Primetimers Ministries

PrimeTimers Sunday Class @ 9:20am in W129/130. The Life of Joseph: From Pit ... to Prison ... to Palace with Pastor Rick Moe.

The Life of Joseph: From Pit... to Prison... to Palace. Joseph was raised in a dysfunctional family, betrayed by his brothers, unfairly accused, and yet Joseph turned out well-balanced, capable, and very successful. How? What did Joseph learn about God and life that allowed him to overcome his background and rise to become "lord of all Egypt" (Genesis 45:9)? Beginning with his birth, we will follow Joseph as he grows up, is thrown into a pit, sent to prison, promoted to the palace, and tests his brothers. One of the great men of God in the Bible, Joseph has many lessons to teach us. Taught by Pastor Rick Moe. This series began on April 26th, and meets on Sundays at 9:20am in room W129/130 for refreshments, singing hymns, and wonderful lessons from God's Word. Come join us.
Visit our Senior Adults webpage at: http://www.goldenhills.org/connect/senior-adults for more info. Trips: We invite anyone and everyone to join us on our trips-whether a PrimeTimer or not. Bring your kids, grandkids, great grandkids, and your friends. As long as they can handle the walking involved, we'd love to have them. Socials: Because of space considerations at our socials, we prefer for those who attend to be "close" to the PrimeTimers ages of 60+. We say "close," because several people in the class are not a PrimeTimers age (yet), so if you're in the ballpark, join us.

Marriage Ministry

You and Me Forever Class meets TODAY @ 10:55am in W248. You can still join us.

You and Me Forever: Marriage In Light of Eternity. Co-authors: Francis & Lisa Chan. Marriage is great, but it's not forever. It's until death do us part. Then come eternal rewards or regrets depending on how we spent our lives. While we cannot allow lesser things to destroy our marriages, we also cannot allow marriage to distract us from greater things. A jealous God asks us to pursue Him first and most. Then life makes sense, and everything falls into its proper place. Love, laughter, and intimacy were all created to be enjoyed. So there is a way to love family deeply without ignoring heaven. It all comes down to our focus. Jesus was right. We have it all backwards. The way to have a great marriage is by not focusing on marriage. Led by Pastor Johnie Moore from 10:55 am to 12:05 pm in W248. The class began on September 20th and will end on November 1st. Please purchase your book & study guide before coming to class by visiting: http://crazy-love-store.myshopify.com/collections/you-and-me-forever-all....

Tuesday PM "Stepping Up" Study & Wednesday PM 2nd Samuel Study. Both @ 7pm in W234/235.

"Stepping Up" Study class description: What's the most courageous thing you've ever done? As men, all of us face decisions in life that demand courage. Big or little, complex or straightforward, these choices--let's call them battles--matter a great deal. One courageous choice leads to another; tomorrow's integrity depends on today's bravery.

Dennis Rainey identifies five stages of a man's journey through life--boyhood, adolescence, manhood, mentor, and patriarch--and examines a man's responsibilities at each step. Rainey calls men to seize the moment and take action, stepping up to responsibility and inspiring others in the process. It's about embracing courage, rejecting passivity, and cowardice. Ultimately, you'll be challenged to be the man on your battlefield. Led by Jeff Gann & William Minyard.

"2 Samuel" Study - depicts David as a true (though imperfect) representative of God. Under David's rule, the Lord caused the nation of Israel to prosper and to defeat its enemies. In Chapter 7, we read of the Lord's promise that David's dynasty would endure forever. The author, though unknown, probably wrote shortly after the division of the kingdom that followed upon the death of Solomon in 930 B.C. Led by Bill Uhlrich & Norm Morell.
