Here’s what’s happening at Exodus…
Exodus Students Community Group
A community group for ExodusStudents meets Mondays from 6:30 to 7:45 at the worship space at 101 South Main in Belmont. This is for 6-12th graders, and includes fellowship, discussion of the week’s sermon, and prayer. If you have a student that is not yet plugged in to the group we would love for them to join us.
If you have questions feel free to call or text Damon Murray at 828-238-7988. Note that the group will meet at the worship space for August; watch here for an updated location in a few weeks.
Exodus Family Back to School Pool Party

We will provide paper products and drinks; everyone else bring food to share—but please, no glass containers! Please RSVP here so we can plan well to accommodate everyone.

If you can help during this upcoming rotation, please email Heather Phillips, or stop by the Iris Room on a Sunday morning to connect with her.
Leadership Summit, September 8
If you currently serve at Exodus, or are looking for a place to plug in to service, Leadership Summit is meant for you. Join us to report, plan and pray. There will be a group for all those who need to find a place of service. At 101 South Main, 6:30 p.m.
Celebrating Five Years!
Exodus will celebrate five years as a church on September 14! There will be one joint service, including both the Belmont and Northlake congregations, at the Great Hall in Mt. Holly. You won’t want to miss this celebration of all that God has done in the past five years!
Night Class, starting September 15
Night class will be starting up again on September 15th, 2014. Both classes will meet on Monday nights from 6:30 to 7:30, and run for 8 weeks. The classes will meet at the Belmont location (101 South Main).
Registration is available now. There is a $25 registration fee, which covers the cost of all materials. There will not be childcare for these classes.
The classes will be:
Bible Doctrine, taught by Bubba Hines: This course will introduce students to systematic theology and twenty doctrines that are core to the Christian faith. In addition to learning about the doctrines, students will actively engage in the work of systematic theologians and time will be invested in discovering what Scripture has to say about each doctrine.
What’s Best Next, taught by Konrad LaPrade and Thomas Griffin: This class is based on the book by Matthew Perman. What’s Best Next is for anyone who wants to live an effective life for the glory of God. The book takes the best practices from various methods of effectiveness and soaks them in the gospel of Jesus to give us a way to effectively manage our responsibilities and roles to the glory of God. If you are young and trying to figure out how to get things done, this class is for you. If you are more mature and have finally hit the wall where the plates aren’t spinning well anymore, this class is also for you.
Next Steps, September 21
If you’ve been attending Exodus for a while, and are interested in possibly pursuing membership, but want to know more, join us for Next Steps on Sunday, September 21 at 5:00 p.m. We will provide more information about the church, as well as answer any questions you might have. If you’d like to come, RSVP here so that we can plan accordingly, and include your need for child care, which will be provided as needed.
If you aren’t already involved in a community group, review the list of days and times and make plans to attend one. Community Groups are important to life at Exodus, providing help and encouragement as well as worship throughout the week as we gather together.
