Small Group Bible Study Meetings
We are doing small group Bible study meet-ups. Three groups are meeting so far. One in the Spirit Lake vicinity, one north of Spirit Lake, and one south of Spirit Lake. Two of the meetings start with a light meal followed by the study. The study is relational in nature and therefore structured around everyone participating. An ice breaker that introduces the topic begins the study. Following everyone’s sharing in the ice breaker, the Scriptures are read and then through a series of questions the verses are examined in real and practical ways. Acceptance, caring fellowship, and Christian love are the principles guiding the small group experience. Everyone’s voice is important and acknowledged. Prayer begins the study as well as ends the study. All who have participated have reported so far that they are being blessed by the experience and are looking forward to meeting again the following week. If your heart yearns for connected Christian fellowship where Bible passages are exalted worthy for discussion and deep study, consider attending one of the small groups. You will be more than welcomed! For more info on how you can get involved, contact Olaf Betat via email: email@example.com .
Small Group Meetings are happening on either Tuesday or Wednesday evening at the following homes:
Spirit Lake North: Raynow (208-610-8453)
In Spirit Lake: Sutherland (208-263-3813)
Spirit Lake South: Carriker (208-623-6158)

Loose Offerings and Tithe Envelope
Our local Church Board has voted to use the loose offering each week for our local Church budget. This decision was based on the understanding that most people expect the funds they put into loose offerings to be used to support the local church. It is important that we do our best to meet the expectations of the givers in the use of the funds they have so generously given. If you have concerns regarding this decision, please bring them to any member of the Board.
Someone is praying for you in our church family. Select your Prayer Rock for the week (or longer) for someone in our congregation. Prayer Rocks are available in the church entry.
Please remember to bring items to fill the basket at the church entry.
