Exploring Connection

Tues., Jan 23, 6:30-8p, Fellowship Hall

Belonging. Community. Connection. Is it even possible? Finding a supportive group of friends sounds terrific. But it’s not always that simple, is it? Different schedules, not enough groups, and other roadblocks keep us from actually getting connected. You are invited to an Exploring Connections event on Tuesday, January 23, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. Enjoy dessert and an energizing time of learning more about Explore Groups — a simple, nonthreatening way to “test drive” a group, with people you already know or that are already coming to Berean but just aren’t connected yet. There will be opportunities for mixed groups as well as all men or all women groups. To help with our planning, please fill out a Connect Card (in the pocket in front of you) and bring it to the foyer table to sign up. Are you ready to grow as a believer? Take a step of faith and join us for 90 minutes that could open the door to a whole new way to grow closer to Jesus!



Cleaning Out the Mailboxes and Lost-and-Found

Mon. 1/22

Have you checked your mail lately? In the alcove in the foyer, between the coatrack and restrooms, we have mail folders for everyone to use, sorted by first letter of your last name, along with a couple cubbies for lost-and-found. To make sure we have room in the lost-and-found, we will be thinning out unclaimed items on Monday, January 22. So before then, please stop by to pick up any items that belong to you! Items remaining on the 22nd will be donated to charity or discarded.



Women’s Game Night

Sat. 1/20, 6-9 p.m., Fellowship Hall

Are you looking to connect with other women in a fun and relaxing environment? Join us for an evening of playing games, catching up with each other, and meeting new people. Bring a snack to share if you want or some games you like to play. Any questions please contact Aleyse Schultz.



Debt Is Normal. Be Weird.

Sun. 1/28–4/1, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Fellowship Hall

What if you knew where all of your money was going each month? What if you were debt-free, investing, and making wise spending decisions? With Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University class, you CAN take control of your money and start planning for your future. If you’re interested in learning more about the class, contact Emmalee Burke, or leave a message with the office at 308-532-7448. Because we’re offering it HERE just for you.

Your willingness to be a part of this effort is deeply appreciated.
