Throughout the month of January we will be studying “Snowed Inn.” During this wintry series, kids will learn about the promises God made through stories in the Bible. They will see that God is not just a promise maker, but a promise keeper!
Join us WEDNESDAYS at 4:30 in the FELLOWSHIP HALL.
Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the season of Lent – a time when we prepare for Easter by observing a time of fasting, repentance, and spiritual discipline.
The Ash Wednesday Service helps us to realize the full meaning of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We will receive crosses from ashes on our foreheads as a sign of our sorrow and repentance of our sins.
Join us for our Ash Wednesday Service in the Sanctuary at 7 p.m., Wednesday, February 14, 2018, with Pastor Dale officiating.
A meal will be served at 5 p.m., Thursday, February 15th, in the Family Life Center. Our doors will be open to serve our community.

Come Join the UMW Book Club on February 20th at 6:30 PM in the church library. We will explore A House In The Sky by Amanda Lindhout and Sara Corbett. This book was an Amazon Book of the month in September 2013. The common remark in most of the reviews was, “Once I started reading this book I could not put it down”. Hopefully you will enjoy the true story of how a young girl’s desire to explore the world led her to being kidnapped in Somalia. As the story is told about the horrible torture she endured you will be amazed at how she searched for forgiveness not only for her captors but also for herself. This is a very intriguing story that will make you think about the courage that this young lady possessed as well as make some wonder about the risk taking that resulted in her being captured. It’s also a study of the part that all religious extremism plays in wars and atrocities.
There will be a bible study for women beginning Tuesday, February 6th at 10:00 AM, in the Fellowship Hall, facilitated by Wendy Thurman.
There will be an evening bible study for women beginning Wednesday, January 31st at 6:00 PM, in the Library, facilitated by Susan Maddux. Join us for an in-depth and very personal examination of this great story of threat and deliverance. If you’ve ever felt inadequate, threatened, or pushed into situations that seemed overpowering, this is the study for you. Just as it was tough in Esther’s day, it is tough today. The Old Testament story of Esther is a profile in courage and contains many modern parallels for today’s overloaded and stressed woman. Esther, while a queen, lived as an outsider in a hostile environment. Women will learn strong lessons of faith, providence, and hope to equip them to live courageously “for such a time as this.”
