Once again this year our church has been chosen to host the Lenten Luncheons. We will be in need of volunteers to come in on Wednesday evenings at 6:45 to get the tables and chairs set up. This doesn’t take very long to do, and the more help we have the faster it goes.
We will be looking for you beginning Wednesday, February 6. Luncheons begin on the 7th. See below for the schedule topics.

Book of Matthew Bible Study
Pastor John is leading a Bible study on Wednesday afternoons at 2 p.m. This small group study is held at the Meadowside Apartments on Himrod Road next to the American Legion, in the community room. The Gospel according to Matthew tells the good news that Jesus is the promised Savior, the one through whom God fulfilled the promises he made to his people in the Old Testament. The Gospel presents Jesus as the great Teacher, who has the authority to interpret the Law of God, and who teaches about the Kingdom of God. Consider joining this group, all you need to bring is your Bible!
What a wonderful, caring church
family! We were so taken by
the outpouring of love at the
baby shower in January.
Thank you so much!

Cookie Project for Shut Ins
Once again this year the Youth Group will be collecting round oatmeal containers. The plan is to decorate the containers, make LOTS of oatmeal cookies (under the direction of Barbara Burke and Cindy Ovens) and deliver them to our shut ins. Donations of containers can be left upstairs in Barbara Burke’s room #200.
