Men's Prayer Breakfast & BBQ: Saturday, June 2nd, 7:30 in the PIT. Start the day and summer off right with this intergenerational time of faith, fellowship, and food. Dads are encouraged to bring their sons to participate, so each generation can interact, build up, and encourage one another. We're adding BBQ to the menu this time in addition to the usual fare. Save the date, spread the word, and invite a friend or two. **Dads, keep in mind that breakfast entails the meal, a short message, and prayer time, so please consider that when you decide who will accompany you

Dive-In: As we conclude the study of the instruments of Israel's cultic worship, we examine the cost of being male (yikes!), a place to wash, anointing priests and one another, and learn how to prepare for the sabbath: to bring to completion the ultimate purpose of God for the created order. Join Jack Ladson at 9:15 in the adult classroom for an insightful study. Please note that starting next week we are now prepared for the eschatological restoration.
