Aveleigh's Discovery Class

Sunday morning Sunday School

10:45 a.m. meeting in the Chapel/Conference Room


Weekly adult Bible lessons based on current events The Wired Word is delivered to your email inbox every Thursday. Ask Dr. Van Metre for your weekly copy.

Each weekly installment includes a current event discussion on how scripture relates to those current headlines.

  • In the News, discusses a current event to be analyzed in a biblical context each week.

  • The Big Questions, provide a framework for the discussion. Use them as is or revise to in-clude your own commentary and perspectives.

  • Confronting the News with Scripture, provides the substance of the lesson along with sug-gestions on how group members can apply scripture passages covered that week to their daily lives.

  • Discussion Questions, help you encourage additional in-depth exploration of the topic at hand.

  • Closing prayer, provides a meaningful conclusion to the weeks discussion.

Every Thursday you will receive an email. Even if you do not attend the class, you may use the lessons in your personal devotion; or forward them to friends, family, and acquaintances as an invitation to faith and fellowship. In the last few weeks The Discovery Class has studied:

Aveleigh Missions

Aveleigh is a missional church. We currently give to 18 missionaries or organizations as well as support to Newberry Young Life. Our 2016 non-Young Life Benevolence budget totals $36,211.

 

Each newsletter will highlight and give information on these projects that we support so that we can have a better understanding of the work that is being done in the name of Jesus in Newberry and around the world.

 

In this newsletter we are highlighting the Newberry County Young Life. Our own Lewis Davis had the vision of bringing Young Life to Newberry County. The Young Life doors opened in 1992 and has been serving hundreds of high school students for 24 years. Kids lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them sharing God's love. The area directors are Eddie and Cindy Long. There are currently 11 leaders plus 4 in-training leaders. Young Life meets every Monday night in the Lewis Davis Building on Main Street. In addition, there are in-depth Bible studies and discipleship meetings on Wednesday nights.

We currently give $20,259 to Young Life as well as provide the Lewis Davis Building for them to meet in every Monday.

The Missions Committee is always looking for volunteers who have a heart for these benevolences. If you are interested in being a part of the Missions Committee, contact Elizabeth Adams at 321-0289 or sign up at the Missions Fair on March 13.

 

The Missions Fair was a great success

Manna House

Aveleigh is one of the local churches that provides items for the Manna House of Newberry. This is a local food bank that helps families in need. We collect the items in the basket in the hall between Pastor Mitch's office and the entrance to Truesdell Hall. Items needed at this time are: Canned fruit, powdered milk, peanut butter, jelly, flour, sugar, grits, cereals, and loaves of bread. Some of the staples are needed quite often. We will try to keep you informed as the needs arise. Thank you for helping feed those in need. For more information, you may contact Pay Ehney or Pat Turner.
