Super Saturday - Engage with God:
Living a lifestyle that includes a enjoyable, two-way, heart connection with Father God is what Jesus died for, yet it is not the life that most Christians experience. Confidently having conversation with God and overcoming hindrances to intimacy with Him is our inheritance as His children, and it’s more accessible than we often think. Join us on Super Saturday, not just for more information, but to receive tools to engage directly with our Father and receive His heart for us. You can sign up at: tinyurl.com/AntiochSS
When: Saturday, October 23 // 8:30am - 5:30pm
Where: Antioch Waltham // 17 Spruce Street, Waltham

On October 31st, instead of our regularly scheduled celebration service, we will be joining together with Highrock Church and Pilgrim Church to participate in Serve Sunday. There will be multiple opportunities to be the hands and feet of Jesus around Beverly! Stay tuned for signups!
Recently we announced our Lifegroup offerings for the fall of 2021! If you are interested in joining a lifegroup, have a question for one of the leaders, or want to know more information, please visit the Lifegroups page on our website!
The past couple of weeks, Brian has been encouraging us to start or join a discipleship group. A discipleship group is 2-4 people who gather regularly to talk about their life of faith and process their relationship with Jesus. Read the Bible during the week, then meet up and ask these questions:
1. What emotions are you feeling?
2. What is God saying to you?
3. How are you going to respond?
Homes and Support for Afghan Refugees:
There is a group in Ipswich that is doing work with refugees in our area and some of the folks who are coming from Afghanistan will likely be settled in the area soon. We expect Afghan refugees to arrive as soon as living places are available for them. Those who have only temporary visas need to live with an American family until they are granted asylum status. This will take about 3 months. After that they will be able to rent an apartment. You can specify how large a family you can take, from 1-10 or so. There will be cross cultural training to help. If you cannot do that but want to help, supermarket gift cards and Charlie cards are needed. Also backpacks for school for the children, and warm jackets. If you can help, please email email@example.com for contact information.
Sunday Morning Service Opportunities:
In recent weeks, Brian has been talking about the five rhythms of church: one-on-one connection with Jesus, family worship, community groups, Sunday morning ministry, and connection with our neighbors. Below we are highlighting the different ways you can serve on Sunday morning. Feel free to reach out to the following leaders if you are interested in a specific area!
