Pickleball For All 3/25/19

Want to give pickleball a try? On Mondays (starting March 25th) we’re taking over the gym from 6:30--8:00pm for church-wide pickleball.  Rookies and veterans of all ages are welcome. Bring a friend! Contact Brian Varble via email or at (859) 232-8955 if you have questions or need more info.

What is pickleball The fast growing sport of pickleball combines tennis, table tennis and badminton and is played on a smaller version of a tennis court.  The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.   --lexingtonky.gov

Hymns for the Journey--Lenten Devotions Blog 3/13/19

Click here to read this week’s devotion: “Holy, Holy, Holy” by Hank Ellington

Click here to visit the blog page where future devotions will be posted. The blog can be accessed on the home page by clicking on “News and Events.”

HYMNS FOR THE JOURNEY
AN INVITATION
 : Like a journey, the season of Lent begins and ends in vastly different places. From Ash Wednesday to Easter’s doorstep, it tracks along the rugged and narrow path of discipleship through the garden of abandonment to what would seem to be the dead end of the tomb were it not for God’s knack for surprise endings. And we are called to follow.

Pack lightly. Your possessions will only burden you and your every need will be provided. You already possess your most precious resources: Faith, Trust, God’s Word, and the Hymns You Know By Heart. This blog features a few of those hymns. Stories of meaning and reflection written by you and for you. 

Each week, we will bring you a new hymn to discover again in a unique way as it relates to a fellow pilgrim. What hymns speak to you?

Women's Study "He Chose the Nails" 3/18/19

Hope you’ll join us starting March 18th for a Monday morning Women’s Bible Study He Chose the Nails: What God Did to Win Your Heart by Max Lucado. The five week (short video and discussion) study will be held in Rachel’s Room (EB1 3rd Floor) on Mondays from 11:00am - 12:30pm.. Sign up by emailing Julie at wjdill35@gmail.com.

Linger on the hill of Calvary.
Rub a finger on the timber and press the nail into your hand.
Taste the tinge of cheap wine and feel the scrape of a thorn on your brow.
Touch the velvet dirt, moist with the blood of God.
Allow the tools of torture to tell their story.
Listen as they tell you what God did to win your heart.
