Earthquake Relief: Our RI workers in Turkey are safe and have shelter, food, and water. They are currently staying in a two-bedroom house outside the city with about 30 others from the fellowship there. The believers that are able to are busy distributing blankets, tents, food, water, and other supplies to those in need. The needs are staggering. RI has already begun forwarding relief funds and will continue to do so as funds are received. Please give as the Lord calls you to, earmarking funds for “Turkey & Syria Relief” or visit www.rosedaleinternational.org/relief/.

Ladies!! Mark your calendars for a Ladies Game Day on March 12 from 3-5 pm. Please bring your favorite game and a snack. Drinks will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there.

The Faithfully Fit have reached the mid-point of their challenge. They are making great progress on their goals to reach better physical and spiritual health. On week six they lost another 10 pounds and exercised 113 hours. More importantly, 26 of them reached their spiritual goals for the week. For week six, the Thumb Warriors accomplished more spiritual goals than the Temples but the Temples beat them out on both weight loss and exercise. Keep up the good work!

Have you lost a loved one or know someone who has? GriefShare is beginning a new 13-week series on February 28. This support group will meet here on Tuesday evenings at 5:30 through May. Pick up a flyer on the welcome center and spread the word. Please register with Marie.

BOOKS needed! The library is asking for donations of used books to update the church library. If you have any books that are in good condition and are fairly current to appeal to the congregation, please place them in the box labeled “donations” under the table in the library. They will be accepted until March 31st.

The Thumb Prays is the name of a group desiring to cover our area with prayer. The Goal of The Thumb Prays is to develop a prayer network across the thumb area that will provide a Canopy of prayer that is Unified, Strategic and Sustainable. If you would be interested in being a part of this please see the sheet at the Welcome Center. The idea is to have time slots of 30 minutes or 1 hour on a particular day. Area churches and faith-based organizations will also join in this effort to have each month, every hour of each day covered.

Thank you letters from our Harvest Offering recipients are on the table in the foyer. Please take time to check out their letters of appreciation!

Winter isn't over yet! Book readers, we have another book if you are interested. Please sign up at the welcome desk to get a copy of Praying the Bible by Donald S. Whitney. The discussion meeting date has not been set yet. Contact Dale Ackerman if you have questions.
