Friday Fives

1. Preaching Series - Stories. We all have them. We have all heard them. We all learn from them. This Sunday we will begin a new preaching series, Life Lessons from the Prophets. Over the next three weeks we are going to look at the stories of some of our greatest prophets in the Old Testament; Isaiah, Elijah, and Haggai. The stories of these prophets are about people who walked by faith and not by sight. These faithful followers trusted God beyond comfort and beyond mere reason. The lessons that we can learn from them were not only timely for the people they encountered, but timeless for us all these years later. Bring a friend and come join us, as we all learn together!

2. Bible Study - We have began a new study entitled, Delving Deeper: A Journey Through Phillipians. This is a study written by local author and pastor, Charissa Jaeger-Sanders. We are using journaling, sketching, and doodling as a means of connecting with this piece of Scripture as we go verse-by-verse. I encourage you to come and join us in this study that will stretch you, educate you, and enlighten you. All the details and the form to register can be found by clicking here. It is never to late to join and we would love to have you! Invite a friend and I hope to see you all there!

3. Gift Cards - For any of the ladies that are planning to go to Red Lobster with the MODELs this month, here is a way for you to help the church while having a great time with your friends. Consider buying a gift card through our program to pay for your meal. If you buy the $25 gift card, 9% will go to the church, and the card does not expire, so you can use the remaining balance anytime. If you would like to do this, please order the card by Monday, 2/6, so it will arrive in time. If you have any questions you can visit our church website and click on the Gift Card tab or contact the church office.

4. February Newsletters - The February Newsletter is available in the narthex, so please be sure to pick your copy up. There is a correction to one article; the Easter Tableau will be April 5th and 6th. You can also go over to our church website, and view it there as well.

5.Children's Home - In the bulletin this week is an insert asking people to consider volunteering during the Children's Home annual Open House. There are many tasks to do, many days to choose from, and many hands that are needed. Please prayerfully consider any way in which you might be able to reach out and offer your assistance. Also, as we get more details we will begin to plan a trip for us to go this Open House as a church, so we can become more familiar with the wonderful ministry that happens in this place. Thanks!

Have a great weekend and see you Sunday!
