Our Pastors Class will meet at 9:30AM in Pastor Jim’s office.

Our breakfast and lesson for children will be held at 9:30AM in Fellowship Hall.

Worship and Wonder will meet at 10:45AM, and the story will be Jesus and the children.

Looking Ahead

Lent: “Do You Believe in Miracles?

Our Lenten Theme will be “Do You Believe in Miracles?” which will be based on the miracles of Jesus in the Gospel of John plus insights from the video series “Grave Robber.” Two short term small groups around that theme will be held – one on Wednesdays at 7PM and one on Sundays at 9:30AM. The Wednesday group will begin on March 4 and the Sunday group will begin on March 15.
