  1. 1. SERMON NOTES #1: The Believer’s Battle SERIES Ephesians 6:10-13 January 5, 2014 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.

  5. 5. FAMILY MOVIE FUN NIGHT! (Rescheduled from November 17) Sunday, January 19 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. (Hosted by the Sr. High Youth Group) NEW: “Grace” - DVD study with Max Lucado (Meeting in the Board Room) Max Lucado asks: Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace? Strengthened by grace? Emboldened by grace? Softened by grace? Snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace? Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off. Let’s make certain grace gets you. Attend this Sunday School class and learn about Grace! Continued: The Gospel of John (Meeting in the middle adult room) This mixed adult class continues the Bible exposition of the Gospel of John and will include class discussions led by various Parkside teachers as we seek to grow in our faith and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed in Scripture so that we may have life in His name. NEW: Luke: Finding Truth & Healing in Jesus’ Words to Women (Meeting in the new adult classroom) Jesus often showed women acceptance, compassion, and understanding. In each lesson of this insightful study of Luke, we will focus on a conversation between Jesus and a woman, showing how he helped free them of their negative feelings and destructive behaviors---and encouraged them to embrace healthy attitudes and positive actions. You will have your own encounter with Jesus and learn how truly valuable you are to him. If you received a new laptop for Christmas and wonder what you will do with your old one, consider donating it to the church to be used in our Christian Education Wing. We could use a couple workable laptops capable of running basic programs such as Word and Power Point. We don’t require a lot of RAM memory as it will not be used for games. Thanks! We’ll be showing: “Symphony” (I Lift My Hands) with Louie Giglio It’s staggering when we begin to realize that all creation is singing the praises of the One who fashioned and formed the Universe. Yet, singing stars and earth’s ovation cannot drown God’s desire to hear your voice. In the midst of a miraculous and immense symphony of praise, God is still mindful of you, going to extraordinary lengths to give you life and breath through His Son. Dr. Seuss’s film “Horton Hears A Who” Horton, an elephant with sensitive hearing, comes to the rescue of the microscopic “Who’s” who live in a world so small that it fits in a speck of dust. The Holland Sentinel is donating Sunday newspapers to the church in support of youth outreach. If you would like to support this cause by making a donation for the paper, the newspaper rack is located in the front entranceway. Thank you!
