neighborhood Association President to line up a great morning of reaching out to love others. They’ll hit the streets at East Brownsville Park, this Saturday, 11am to 2pm, for Kindness for Kids. The day will include toy giveaways, face painting, moon bounces, toy giveaways, and hot dogs.
Contact Blake Wilson (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more info.
2. Sozo training is on the same day, all day… 9 am until 4 pm, at Berney Points Baptist Church’s facility (2250 Blue Ridge Blvd, Hoover, Alabama 35226).
Contact Brannon Nix for more info (email@example.com)
3. Welcome baby Miriam Mae Cooke to the world! Jason and Heather welcomed her March 25, 2014 at 3:04 pm- on her grandmother’s birthday. She checked in at 20.25 inches and 7 pounds, 4 ounces. And she smiles when she sleeps (true!). Congrats, Cookes!
That’s all for this week!
I look forward to teaching you this Sunday, worshiping with you, and enjoying another week together.
We love you all,
Andrew and Cristy
