Greetings friends, 

I hope that you and your family are having a great week. I want to ask you to pray for our Student's Ministry this week. They leave Saturday to head on their Winter Retreat, Strength to Stand. We're praying for God to do great things in and through them during this retreat.

I am so excited for Sunday. We're beginning a new series called Ask, Seek, Knock. We'll open up the Scriptures together and look at what the Bible says about prayer and how it truly makes a difference in each of our lives.

Join us for coffee at 10. Worship starts at 10:25. I hope to see you there.


In Christ,

Pastor Jimmy

Service Project
Join us as we help Faith Moecke with her senior project at Chapin High School. She is attempting to impact homelessness. In order to help, we are collecting t-shirts. These can be any color, with whatever printed on them, any size and in decent condition. There is a box in the big room for donating any of the t-shirts you no longer need, as well as a flyer with more information. We will gather on March 9th at 9 am help make blankets, scarves and all-purpose bags for the homeless using the recycled materials.

"Read Through the Bible" With Us
During 2018, we joined together to read through the Bible chronologically. It was such a great experience for so many, that we're going to read through the Bible together again. In 2019, we will use a different plan, called the "Read Through the Bible" Plan on Youversion. There will again be a Google Calendar version that will be available here. In addition, on the last Sunday of each month, a paper copy of the next month's reading will be available. I encourage you to begin this with us. You won't regret it.

Every week, in this space, I will put a link to Sunday's worship setlist for anyone interested. This week's list is available here via Spotify playlist, or here via jimmyparris.com.
