Dear friends, 

I hope that you are having an excellent week. I'd like to invite you to join us Sunday for worship as we continue The Story. At long last, we'll talk about the Israelites entering the Promised Land. Come enjoy coffee and fellowship at 10:00 am. Worship begins at 10:25 am. It should be a lot of fun. I hope you'll be there.

I'd also like to encourage you to reach out to someone that you haven't seen lately. Let them know that you miss them. Invite them to sit with you this Sunday during worship. You never know what kind of difference you can make for someone.

In Christ,

Pastor Jimmy

Puerto Rico
I told you recently about my conversations with Pastor Miguel Madera in Aibonito, Puerto Rico. In many ways, it still looks like it did when Hurricane Maria made landfall back on September 20th. See some of the pictures here.

They are in desperate need of our help. Pastor Miguel has asked if we can come and help in any way. In response to that, I am taking a small team down from 4/10-4/13. We'll do construction, repair, and chainsaw work. Please pray for the people of Puerto Rico and for the team as we attempt to bring a cup of cold water in the Name of Jesus.

Cody Bates - World Race
Cody Bates is taking part in the World Race 2018. The World Race is an 11 month, 11 country missions journey around the world spreading the Gospel and love of Jesus Christ. He'll be doing all kinds of different ministries such as working with youth in orphanages, doing construction, sidewalk ministry, and working with victims of human trafficking. I'd like you to begin praying for Cody now; before he begins his journey. Please click here for updates, for more information, or to support Cody.

Cody is currently taking orders for a t-shirt he's created to raise money. You can see the shirt here. Standard sizes are $20. Add $2 for 2x or 3x. To order, message Cody here.

Landscaping Team
As spring approaches, it is time to plan for our seasonal landscaping and yard care. We will need help all spring and summer long with grass cutting and weed trimming. If you would be interested in joining the team, please contact Larry Spearman or Angie Lewis or reply to this email.

Join "The Story"
During 2018, we are joining together to read through the Bible. And then on Sundays, I'm bringing messages from the previous week's readings. If you haven't already started, today is a good day to get involved. There are 2 options. Option 1 is the Google Calendar. You can find that calendar by clicking here or email Pastor Jimmy. Option 2 is that you will find the readings for this coming week.

Snack Pack Needs
Thank you all for your continued support of the Snack Pack Ministry through donating items needed and the volunteers that serve in assembling the bags – you are very appreciated! We recently bagged 200 Snack Packs that will cover for the next four weeks as we are giving 46 bags a week. The items we are in need of replacing right now are as follows: Fruit Snacks, Crackers, Oatmeal, Breakfast Bars, Cereal (individual servings) and Rice Krispie Treats. Collection Bins are in the worship room.
