Announcements

Missions Festival: 4/16

Missions

This year we are excited to host a Missions Festival. This event is intended for Paramount church to learn and grow in our understanding of other cultures and how to reach them for the Gospel. We will have booths, games, and fun for all ages! Mark your calendar for April 16th, 7-9pm. Speak with your CG Leader for more details.

Ladies Bible Study

Women

We will meet Sunday afternoons at 4pm, at the church building, beginning March 21. We will study the Book of Jude using a video resource by Jackie Hill Perry.

Copies of the book are available at the church resource table. You can also purchase Jude: Contending for the Faith in Today’s Culture from Amazon here or Lifeway.com here.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions! And please encourage the ladies of your CG, and invite others to join us.

ABF

We are excited to resume our first-hour ministry, including Adult Bible Fellowship and Youth Bible Fellowship. We will begin with a 2-week rotation for ABF and YBF attendance, while observing our COVID precautions. We hope the precautions will ease over the next few months, allowing us to resume our usual church-wide ABF/YBF each week. But for now, we will use this 2-week rotation.

 

This alternating schedule will help us plan for children’s ministry attendance, as well as adult/student attendance. As you are comfortable, please attend on your alternating week (A or B). The same ABF lesson will be taught two weeks in a row, so we all track together in discipleship over the coming months.

Community Groups

Community Group

Community Groups meet weekly on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings. Visit our Community Group page to reach out to a leader.

God created us to live in gospel community, under the word and rooted in the person of Jesus Christ. Our focus is to bring glory to Christ, to orient our lives around the gospel, to focus on change, and fulfill our mission as Christ’s ambassadors. To keep a proper balance and guard our Community Groups against revolving around something other than the gospel, we pursue at least four primary goals for life with one another:

1. Progressive Sanctification (Growing Into the Image of Christ)
2. Caring for One Another
3. Biblical Fellowship
4. Stewardship of Spiritual Gifts

CG Questions 4.4

Community Group

1. How does the presence of Christ make a difference in your daily life?
2. In what ways have you neglected the thought or practice of the presence of God in your life? How have you not given His presence the attention it deserves?
3. How could our lives be different and our gladness greater as we treasure his presence more?

Bonus: What can we do each day to treasure the presence of our resurrected King?

Prayers and Praises

175 Days of Prayer: Moroccan Arabs of Morocco

Prayer

Moroccan Arabs of Morocco (muh-RAH-kan) - As coronavirus restrictions on gathering decrease in Morocco and the need for fellowship increases, believers are planning to get together to celebrate their biggest holiday of the year, Resurrection Sunday. The central part of their faith is Jesus and His sacrificial love for them. Ask God to move local authorities to allow these gatherings to happen and to allow all who desire to attend and observe and learn why the believers celebrate these events to do so. For new believers, it will be their first time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. The death of Jesus Himself and His resurrection from the dead are to be recognized and celebrated, as believers who came out of Islam did not believe either of these truths before coming to faith in Jesus. They had claimed that someone else was crucified in His place and that since He didn't die, He couldn't be raised to life again. As believers gather to worship the Risen One, ask for open doors for observation of and participation in giving praise and glory to God. May seekers be drawn to Him through this celebration of selfless love and new life.

175 Days of Prayer: Mongolian Peoples of Outer Mongolia and Russia

Prayer

Mongolian Peoples of Outer Mongolia and Russia (mon-GOHL-yun) - In December, you were asked to pray for an area that would celebrate Christmas for the first time, and now celebrating the resurrection will be another first for those believers! Pray that God will use this celebration to encourage the believers and to bring others to a saving faith in Jesus. Also, please ask Him to raise up a Mongolian team to work with the Mongolian church planter who has been working by herself in this area since November. God has put faithfulness in her heart to travel each Sunday, one hour each way, to share the gospel and to minister, and the Holy Spirit is drawing people to salvation. Pray that the team God forms will be united in vision to see Him plant a healthy, reproducing church in that community.
