Have you been thinking about getting more involved and serving... but don't know where to start?
There are many opportunities to get more involved by serving together! On Sundays, maybe you'd like to sing on the worship team, pray for our pastors and services with our prayer team, or help make coffee for our guests. Maybe you'd rather serve at a specific event, like Upward, Trunk-N-Treat, or Family Fun Night. In any case, our staff would love to connect you in serving at Shawnee Alliance or in the community in a way that uses your gifts, talents and passions! You can start by filling out a volunteer form at shawneealliance.com/volunteer and we will be glad to help you connect with a ministry that fits well!
Another way to get more involved is to join community through our Small Groups Ministry! Visit shawneealliance.com/groups and click Adult Groups, or use the Groups tab on the Church Center app to get started! You can use our Group Types and Filters to find the right group for you! A few of our "Everybody Welcome" Wednesday Night Groups are still meeting (Bible Institute, Grief Share, & Iron Sharpens Iron Men's Group), as well as "Family Life" Middle School Youth Group. "In-Home" and "Sports & Exercise Groups" are a great way to share life together while studying Scripture or playing volleyball! "Serving Groups" like Hands-On Ministry and Our Daily Bread allow you to get to know others while serving together.

Shawnee Alliance is dedicated to developing future pastors and church leaders. We believe that experiencing ministry first-hand in a healthy church environment is vital to the ministry preparation process. The Church Leadership Academy focuses on creating intentional experiences through directed internships. Interns will experience the joys and frustrations of ministry alongside experienced pastors who have launched many into ministry.
Our summer internship runs from June 1-August 10. To learn more or submit an application, please visit shawneealliance.com/leadership-academy by May 15.
Community Cash Grocery Receipts
Save those receipts! The church can redeem your grocery receipts from Chief and Community Markets for community cash!
Proceeds will be used for missions. Just drop them in the gray boxes in the Activity Center or Sanctuary, in the box outside the church office, or bring them in during office hours (Mon-Thurs 9am-4pm).
If you have any questions, please contact Sheila Keller at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bible Reading Plan
Bring transformation to your life by reading your Bible! You will get to know Jesus on a deeper level and learn wisdom for your everyday choices. You can find a free Bible in any of our church lobbies. Please feel free to take one when you're with us at church on Sunday or download the YouVersion app on your phone. Use this simple SOAP format to guide your interaction with God's Word:
- Scripture. Take your time reading each chapter and allow God to speak to you.
- Observation. What do you see God doing in the Scripture? What is God saying to you?
- Application. Ask yourself how you can apply this to your life right now.
- Prayer. Communicate with God and ask Him to help you apply this to your life.
Try it out this week! Add a chapter from Proverbs every day to the below plan. (This list is also posted every Sunday on social media.)
