Lent Community Bible Study - "Walk As Jesus Walked"
This Lent season, join us as historian and teacher Ray Vander Laan delves into the fierce passion of our early Christian brothers and sisters to walk like Jesus - even when the path became treacherous.  Becoming a disciple of Jesus demands more than merely a deep commitment to the text and complete devotion to Christian community. The Messiah is king, and believers are called to pick up their crosses in daily pursuit after becoming like Him. Come rediscover the fierce passion of the apostle Paul and our early Christian brothers and sisters as the rabbi leads you through the ancient cities.  Study begins at 6:00 PM through Lent- March 24 and April 7 and 14 at Stickney UMC. Fellowship time will follow.  

Community Easter Egg Hunt with Crafts, Games, Bible Story, and Fun. All children (birth -grade 5) will meet at 1:00, Saturday April 13 at Stickney United Methodist Church

Bethel Church is excited to invite you to enjoy a Choir Concert by Hillcrest Lutheran Academy of Fergus Falls, MN. Hillcrest Choir will be at Bethel Thursday 7pm on March 21, 2019 for the first stop on a 2 1/2-week concert tour through the south west United States. We need to host 52 students on Thursday night to Friday Morning. Contact Pastor Joel Davis at Bethel Church if you would like to host a few students. Hillcrest holds a long and storied tradition since 1918. Students fortify a Biblically-based view of the world that stands true outside the doors of Hillcrest. Hillcrest instructs students to love God’s Word, have passion for the world God created, and be active in ministry. Hillcrest students are challenged to defend their faith and understand why faith formation is imperative after their time at Hillcrest.

*Inspiration Hills is looking to hire counselors! If you, or someone you know loves Jesus and loves kids, we have the job for you. Counselors are the ones in charge of walking next to the campers from week to week, teaching them about Jesus and showing His love to them. This is a great opportunity to serve the Kingdom of Heaven by ministering to His children. So, if you want to be a kid all summer, enjoy God’s creation and join a community that lasts a lifetime, please check out our website, call us at 712-986-5193 or email Paige at We look forward to hearing from you!
