We are collecting small personal items and snacks to send to those of our church family who are in college or serving in the military.  If you would like to add some item(s), please bring them by next Sunday evening, Feb. 24, and put them  in the box on the table in the hallway across from Everett’s office.


Several of our teens, Brad and a few adult chaperones have been in Gatlinburg, TN, this weekend participating in “Winterfest,” a large gathering of youth primarily from the eastern part of our country.  They are planning to return home sometime this evening.  Let’s pray that they will have a safe trip back home.


All of our shepherds, deacons and preachers will meet for their bi-monthly meeting next Sunday at 4:30 p.m. in the MP Room to pray for and to discuss the work of our church family.


There are several books on the table across from Everett’s office which are available to anyone who would like to take any or all of them.

There is also a single-pedestal TV stand under the coat rack in the hallway for anyone who would like to have it.


    One of the ways we love God is by loving others. When the world seeks for true Christianity, they look first for a loving spirit among brethren. The great challenge of life is to love others the way Jesus loved us will be considered in Phil Sanders’ sermon presentation next week, “Loving Others.” The program can be seen locally every Sunday at 7:30 a.m. on WTRF-TV, Ch. 7.
