Urgent Prayer Request

Posted: February 27, 2012 in news


Alex & Meredith ask that we pray for a mission couple in Kyrgyzstan that they help support.  They recently learned that their newborn has a serious heart defect that will be fatal if not corrected in the next month.  They have been able to travel thousands of miles to Kiev Ukraine to the nearest pediatric cardiac surgeon.  Also, they have received the necessary funds for surgery and could have surgery anytime.  Please  pray for baby Mark, peace for the family, and the medical staff caring for him.

Big game on Saturday!  Any projections?  Anyone want to give someone a hard time?  Will Mizzou pull off the season sweep, or will KU get revenge?  Will this be the last regular season game between these two hated foes?  Will this be an epic battle on the hardwood?  Will there be the famous “rock-chalk-jayhawk-ku” chant on Saturday, or will Mizzou silence the fans at Phog-Allen?  What say you?




Sunday Lesson

Posted: February 24, 2012 in Upcoming lessons


Sunday Mark continues his series through 1 John, as will we in class.  Read 1 John 2:3-11, and we will discuss/answer the following question:  “How Do I Know I Am A Christian?”

This is a great question for us to be able to answer.  Looking forward to a great day of worship, hearing the Word preached, and some good discussion/Bible study in class.

See you Sunday!


Ephesians 2

Posted: February 8, 2012 in news, Upcoming lessons


The multi-talented Eric Barb will be teaching Sunday from Ephesians 2.  So read Ephesians 2:1-13 and you will be blessed.  Great passage of Scripture.

Eric can sing, play the guitar, and I hear he has some mean dance moves—-no telling what is gonna happen Sunday morning!

Drew Witvoet, can you handle announcements and prayer requests?  I usually start with announcements at 10:30, prayer requests to follow and then we usually begin the lesson at 11:00 when the choir peeps arrive—-thanks!

Oh, and Sunday you all will observe the Lord’s Supper.  So it will be a great day!


Upward Schedule

Posted: February 8, 2012 in news


Here is the line-up for sharing testimonies @ Upward on Saturday:

8:30——————Tami Burgard

9:30——————Ryan Bandermann

10:30—————-Jason Bandermann

11:30—————–Josh Burgard



2:30—————–Kendra Odom

We still need two peeps for 12:30 and 1:30….please post a comment if you are willing to do one then.  Remember that you will share at halftime of each of three successive games.  The games are staggered, so here is an example:  First games start at 8:30/8:45/9:00—-so Tammi will share at halftime of the 8:30/8:45/9:00 games.  Ryan will then follow for the 9:30/9:45/10:00 games.  I believe you will start on the court closest to the doors as you come in.  Find Kenn as soon as you get there.  Hope that makes sense.



Sunday Lesson

Posted: February 2, 2012 in news, Upcoming lessons


Sunday Mark begins a new series on 1 John and with that, we are going to try something new.  I don’t think we have ever done something in class that tied so closely with a sermon series….so this will be something new and fresh.

Mark is going to send me his sermon outline on Thursdays and I will build a lesson from that.  Having a lesson that will piggy-back on the sermon should give us a good opportunity to discuss things and possibly dig in a bit deeper.  Another great reason to be in the first service, and now we will be able to see who is paying attention to the sermons!

Looking forward to it.
