Grief Support Group

March 17th


During Sunday School hour on 3rd Sundays, a Grief Support Group will meet in Wesley Hall. ANYone is welcome, and this is a group that will grow and shrink according to individuals’ needs. We will address issues common to ANY kind of grief (not just death or illness).

Children's Tryouts

March 17th


Kids Under Construction Easter Play auditions immediately following service Sunday, March 17th. We should be 30 - 45 minutes. A snack will be provided.


This is for a simple skit that the children will present during the Easter season. We will have practice every Sunday after church for about 30-45 minutes.

Ignite Fifth Sunday Missions

March 31st


The Ignite contemporary service uses 5th Sundays for mission work in the community. ANYone is welcome to join them for this way of taking the love of Jesus beyond the walls of the church. Join them Sunday, March 31, at 10 a.m. in the chapel for communion and then work assignments.

Join other couples at the church for an introductory video, then leave the kids in the church child care and go on a date!  Led by Reace & Eric Smith, this fun relationship builder has no attendance requirements and only has homework if you want to purchase (and read) the book!

 

Pick up a flyer in the foyer today. Be ready to start on Saturday, April 6.

Communication!

People need to know how God is moving in our church. We need help communicating that.

Make sure you “like” the church’s Facebook page.  Learn how to “share” the good news posted on that page to your page.


Invite people to get involved with small groups in the church: Tuesday night Life Groups, Sunday School classes, etc.

How to Dress for Church

Friends, it’s that time of year when we guess about the weather. We tried to turn the heat on for the sanctuary building, and the water refused to heat up.

 

So? Dress in layers. Be prepared for shifting temperatures in our buildings in case we guess wrong and/or the machinery doesn’t want to function.
