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.

The Faithfully Fit continue to make great progress on their march to better physical, mental, and spiritual health. Some people have already achieved their goals and are now working on maintaining their current level. This week the Thumb Warriors beat out the Temples in all three categories. Altogether the Faithfully Fit has lost 230 pounds and exercised over 50 total days. But more importantly, a huge majority of them consistently meet their Spiritual Goal.

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.
