Fellowship to Follow

 

Come hear of opportunities to assist Westside Baptist Church in Brownsville, Texas, as they receive 100 asylum seekers per day seeking entry into the United States. Each asylum seeker is being housed at the church for a few hours, fed, given a shower, and a change of clothes. Each asylum seeker is hearing the gospel and is assisted in transportation to sponsors or family members in the United States. (These people are seeking legal asylum in the United States)

How can we help?

 

A Place Called Heaven

A Place Called Heaven

 

Kurt and Tina Goebel started a new study on Sunday, June 2.  All are invited to join the class for this 6 week study: A Place Called Heaven by Robert Jeffers.  Books are $6.50.

 

If any of us learned we were going to move to a foreign country, we’d do everything we could to learn about that place so that we’d be prepared when moving day arrived.  As Christians, we know someday we will leave our familiar country and be united with God in heaven.  And yet many of us know very little about this place called heaven.  In this Bible study, explore several surprising truths about heaven and reveal whom we see there and what we will do.  This study will give believers a clearer picture of the divine place Jesus has prepared for us.  And it will encourage us to make heaven a greater priority in our hearts and minds so that we are better prepared for it.
