On Saturday, January 20 from 9:00am-5:00pm, we'll be hosting an Effective Compassion training day, the aim of which is to equip Christian communities with a set of principles and strategies to help them minister to the poor and others in need. The training day will be led by Ismael Hernandez, Founder and Executive Director of the Freedom & Virtue Institute, and our very own Marvin Olasky. For more info and to sign up, click HERE; there's a link for signing up at the bottom of the page. If you previously signed up for the training, please confirm your attendance by emailing Aaron Wedemeyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NEW MEMBER VOWS & MAKEUP CLASS
Those who have gone through the recent membership class and interviewed with an Elder will have the option to stand before the congregation and take new member vows at our Sunday worship service on February 11, 2018. For anyone who was interested and unable to attend our recent membership class, we will have a very condensed makeup class on Saturday, January 27 from 9am-11:30am at Brentwood Bible Church. Childcare will not be provided, but we can reimburse for babysitter expenses if that is a need. If you are interested in attending this makeup class, please email email@example.com.
Please save the date for our 2018 women's retreat on Saturday, April 28 through Sunday, April 29. This year's retreat will take place at Summers Mill in Belton, Texas (less than 1 hour drive from Austin). If you have any interest in helping out with the retreat, please reach out to this year's retreat chairs, Caroline Page (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Margaret Williams (email@example.com).
