I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July weekend! The service and music were extremely well done and very moving!
We will be starting a new study this Sunday. Surprised by Hope by N. T. Wright. Jeff and I will lead the first lesson. We have the DVD and participant's guide from Rodney, but there is an optional book that you can purchase if you would like to read along. Here are a few options:
Cokesbury in Plano can order them in 5-7 days for $19.99. You have to tell them that this is the internet price, and they will honor it. I can make one large order if you would like. We probably won't have them for this Sunday, but they will be in before the following Sunday. This is a 6 week series.
Barnes & Noble and Borders for $24.99 Call ahead to see if they have any.
Amazon had them for about the same prices, maybe a little less.
Children's Summer Sunday School
Those of you who have signed up to teach Children's Sunday School this coming Sunday, July 11th should be receiving the teaching materials in the mail. Connie mailed them before the holiday. We still need 3 people for August 1st (1 for 2nd grade and 2 for 6th grade). People who have done this in the past say that it is really easy and really fun! Please let me know ASAP if you can fill the August 1st spots so that Connie can fill them!
Gilley's July 17th
Free country western dance lessons for intermediates (6pm) and then beginners (7pm). I believe if you come in any time after 8pm you must pay the $15 cover and parking. The house band, Chris Rivers starts at 8pm and then Wade Bowen will go on around 11pm. The bull is $5 to ride. They don't serve any food. Getting to Gilley's can be a little tricky so ask for directions if you have never been. The long hallway to Gilley's is around back of the same building as the Palladium Ballroom.
See you all Sunday!
