This Wednesday's Table Talk Program
For our Table Talk this week, Larry and Caryl Mobley will present Israel Up-Close.
We would love to have you participate in one of our 9:30 am classes. The Special Topics class meets in Room 206 and is studying “Living in Christ’s Presence” by Dallas Willard and John Ortberg. The Trinity Class meets in Room 210 and will feature a recap of Larry & Caryl Mobley’s recent trip to Israel. The Conversation meets in Room 208 and is discussing “Our Role in the Kingdom of God.”
Tune in Monday morning, March 27th, from 10:00 – 11:00 on WHKP 1450 AM/107.7 FM for Beyond Words Radio. Topic – Fleeing Isis, Finding Jesus with Charles Morris. The average person hears bits and pieces about the horrors surrounding ISIS, and the miraculous turning of many Muslims to faith in Christ in part because of ISIS. Charles Morris puts many of the pieces together to give us a clearer picture. Morris is speaker and president of Haven Ministries, and has served as a broadcast news reporter, editor, and bureau chief for United Press International. He combines his skills and experiences from numerous trips to the Middle East to bring this picture to life.

Missionary Prayer Request
John Hanna, with IVCF – USA/NC, SC, now oversees 26 campuses with 35 staff across North and South Carolina. He has had the task of training almost all the staff because they were new to IVCF in these schools. He has also seen a goal realized with the establishment of two new chapters at UNC-Pembroke, and The College of Charleston. Like Doug Flaherty, John came away from the National Staff Conference with renewed focus and several prayer topics. He asks for prayer for UNC-Pembroke’s new chapter as they grow, for an increase of staff, and an outpouring of God’s power on each chapter.
