Apison Announcements! - Bulletin, Upcoming Events & Reminders

April 5, 2024

Weekend Update

Dear Church Family,

Can you believe it is already April?!

We are so blessed to have the school that we do. I am so grateful for the LCA staff and students who make it such a beautiful place. Pastor Ryan is teaching a Spanish class and I had so much fun joining in!
I also am excited about plans we have to engage our youth in both church and school. See this picture meeting with Tyler Segarra, Youth and Children Team Leader, Christianna Similey, 6-8 grade teacher, and Pastor Ryan having a planning lunch together. 
I want to introduce something that you will be hearing more about this year: LookUp Chattanooga. That is the name being given to a multi-church evangelistic effort across the Chattanooga area. Together we will put on an apologetics series of meetings Aug. 21-25 and an Archaeology series of meetings Sep. 11-15. The meetings will be held at the Residence Inn. These will be a fantastic opportunity to invite a friend. Check out this newsletter if you are interested in some evangelistic training to get ready for the event.
All this is a prelude to an evangelistic series we will host at our own church beginning on Oct. 4.
