Summer is for Traveling

Along the Road by John A. Beck

May 18th-June 29th
6:30 – 7:45 pm Tuesday Evenings – On Zoom

Most of Jesus’s teaching was done outdoors as he walked along the road. He led his listeners to specific locations where He knit His lessons into the soil and scenery. Join us for our summer book club selection “Along the Road” where Lynn will take us on the journey of how Jesus used geography to tell God’s story.

First B is hosting Alpha Online, an open and informal weekly conversation that explores the bigger questions of life, spirituality and the Christian faith. Alpha is where people can meet in a relaxed, friendly, and judgement-free environment, watch a short film that explores those questions, and share thoughts and ideas about the topic.

This is a great place for those of you who have questions about who Jesus is and want to learn and discuss more about the Christian faith.

The Gathering – Welcome to Holland

Friday, May 14th 7:00 – 9:00pm
In person with childcare available

2020 was most certainly a year of cancelled, postponed, and revised “plans”. Most of us lost something or~ God forbid ~someone very significant to us during this unprecedented pandemic year. While we did not anticipate the events that unfolded in our lives, nor the destinations where we landed, we are still here, and God is STILL God; and He has never stepped off His throne or lifted His holy gaze from upon us (no matter where we now find ourselves).

Please join your sisters in Christ as we come together and we process both the disappointments and the blessings of living the unexpected journey in Christ Jesus….

Welcome to Holland, dear ones… may you be richly blessed!!!
