Mission E4: A little over a year ago Whitney and I returned from a “Mission E4” mission trip to
Haiti. Recently our church decided to add Mission E4 to our list of missions that we support. There is still a great need for sponsors of Haitian children. If anyone is interested in sponsoring a child please give me a call. Randy Butson 507-820-1586 Thanks!
Bible Study Opportunity: Don’t forget about the four-week online Bible Study on the Trinity. This study is designed to take less than 25 minutes per week and is done entirely online. This is a free study offered by the Campaign for Core Christianity but the class is supervised by Pastor Mark. Core Christianity's website is optimized for mobile so it works well not only on your computer but you can easily do the entire study on your smartphone or tablet. To sign up go to edgertonfrc.org.
Name Change: Due to the fact that no one brings a lunch or even coffee to Brown Bag Bible Study Pastor Mark has decided to give it a more fitting name. Every Tuesday join us in the nursery for study of the sermon passages as we "Dwell in the Text".
