“So spend some time with kids. Watch them. They will teach us to wonder, to savor. God tells us to have child-like faith. So might as well get ready: heaven will be full of 5 year olds!” Sara Walker

There are still a couple of opportunities to share the teaching responsibilities with another couple in our Sunday school. A couple (2 people) is needed in the Y3’s class to be a rotating second team, one more person to complete a team for 2 year olds, and one more person to complete a first grade team. We are so close…… and it can happen with your help. Please contact if you can serve.

Sign ups for new Connect 4 fellowship groups begin Sunday.
Connect 4 Groups offer a number of ways for Brentwood Hills members to connect with other members. The focus of our groups will be in the following areas of fellowship:
• FAITH-building each other up spiritually
• FOOD-sharing a meal together
• FUN!!-getting to know each other
• FREEDOM-enjoying our religious freedoms
Connect 4 groups (generally 15-20 people) meet once per month between October and May. Your group can decide where and when to meet, and you can chose your group preference based on options such as families with children, families without children, discussion groups or no preference. Each group will be directed by the Connect 4 leader and offer monthly meeting options to be decided on by the group.
Don’t miss out on another great opportunity to connect with new people as we grow together in the Lord!
