SCRAP FOR CHANGE:
Raising money to change the world.
The dumpster has arrived and will be in
the parking lot for the month of April!
Ferrous metal (magnetcis) can go inside
the dumpster. Examples of ferrous metal
includes sheet iron (washers, dryers,
bikes, etc), heavy metals (cast iron,
machinery), and plate and structural (I
beams, steel plates, etc). Non-ferrous
metals (non-magnetci) go next to the
dumpster on the ground. Signs are
posted next to the dumpster with this
information as well. ALSO - we would
like to extend a “Thank you!” to Regal’s
Scrap yard in Howell who has agreed to
come pick up (and pay us for!) massive
pieces of steel - like old train cabooses
(true story!).

ADULT GROWTH CLASSES
-- Join Any Class at Any Time --
•THE STORY - Sundays at 9:30 am “The Story” curriculum will open your eyes to
God’s master-plan as it unfolds in the lives of the Bible’s characters. Discover the
heart of God’s story and the joy that comes as you align your story with God’s.
Room 105 with Pastor Brad Lockwood
•WISDOM FROM THE BIBLE - Sundays 9:30 am Our growth as Christians involves
a change of mind, not only a change of heart. This change of mind occurs as
the Holy Spirit shapes our understanding through the Word. Therefore, the study
of biblical wisdom plays an important role in our spiritual maturity. This class
provides us with an opportunity to gain that essential, biblical perspective on life.
Room 204 with Tom Davis.
•BASIC TRAINING FOR A FEW GOOD MEN - Sundays at 9:30 am (Men) It’s
easy to be a man, but it’s hard to be a good one. The excuses of the weak and
the wimpy are endless...Life isn’t fair. The playing field isn’t level. The rat race
of the marketplace gets old - fast! Basic Training For a Few Good Men will
build you up in order for you to be free to “be all that you can be,” a man of
convictions, commitments, compassion, and courage. Room 203 with Robert
Proctor.
•DIVORCECARE - Thursdays at 6:30 pm Most people tell you that separation and
divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences in life. The DivorceCare

Ukraine: Continue to pray for the people of Ukraine in these days of political tensions.
Remember the FM national team who endeavor to plant simple churches (a simple
church may meet anywhere; with or without trained leaders, formal liturgy, programs
or structures) where there are no evangelical churches. Begin praying now for the
children’s summer camp in villages and for open hearts to Jesus.
God answers prayers and He is listening any time you talk with Him. We have a new and exciting way to
submit your prayer requests and let others know you’ve prayed for them. Visit our new prayer site at www.
