We have scheduled a special series of services with Brad Poe for this Spring. Mark your calendars for March 30th – April 2nd, and make plans to be with us (and invite friends and family) as Brad encourages and challenges us.


The February fellowship meal is going to be combined with the fellowship for March.


While Brad is away with the teens, we have the privilege of opening the word together with Dean Miller. Dean is Rob & Nancy’s brother-in-law, and formerly served as the preaching minister with the Hartville church of Christ. We look forward to his lessons this morning and evening!


The teens and chaperones have spent  the weekend at Winterfest in Gatlinburg, TN. They plan to be returning this evening. Please pray for them as they travel home.


We are collecting supplies for the Care Packages for our college students. There is a tub for supplies by Brad’s office in the back hallway. If you have questions or would like to help, see Linda Gooch. Deadline is Feb. 23.


Thank you to all the teachers who spend their time and efforts in this important ministry. We are always looking for more teachers, especially now for Spring Quarter. If you have any interest at all, or have questions about how you can get involved, see Angel Baker, Sally McDiffitt or Darla Yazombek. Even if you’ve never taught, it is a great way to serve, and a very important ministry.


Some define wisdom as the art of living successfully in life.  The wisdom that comes from God, however, is the wisdom we most need.  Wisdom begins with God and one’s faith in Christ as Lord and Savior.

Next week’s lesson by Phil Sanders is, “Be Wise?”  The program can be seen locally every Sunday, 7:30a.m. on WTRF-TV, Ch. 7.
