As we continue our series on Tough Questions, we consider the question: “Did Jesus really have to die?” There are some progressive leaders today who have stated that His death wasn’t necessary. Their arguments can be persuasive as they seek to package a message that is palatable to the culture. But what is left of the Gospel message when the atonement is removed? How one answers that question is of eternal importance. I look forward to seeing you this Sunday – both in our time of worship and also at the re:CONNECT Breakfast!


Ryan Bowman 
| Lead Pastor

Reminder: No Small Groups will meet this Sunday. Enjoy some pancakes at the re:Connect breakfast in the Gym during the Bible study hour.

ANNOUNCEMENTS
re:CONNECT BREAKFAST
Sunday, June 13, 9:45am | New Location: Gym
It's time to get reconnected! After a year of restrictions, zoom groups, online church, etc., it's important for people to reconnect with one another and learn more about the small groups and ministries offered at Fellowship. It's also a chance to meet all the new faces around Fellowship. Enjoy breakfast inside the Gym while Chris’ Cakes flips pancakes. No reservations are required, and no small group Bible studies will meet this Sunday morning.

PRAYER FOR VBS
Next Week, M-F, 9:30am | Chapel
VBS begins on Monday! Will you join us in prayer for kids to hear the Gospel, their hearts to be open, and the Holy Spirit to move in their lives? A daily prayer team will meet during VBS to pray, led by Pat Londeen. We invite everyone to pray for VBS and, if available, to join this team in-person to pray in the Chapel beginning at 9:30am each day.

BABY BOTTLE DRIVE
This Sunday through June 20
Grab an empty baby bottle in the lobby, take it home, fill it up with loose change, and bring it back to church and all donations will be triple matched to benefit Thrive St Louis! This ministry serves women in the St Louis area who are faced with a crisis pregnancy by providing physical, emotional, and spiritual support for a year!  These baby bottles go a long way in helping Thrive carry out their mission, and no donation is too small! If you would prefer to make a cash or check donation, just mention that in your giving envelope or on a check. Thanks for partnering with us to help support Thrive and serve women and babies in St Louis! Filled bottles can be returned to the Welcome Desk in the lobby.
