Weekly News 2/22/12

Praise the Lord together for His Grace and Goodness!
As I look up from time to time from the busyness of my life I see such blessing in so many folks lives.  Growth in Jesus, choosing to do what God would have us do, ministry popping out of our churches on into the community.  PTL for His presence in our lives.

I do not know how long this has been going on but thought that it might help our Sunday School teachers who use the LifeWay adult material.  The first is the Explore series and the second is the Life series.   You can look them up on Facebook.  I have 'liked' their site if you want to check that out.  If there is positive feedback I may see if they can be put on our web page as a link or something along those lines.  They are about 15 minutes long and are over views of the weekly lessons.
