Daily Bible Reading
As we mentioned in last week’s bulletin, we’re wanting to significantly increase participation in our Small Group Ministry. To do that we’ll need more groups in more locations around the city. And to do that we’ll need more hosts (to provide homes for groups to meet in) and leaders (to lead group discussions). These are often the same person or family, but not always. Our program is very simple. A typical group starts with 5-10 members, meets in a home on Sunday evenings, eats a meal together, prays together, and has a Bible study using the questions provided in the bulletin. If you’re willing to help, or think you might be
but have questions, please come to an information/training session next week, August 28th. We’ll meet in the gym immediately after second service for lunch (provided) followed by the info session where we can answer all your questions.
Netherwood Park’s Small Group Ministry will kick off its 8th year the Sunday after Labor Day, September 11th. This year we're really trying to expand the reach and influence of this ministry. We'd like to double the number of active groups and get a large percentage of the congregation involved. Why a focus on Small Groups? In short, they make the big group better. In Acts chapters 2 and 4 we see that all the believers, those who belonged to "the Way", experienced community - they cared for and supported one another. A Small Group allows members to form close relationships through meaningful conversation and focused prayer time. When any one has a particular need the other members of the group are there to help. Small Groups also help us grow spiritually through Bible study. Each member benefits from the others' Bible knowledge and life experience. And Small Groups give us opportunities to reach out to anyone around us that could benefit from community whether inside or outside of Netherwood.
How do Netherwood's Small Groups work? They meet in all parts of town, most on Sunday night, and most in homes. Some cater to women, or youth, or college age. Most groups discuss the sermon topic and its application by answering the questions provided in the bulletin each week. We'd love to have you in a Small Group! If you’re interested in joining one or in hosting one in your home please contact Zane Heard. Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the church office.
The Albuquerque Christian Children’s Home Back to School Drive is requesting gift cards so that the kids can go shopping for back to school items. Be sure to pick up your reminder sticker on the poster by the church office. Please return your gift cards to the office ASAP.
This fall Netherwood Park Church of Christ will be restarting our Satellite School of Sunset International Bible Institute under the direction of Britton Pruitt. If you have always wanted a biblical education but could not afford to relocate or if you simply have a hunger to strengthen your knowledge of the scriptures this school is for you. These professional courses are the same courses that the resident students at Sunset International Bible Institute receive during their training. Classes will begin in September with specific dates, days, times and other details to be determined and announced soon. There is a minimal cost for attending and you can find registration forms at the Welcome Booth in the foyer. You will also be able to register online.
Additional information will be coming soon on Netherwood Park’s website as well as through messages from Netherwood News and Notes.
