After Church Clean Up

A friendly reminder that we are in need of volunteers every Sabbath to help with clean up and trash removal. We have had a fair amount of food debris left on the floor on the weeks that no one has volunteered. There is a sign up sheet posted near the snack bar area in the rear of the room. Please take a look and pick a day or two that you can help. Let's be good stewards of the blessings God has given us. Thank you!

"My Story" Videos

Some of our most interesting conversations center around personal stories about our faith and our walk with God. The new Common Faith Network Website will feature just such stories from young and old alike. These 2-minute videos (called “My Story”) are filmed right on your own smart phone and answer such questions as:
What’s a favorite Sabbath tradition at your house?
Have you ever been healed? Tell us about it.
What’s your favorite Holy Day?
Have your children ever had poignant or funny concepts about God?
Do you have a testimony of God's goodness and faithfulness?

Contact Jennifer Swenson if you have a story you'd like to tell.

No Food in Classrooms

We have had a problem with food being left on the tables and floors in the nursery and classrooms. Please do not allow your children to take food into those areas. The leftover food is drawing ants.

Volunteers Needed

Many hands make light work!!!
We are very grateful for those who have donated their time and energy to keep the grounds of our church looking beautiful this season. Would you like to be a part of the team next Spring? We could use more people to mow, trim bushes and general maintenance of the yard and landscape.

See Carmen Kincade or Tim Back if interested.

Hearts at Home

It's back!!! Some of you may remember this wonderful Moms conference. Or it may be new to you. Either way, this is your invitation to join us March 15-16 in Bloomington, Illinois for an uplifting, encouraging, God-focused weekend for all Moms. Those going will carpool together and share hotel costs. Cost of the conference is $90 if we get 10 or more. For more information visit www.heartsathome2.org.

Attention All Parents

Parents, please talk with your children about not playing in the new landscaping. The pond and fountain are almost irresistible for children! But the integrity of the structures can be easily damaged. Thanks for your help!

Also, please work with your children to be sure all toys, pillows, food, drinks etc. are cleaned up and put away properly each week. We are blessed to have our own church building -- please help us shine the light of Christ by caring for the building with which He has blessed us.
