Old Testament Overview
Mon, November 3, 2014
7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Campus: North Charlotte

The Old Testament can be kind of intimidating, can’t it? There are some crazy battles and rules about not eating bacon and even a story about a guy that was thrown into a lion’s den and didn’t die because God protected him! There is history and law and poetry and prophecy. In Old Testament Overview, we dig into the story of the Old Testament and answer some of the most common questions that Christians and non-Christians alike have asked. If you’ve ever wondered if the Old Testament is still relevant, you’re going to want to join us for this study.

Instructor: Casey Jordan

Date: Every Monday from October 20 to November 10

Join us on Saturday, November 1 from 9:15 - 10:30 a.m. helping to serve at this home and to begin building amazing relationships with both the residents and other people from Meck!

Barium Springs Home for Children is an organization committed to providing a "Safe Home" for children through group homes, therapeutic foster care and adoption programs. They strive to provide healing for individuals that are troubled, abused or neglected through educational, prevention and developmental programs.

It is through these group homes that Meck is able to serve by taking one evening a month to provide dinner for the children staying there. This affords the room parents a break from the cooking for the night, and allows Meck to show these kids that people in their community care about them.

Please join us on Monday, December 8 from 5 - 7:30 p.m. to participate in this serve day. **Please note: This is a special Christmas serve day and will follow a different format than our typical serve days. You will be contacted with more details after registration.

The Grounds is proud to introduce a brand new book club... for kids! The club is designed for 4th and 5th grade students who have a love of reading and who want to apply what they're learning about God to what they're reading in books. Every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month, the group meets to discuss books that are either faith-based or full of biblical principles. We participate in fun activities to bring the lessons to life and give the children the opportunity to share their thoughts with others.
