MEN’S FALL TRAINING TABLES
The fall Men’s Training Table is a 7 week Bible study in the book of James. We use a simple Bible study format that looks like this: Pray, Dig in, Dig deeper, Do it and support each other. Since we’re going through James, I want this to really focus hard on the “Do it” part! If we’re not applying the Word, don’t bother to study it! If you have any questions feel free to contact Pastor Patrick at 612.200.3409. Study options: Wednesdays – lunch zoom at noon (Sept 30), Sunday morning – 8:45am in the Connection Center (Oct. 4), Thursday morning – 6:45am at Rebecca’s Cafe (Sept. 29), Thursday evenings from 7pm @ Becker Chiropractic Health Center (Oct. 1). Choose the option that works best for you and sign up HERE.

MINISTRY VENUES DURING COVID19
The church thrives on God’s People getting together! We love worship services, pot-lucks, Sunday School classes, small groups, break out sessions, mentoring, and just getting together for coffee or to play. During the Stay At Home order, all of those things are different. I believe we should follow the Governors requests and do what we can to navigate the COVID19 virus well together. https://mn.gov/governor/covid-19/faq.jsp
As we do our best to stay safe, please remember the Most Important Things:
•    You are not alone. God is with you and you are in Christ. Intentionally increase your time in prayer and reading the Word.
•    The Church is the living Body of Christ. Each one of us has an important, unique role to play, even right now. Use your spiritual gifts https://www.beckerfreechurch.org/resources/spiritual-gifts-assessment/ and find ways to work together.
•    Love One Another. Right now, that might mean calling the people you normally see. Comment sections under FB posts are less effective. Any kind of real-time communication is way better, especially if we can see each other’s faces. (Phone calls, video calls, etc).
•    Serve Each Other. We are calling everyone in the directory every week and have already been matching needs with people who can help. If you’re going to the grocery store, see if you can pick up items for others who might need to stay home. You may even be able to taking your family to someone’s house too do some early Spring yard work!
•    Love Your Neighbor. Make the effort to be the neighbor who reaches out. Check in on them. Don’t assume they’re ok. Just asking how they’re doing (from a distance!) or offering to buy a few groceries or pick up their lawn can mean alot. My neighbor is borrowing my truck today to take my stuff and theirs to the refuse dump. Help each other out. Do Good Deeds that Build Good Will and lead to Sharing Good News!
•    Check in with your Leaders. Ask your small group leader what the plan is for now. Check in with your children’s SS teachers and group leaders. They’d love to hear from you! Some groups are using Zoom to see each other while we’re at home.
