Jill Sauer, First Church of the Nazarene, 4811 Broadway, Great Bend, announces the following events at the church. Pastors are Josh and Amy Foster.
The children’s ministry, Naz Kidz, will host a fishing tournament, complete with prizes, this Saturday, Aug. 24. Sign-up for children in grades K-8 starts at 9 a.m. sharp. Hamburgers and hotdogs will be served for lunch. Call 792-5000 for more information.
For teens, the church will host a fifth quarter after the football game on Friday, Sept. 13. It will be open from 10 p.m. to midnight and there will be food, games and prizes.
Pastor Josh Foster will lead a men’s camping trip in the mountains of Colorado during the Labor Day weekend. Campfires and hiking just might be the perfect way to re-connect with God.
Ladies don’t need to feel left out, because the church will sponsor a Ladies’ Mystery Trip in September. The church also offers a weekly Bible study for women.
Small groups are getting ready to start in September and are a great way to meet new friends – folks caring about each other and seeking God together. They meet in homes around Barton County and will study the book “Not a Fan” by Kyle Idleman. This study challenges believers to grow from “just a fan” of Jesus Christ to a fully committed follower.
If you lean toward the dramatic, the church has an annual drama coming up in October called “Judgement House.” This is a huge effort and draws on people with all different skill sets, from make-up and costumes to registration and security. The walk-through presentation about the truth of choices and their consequences, both in this life and the next, will be shown Oct. 25-27.
Regularly scheduled church services are at 10:30 on Sunday mornings, and First Church of the Nazarene has several other ministries, such as the Marriage Oneness class.
“These are some of the ways our ‘family’ is seeking God and His direction in our lives, and we’d love to include you,” Sauer said.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope.”
