7. On Sunday, we begin "When Relationships Collide," in our Small Groups. "In relationships, if we aren't honest with each other, if we aren't dealing with the conflict that is there, it causes hidden pain," says Ron Edmondson, one of the writers of the curriculum. Sunday's lesson will be "Even Christians Collide." If you aren't in a Small Group, pick up a Small Group guide or visit Merle Woolley in the Worship Center foyer for more information.

8. The next Young at Heart is Oct. 17, 11:30 a.m., in the Ridgecrest Room. If you are 55+, join us! Questions? Contact Julie Hinton at 417.887.2317 or jhinton@ridgecrestbaptist.org.
