Women’s Ministry of Faith Meeting – Thursday, Feb 13th

Attention to All Ladies, junior high and older: Our next Women’s Ministry of Faith Meeting will be held this Thursday, February 13th, at 7:00 pm in DeSoto Hall. Come enjoy refreshments and an evening of fellowship! Our meeting will have a panel of women discussing the topic: “On Being Single.” Does the church value the state of marriage more than the state of singleness? How do we include singles in the life of the church? How do we care for the singles in the church? Please join us as we ask these and other questions of some of our single sisters.

Seniors Paint & Sip – Saturday, Feb 15

SUNSHINE Committee Event in the Dead of WINTER!

Seniors, please join us for another fun-filled event! This Saturday, February 15 from 9:45 to 12:00 in DeSoto Hall, come to our very own Paint and Sip! Enjoy a light brunch and then follow artist Deb Morris as she guides you through painting a winter landscape on a blank canvas. The class is open to all levels of ability. God gave us all the power to create!  Our art instructor guarantees that everyone can be an artist! Men are welcome, too! Reservations required.  Please sign up on the list in the narthex to hold your spot, or see Jane Lewellen or Melinda Gauley.

NEW Photo Directory!

With multiple services and ministries, we know faces but often don’t know names. To that end, we are excited to have an all new photo-directory that will be accessible to you on your cell phone, tablet and computer in a password protected and secure way!

We pray this will be a tool that will enable us to get to know one another and our church better.

In order for this to be a successful endeavor, please submit your personal or family photo to Pastor Gutiérrez, or alternatively, get your photo taken this Sunday or next by one of the friendly Senior High volunteer photographers! Once we have received or taken your photo, we will give you access to the directory!

Note on photos:

  1. Photos can be updated easily at any time.
  2. Please submit photos without hats/sunglasses.
  3. Please keep submitted photos as close up as possible
  4. Only include people in your photo who are listed in your contact information. Thank you!
