Starting February 26th on Wednesday nights and continuing for 6 weeks, we will be beginning a new study called “Church Membership 101″ This study will encourage each one of our members to find their biblical identity and responsibility within the church body. I would like to personally invite each one of you to come out on Wednesday nights to learn how we can become a better church member. Also, in March we will be focusing on growing with God in our Sunday morning service, so make sure you plan to be here each and every time the doors are open! Hope to see you there.

Congratulations to Kim Javins!
She is the winner of the February Trivia contest!
First to answer the following question!
The Trivia question for February was: What type of belt did God require Jeremiah to wear before God would reveal how He would ruin the pride of Judah and the great pride of Jerusalem?
The answer was: a linen belt. This is what the LORD said to Me: “Go and buy a linen belt and put it around your waist, but do not let it touch water.” So I bought a belt as the LORD directed, and Put it around my waist. Jeremiah 13:1-2

We have been discussing the need for a Van Ministry in our church. There are so many in our congregation who must walk to church. Rainy and cold temperatures make walking a hardship on these members. Still, there are others in the community who simply are unable to walk , but would love the opportunity to come to church. Our youth must borrow a van/bus for their outings.
We feel the need to push forward with this much needed Ministry! We want your input and/or help in getting this Ministry off the ground! If you would like to be involved in the Van Ministry or have any suggestions, there is a “Van Ministry” box in the corridor outside the Sanctuary. Simply fill out the card showing where you want to help or write a suggestion and drop it in the box! Pray about this. . . ask God if there is an area in this Ministry in which you can be used to serve Him.
March 7-9: Youth Retreat 2014! Teens who are attending need to be at the church by 4pm! We will pack up the van and be on our way!
