Youth Group Event: November 27th @ 7:15p.m.
Youth Group is invited to a “conversation partner” activity with the Immigrant and Refugee Center of Northern Colorado (formerly Right to Read) located at 917 10th Ave in Greeley. This will involve approximately one hour of getting to talk to different students attending English classes at the center, which offers practice for them to use English in a non-traditional classroom setting, as well as an opportunity for you to see some of the diversity of your community here in Greeley. We will provide guidelines and suggested conversation starters, and each pair will have around 5 minutes to ask each other questions and simply talk. We ask that participants be 14 or older to come alone, or under 14 with an accompanying adult. Not only is this an easy way to get to know our neighbors, but it also is an excellent experience to add to a college resume. Afterwards we will go out for ice cream! Contact Summer Knoshaug or Mike Bonnell with any questions, hope to see you there!

Moms in Prayer: Every Tuesday
In a culture that seeks to steal our children, we are moms who gather one hour each week to battle for them and their schools in prayer. When we place our children and their schools into God’s care, He calms our fears and fills us with His peace and hope. That’s what Moms in Prayer is all about.
Rebecca Andrews and Janet Grove will be starting a Moms in Prayer group that will start Oct. 24th. We will meet at the Grove’s home every Tuesday starting at 8:15am. There will be an adjoining room for kiddos if you need to bring any with you.
Please contact Rebecca (970-391-9101 or firstname.lastname@example.org) or Janet with any questions you might have.
Honduras Mission Trip
Have you ever felt the desire or call to be involved in international missions? We will be taking a team of people to serve on a short-term mission trip in Choluteca Honduras June 16-24, 2018.

Faithwalkers Midwest: December 29th – January 1st
The Faithwalkers conference came from the desire to give young men and women the opportunity to hear pastors who have been devoted to Jesus Christ and the Great Commission. At Faithwalkers, people get a chance to hear those men’s stories of faith, to benefit from those men’s life experiences, and to learn from those men who have been in the arena for many years. The conference provides a way to continue to pass on the core beliefs of the Great Commission church movement. It is a rallying conference for everyone: young people, couples, parents, and families, to inspire them to be devoted to Jesus Christ and the Great Commission.
The name Faithwalkers was inspired by the Scripture: “We walk by faith and not by sight,” (II Cor. 5:7). Also the name Faithwalkers makes a connection to the Native American culture where they would sit around the campfire with the “old ones” listening to them tell stories of the great hunt and deeds of the past. As Christians, older believers are to proclaim the deeds of God to younger believers, as is written in Psalm 78:4: “We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord.” Christians from Great Commission churches gather to be inspired to live passionate lives for their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
