October 31st, 2017, marked the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, which began when Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of the church at Wittenberg University in Germany. The Reformation signified a turning point in church history. Many people began to rediscover the gospel for themselves by reading the Bible in their own language and having it preached to them in church. Entire cultures were transformed, cities were greatly impacted, and individuals came to know God more fully as a result of the preaching and teaching of the Reformation. Every Protestant church can trace their beliefs back to the time of the Reformation and beyond. The essential truth is that we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, for the glory of God alone, according to the Bible alone. As we discover these great truths together, our hope is for God to transform us so that we can reach the world with the glorious gospel of God's grace.

Good Sense Budget Class will begin on Sun, 1/14 @, 9:20am in W246.

In this class you will discover what the Bible teaches about finances, how to develop spending plans for the coming year, how much you should save for retirement, and how future social security benefits fit into a long term plan. Learn how to honor God by becoming a Diligent Earner, Generous Giver, Wise Saver, Cautious Debtor & a Prudent Consumer.

Primetimers Ministries

PrimeTimers Sunday Class: 9:20am in W129/130. Join us as we study: "Heaven: What's Next?"

What will heaven be like? Many people imagine it as one long worship service where we will all be gathered around God's throne. We will indeed worship our great God before His throne, but heaven will include many other things, places, and activities. In fact, the Bible gives us a surprising amount of detail about where we will spend eternity, and what it will be like for us. This exciting study is taught by Pastor Rick Moe. For future events call x7124 or visit goldenhills.org/connect/senior-adults.)

Upcoming Events:
1/13--Hymn Sing & Dessert @ 6:30pm, W129/130.

Please bring a dessert to share, and come ready to sing your favorite hymns to the accompaniment of a piano, guitar, bass, and trumpet. No sign-up needed.

This play will be at the El Campanil Theater.

Core Men's Ministry

Men's Wednesday PM Bible Study, 7-8:30pm, in W234/235. Join us as we begin a new study of 1 Thessalonians THIS Wednesday, 12/13.

Although the thrust of this letter is varied, the subject of Eschatology, i.e. The Rapture, Tribulation (7 years), the Second Coming of Christ, and the End Times, seems to be predominant in both of the Thessalonian letters. Every chapter in 1 Thessalonians ends with a reference to the second coming of Christ and may be viewed in some sense as its theme. We would love for you to join us as we venture into the Scriptures to see what the Lord has for us to learn with Him. Bring your male friends & co-workers! FYI: There will be no classes: December 20 & 27, 2017 or January 3, 2018! We will resume on January 10, 2018.
