Pastor Barron continues his series tonight at 7:00 at the Woodlands in the Orchid Room.
Petition For Release Of Missionary Andrew Brunson
Former ARPC missionary Andrew Brunson has now been wrongly detained 136 days in a Turkish prison on a charge of espionage. Efforts by President Trump and members of the U.S. House and Senate asking the Turkish president for Andrew’s prompt release have not been successful. The ARPC has a goal of attaining 100,000 signatures for the White House petition calling for Andrew’s release. If you have not already signed, please do so and share this link with others: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/forgotten-american-turkey or https://tiny.cc/andrew3.
The text of the petition is:
“American Pastor Andrew Brunson has languished in prison in Turkey since October 2016, falsely charged with “membership in an armed terrorist organization” despite the Turkish authorities having no evidence against him. Pastor Andrew is a U.S. citizen from North Carolina who (with his family) has lived peacefully in Turkey since 1993.
We urge the President of the United States to request that Turkish President Erdoğan order Andrew’s immediate release and return to the United States.”

Sunday School: We are continuing with the Winter 2016-2017 Adult Quarterly, “The Power Of The Gospel,” on Paul’s epistles to the Galatians and Romans. Dr. Ross’ lesson for Sunday is titled, “Welcome One Another In Christ.” Our focal passage is Romans 15: 1-21. Paul teaches that in Christ we are in union with believers near and far; we should join with them in reaching out to others. Additional suggested reading is all of Romans 15 and 16.
Next week, we begin a new quarter with a study of the Gospel of Matthew, Chapters 13-28.
