A CLOSER LOOK:

Family Ministry Parent Meeting: Join us today following service. Erik Cave will be sharing about cultural shifts impacting families today. 
Lunch and child care are provided.

Ash Wednesday: Join us on Feb. 10th at 7pm. Ash Wednesday is a service that expresses our mortality and dependence upon the mercy of God in Christ. 
This service ushers us into the season of Lent, a six week time that traditionally has been for the ‘laying aside’ of some actions and behaviors
(areas of indulgence or distraction). This ‘laying aside’ creates space for us to ‘take up’ other spiritually beneficial practices
(scripture readings, prayer, solitude, reading some other classic spiritual work). The third aspect or practice of Lent has traditionally been
increased care of the poor.  We hope you can join us, and make room in your lives for this season. 
We call it a 'holy’ season, for it is a time 'set aside' for God’s good purpose to be realized in the lives of His people.

Volunteer Opportunities: Are you interested in joining our children's ministry team? There are some opportunities now available to get involved. 
We are looking for new members to our nursery team. Like rocking babies and reading stories? Perhaps joining the nursery team is the place for you.
We also are looking for an additional Life Electives teacher for our 1st-3rd grade class. Lastly, consider joining our Kids Worship Team. 
Have storytelling skills? Come and help share the word of God with our kids! Talk to Pastor Sarah about where you are interested in getting involved.  

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.
