FAITH & REASONING 101
When: Monday, March 11, 2013, 7:00 PM-8:30 PM
Where: RBC, Room 238
Topic: “The Case for Easter”
Of all the major religions in the world, only one claims that its founder returned from the grave. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the very cornerstone of Christianity. However, skeptics claim Jesus’ resurrection is a superstitious myth. But is that really where the evidence points? Come join us on Monday, March 11th, as we will examine the evidence for the resurrection and “The Case For Easter”.

EXEMPLARY HUSBAND CLASS
When: Wednesday, March 13, 2013 * NEW START DATE
Where: Room 250A
RSVP: James Roberts at 703-309-0303
The home is the most important area of ministry for husbands. It can also be the most difficult, and it is often the most neglected. The characteristics of a Christian husband do not come naturally, nor are they taught in school. We need help.
So, come out and join other men weekly on Wednesday evenings as we explore how to become an Exemplary Husband. It will be a time of encouragement and our basis for the study will be The Exemplary Husband by Stuart Scott and with reviews like “If I wrote a book on being a godly husband this would be it” (from John MacArthur), there is sure to be something for all men in the study.
Upcoming activities are scheduled in April and beyond – mark your calendars.
DADS & DONUTS
When: April 20, 2013, 8:30-11:30 AM
Where: RBC Clubhouse
While the women are at retreat, Jason Goetz will direct the Annual Dads and Donuts event on Saturday, April 20, 8:30-11:30. It will be a low key event that includes breakfast, a short family devotional/skit, activities similar to AWANA games, board games, and crafts. Childcare will be provided for infants/toddlers in the Nursery if Dads have multiple children
SACRED RELATIONSHIP WEEKEND
When: May 2-4, 2013
Where: RBC Sanctuary
Speaker: Gary Thomas
Sacred Search – May 2 – Singles
Join us as Gary Thomas explores love, dating, and how to find a spectacular marital match in his new book, The Sacred Search.
Sacred Marriage – May 3-4-Engaged/Married Couples
What if God designed marriage to make us holy instead of happy? Scores of books have been written that offer guidance for building the marriage of your dreams. Yet, what if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy…but holy? And, what if your relationship isn’t as much about you and your spouse as it is about you and God?
Based on Gary’s bestselling book, the Sacred Marriage seminar helps couples uncover how marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God and each other. Learn more about Gary at www.garythomas.com. Further information and website registration will be available soon.
