A Closer Look:

Chili Cook-off: We would like to invite you next Sunday January 10th to stay with us after service as we partake in our 5th annual Chili Cook-off.  Don’t let the title frighten you. If you don’t want to enter the contest do not feel like you have to. We would ask that you bring your favorite pot of Chili to share with our church family either way.  If you have any questions on what else you can bring please contact Sylvia Groce at: 503-320-6026 or sylviagroce1@gmail.com.

Cold Weather Gear: We would like to remind you that we are still collecting cold weather items. This month we will be collecting new or gently used coats.

MUD: Please pray for our High School Students that they will  continue to grow their relationship with God as well as the relationship with their peers that will be on the trip. 

Family Ministry Parent Meeting:  Join us January 31st for our next Family Ministry Parent Meeting.  Erik Cave will be sharing about cultural shifts impacting families today.  Lunch and child care are provided.

Welcome to the Freak Show: Save the date of March 6th for the next all church talent show.  This is a great night to be together as a church family.  Sign ups to perform will take place in February so start thinking about a talent to share.

Mission to Mexico 2016: Our next Mission to Mexico is July 31st-August 6th 2016.  Information and application packets are available in the lobby under the TV.  If you have any questions contact Erik Cave.
