Today we are receiving an offering for our friends in Haiti and our sister United Brethren churches affected by the recent earthquake. You are invited to mark a gift and place it in the offering boxes in the lobbies or text keyword Haiti to (717) 401-7777. Our UB denomination has sent a collective gift for emergency relief. King Street Church will match your gift today, and the funds will be used for long-term rebuilding over the next 1-2 years.
GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. The fall session just began last Monday; you can start anytime. They meet on Monday nights at 7:00 pm in the Choir Room (M7). If you are interested in attending, register online HERE or contact Molly Shull.
Tuesday Morning Ladies’ Bible Study
Ladies, you’re invited to a new Bible study on Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai, and Zechariah! Join us as we learn how God gave hope to His people in the midst of brokenness, just as we need this message of hope today. We will gather on Tuesday, September 21, at 10 a.m. in the Student Ministry Center for a Meet and Greet and to receive the first lesson. The study will begin on Tuesday, September 28 at 10 a.m. Register online HERE.
If you would like to come earlier from 9- 10 a.m. in the Student Ministry Center, you can join other ladies in an exercise class. We use exercise bands, balls, and mats that are available at the church. Contact Molly with any questions.
New Men’s Study
The Band of Brothers men’s ministry invites you to join their new fall study on Ephesians on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm in room M27/29. Ephesians is a survival manual—it equips believers to thrive in a world that hates the message of Jesus Christ. In these sessions, J.D. Greear digs into the text of Ephesians verse-by-verse and challenges believers to live out the Gospel. Learn more HERE.
