Did you know that the books of I Timothy, II Timothy and Titus are known as the Pastoral Epistles? Did you also know that they have fallen out of favor as sermon texts in the modern church? In them, the Apostle Paul issues humbling challenges concerning Christian living, doctrine and leadership that are thought to make present-day hearers uncomfortable.
If you are ready to be challenged toward your sanctification, join Pastor Barron this Wednesday evening at The Woodlands Orchid Room, 7:00 p.m., for a study on I Timothy following a time of prayer for the congregation.

Dorcas Ministry Makes First Contribution To The North Greenville Crisis Ministry
Our Dorcas Ministry ladies have completed their first project to demonstrate Christ’s love to our community and missionaries both here and abroad. This Tuesday the women of NGC delivered a full shopping cart of critical-need goods to the North Greenville Crisis Ministry donated by members of the church.“The North Greenville Food Crisis Ministry is an organization that provides food, clothing, and crisis utility assistance to individuals facing crisis situations. These individuals must live within our boundaries and provide picture identification and proof of residence. Our goal is to provide assistance along with the tools needed to regain self-sufficiency. Our mission is to offer short-term, temporary assistance, hope and love, built on a foundation of faith, to residents of Northern Greenville county when faced with a crisis situation.”

Pastor Barron returns to our pulpit this Sunday.
Sunday School: We are studying the Gospel of Matthew, Chapters 13-28, titled, “…He has risen, as He said.” Our lesson for Sunday is “The Shepherd And His Sheep,” from Matthew 18: 10–35. This covers Jesus’ exhorting believers to care for one another like little children, each with a value as worth one lost sheep among ninety-nine. For additional background reading, look at Psalms 60-65.
Maundy Thursday: Greenville ARP Church will have a Maundy Thursday Communion Service on Thursday, April 13, at 6:30pm, in the Sanctuary. We have been invited to join them for communion and have a solemn remembrance of the events leading up to and immediately following the crucifixion of our Lord.
