The messages the next few weeks from the book of Luke:
· Mar. 9 ~ 7:1-10 “Faith that Amazed Jesus” (Roman Official)
· Mar. 16 ~ 7:11-17 “Entirely Up to God” (A widow & her son)
· Mar. 23 ~ 7:18-35 “Questioning Faith” (John the Baptist)
· Mar. 30 ~ 7:36-50 “Undeserved Salvation” (A sinful Woman)
(A message was added for today so these messages are put ahead one week from what was previously announced!)
All women are invited to Women of Worth tomorrow evening, March 3, at 6:30 pm. Back by popular demand, it is game night. Check with Shelly Simpson to see if there is childcare.
Family Night Chili Feed has been rescheduled for next Sunday, March 9, 6 pm. Claudette Sterk will bring her wonderful gift of music and enthusiasm for the entertainment. Everyone is invited to come and join us for a fun and safe evening. The idea is that if you have children, by having it at 6, you can still get home early since there will be school the next day.
The Christian Education Commission (CE) will be having a meeting after the worship service next Sunday on March 9. CE includes leaders of small groups, the Princess Club, and Sunday School Teachers. Although there is a separate commission for youth, in this time of transition those interested in youth ministries are also invited. A family night and after school children’s program also may be developed. Talk to Pastor Jack if you have questions.
Next Saturday, Mar. 8, there will be a picnic in the Sumas RV Park at 2:00 p.m. Talk to Jim or Melanie Jeffries if you want to help. Our desire is for the folks of the park to be blessed and have an opportunity for neighbors to meet neighbors. The picnic will be cancelled if the weather is bad. Everyone is invited to the picnic!
The supplemental stores of food in the church food pantry are getting low. Any donations of non-perishable canned or dried food is appreciated. Every month several bags are given away to families in the community. Bring your donations to the church anytime and either find someone with a key to the office or leave in the first Sunday School room on the right.
A class on baptism will soon be announced to be taught during the Sunday School hour. A baptism service will also be determined soon. Think about how amazing it is that Jesus Christ himself was baptized! Baptism is an acted symbol of new life in Christ.
The new directory for 2014 is now available. It is a given that there will be mistakes! Nobody is allowed to take anything personal, but understand we do our best to be accurate. Give changes, additions, or corrections to Sally Crouse and we’ll get them in the bulletin.
New people sometimes wonder what to wear on a Sunday morning. A few guys may wear ties because they feel comfortable, but all we really ask is to dress respectfully. Whatever you are comfortable wearing is fine with us.
Let people in the community know that the Clothesline is closing for the season at the end of March! Hurry while it’s open!
Set your clocks ahead next Saturday evening when you go to bed. Daylight Savings time begins March 9!
After the Women’s Ministry Meeting on March 10, the plan is to take a bit of time and write down all the names of those who were in the “Photo of the Century” taken last September for the Centennial Celebration. Future generations won’t have to guess who is who.
