Memorizing scripture...it has been proven when we store wonderful words in our memory we have a much richer inner life. When God's word is rehearsed, remembered, and repeated often, it's like a stream of joy, peace, and strength that flows and carries your soul along with it. Dana Reiter and Jeannie Gascho are currently listening to verses for the Bible memory program. If you want to get your children involved please contact them.

Koinonia Sunday Next Sunday: Koinonia is the Greek word for Christian fellowship. On March 19th during the Sunday school hour, we will gather around tables in the fellowship room. While there, we will hear testimonies from 4 of our own and sing songs of significance to them before discussing together around tables. Snacks will be provided. Please plan to attend.

The Faithfully Fit continue to make great progress. This week the Warriors lost the most weight by losing 15.2 pounds. They also topped the Temples in Spiritual Goals accomplished with 11. But the Temples once again posted more minutes of exercise. They have moved off the chart and are marching their way to the ceiling in the Fellowship Hall. Keep up the good work!

Spending Plan Survey: At our Annual Celebration, we shared with you a glimpse of some adjustments we are making in how we allocate the contributions we receive along with an invitation to prayerfully consider beginning to give or increasing your giving this year. We are thankful to those who have responded to this call. A survey with additional information and an opportunity for you to share your thoughts has been sent to you. Please return your feedback by March 26th. As always we welcome your questions and thoughts.

Beginning April 16th, the Sunday after Easter, and continuing for 8 weeks, through the 1st Sunday in June, join us for a parenting study from Family Life during Sunday school in the Junior High room. “The Art of Parenting” will cover topics needed to help children gain confident footholds in the journey of life. Do you wonder about discipline? How do you help your children see their importance as followers of Jesus? How do you prepare them to face the world? These are some of the questions we’ll address. So regardless of your stage in parenting, come join us, here’s a chance to grow, in fellowship, joy and faith. Come walk with us.
