May 19th News

This week we will continue our series in the Book of Nehemiah by looking at Nehemiah 2:10-20.

Over the last several weeks we have used the story of Nehemiah to discover principles we can apply in the restoration projects in our own lives– and we have seen how Jesus is the ultimate restorer, renewer and rebuilder.

In the passage this week we will learn about another “brick” Nehemiah gives us. See if you can figure out what it might be ahead of time. It’s found in Nehemiah 2:12. Then, next week we’ll see an 8th brick from this passage as well (Nehemiah 2:17-18). I encourage you to read the passage a few times this week and reflect on what is happening.

Be sure to look below for info regarding the Grace2F Wednesday Night Bible Study starting May 29th!

Looking forward to Sunday!


Grace and peace,



Grace2F Wednesday Night Bible Study

Clever name, huh? Well, in my time in ministry I have spent hours in meetings to come up with cool, relevant, and engaging names for services, meetings, and ministries. I figured I’d just name it what it is… A chance to gather and look at Scripture together during the week.

So, I want to invite you to join us for a great opportunity to get to know each other a little better, look at some scripture, and see how we can apply it to our lives.

Here’s how it will work:

  • Each week, you will get an e-mail with the study (Scripture passage and questions to consider) a few days before the group meets.
  • Then, someone will explain a little bit about the passage and we’ll read it.
  • After that, we go through the questions and hear what you and others think about the passage and issues it relates to.

We’ll be starting this study called  Maturing in Christ: “Called to Disciple” on Wednesday, May 29th. We’ll meet at the same place we meet on Sunday mornings– Hilltop Community Church Fellowship Hall– from 7:00pm to 8:30. The study is six-weeks long so you can come try it out. If you can’t make all six weeks, that’s okay, because the studies can stand alone as well.

Here is a brief description and the weekly topics:

Now that I’m a follower of Jesus, what do I do next? I need to think through my priorities… my relationships… my goals in life. And I need a group of people to help stay the course.

•May 29th–  Under new Management
•June 5th–   Eternal Values
•June 12th–   Kingdom Priorities
•June 19th–   Quiet Time
•June 26–   Servanthood
•July 3rd–   NO GROUP
•July 10th–   Called to be a Witness
I hope that you can be a part of this experience. If you’ve never been to a Bible study/Small group, don’t be worried– just jump in and give it a try!
