Sunday, April 15 & Sunday, April 22 April Connection Classes
Friday, April 20 Secret Church5:30 - 11:30 pm
The Brook will be a simulcast location again this year for Secret Church (a simulcast event led by David Platt, Former President of the International Mission Board and Founder of Radical). Make plans to join us on Friday, April 20 from 5:30 - 11:30 pm for this intense time of Bible study and a time of prayer for our brothers and sisters across the globe who are facing persecution, as well as for those who still have not heard the gospel. This year, the topic of Secret Church is Cults & Counterfeit Gospels. The apostle Paul was astonished that some followers of Christ in his day were “turning to a different gospel,” and he pleaded with them not to be deceived by those who wanted to “distort the gospel of Christ.” These warnings given to the church in the first century are just as relevant today for the church in the twenty-first century. For the good of our souls and for the sake of the church’s mission, followers of Christ need to ask, “What false gospels are being taught today?”

Saturday, April 28 Auto Servic Clinic8:30 am - 1:00 pm
Lot beside O'Reiley's Auto Parts
On Saturday, April 28, we will be providing free auto service for people in need. We will meet at 8 AM in the parking lot beside O’Riley’s Auto Parts on the corner of Highway 72 and Wall Triana. We’ll begin changing oil and doing auto maintenance from 8:30 and finish by 1:00. No special skills or tools are needed, but if you happen to have tools, feel free to bring them. Besides volunteers with car maintenance experience, we also need some ladies to come to meet and talk with the mostly female customers we’ll be serving. Kids and those without car knowledge can help with washing windows, directing traffic and moving supplies from place to place. We’ll have some donuts and coffee there for customers to enjoy while their cars are being serviced. This is a great opportunity to provide something very practical for people in need, as well as to connect with others while serving together. You might just learn some car maintenance skills, too! If you know someone who needs a break due
