February 26 – April 30: Faith Promise Mission Giving
Last year many of you took a leap of faith and joined us on a Faith Promise Missions Giving journey. One hundred percent of your Faith Promise Missions Giving supports individuals and organizations that are committed to spreading the good news of Jesus Christ through word and deed. Last year we partnered with over 20 ministries working locally, nationally, and internationally. Over the next 8 weeks, we will be sharing and celebrating some of these missions during worship, leading up to our April 29 Mission Celebration Concert of Prayer. We hope you will come that evening at 6:30 pm to worship and pray over our mission partners, and we hope you will begin now to prayerfully consider how God is calling you to step out in faith through Faith Promise Missions Giving this year!

May 1 – Get in (Spiritual) Shape
Do you long for a more intimate prayer life or deeper insight from God’s word? Consider exercising your soul this May by joining our four week Spiritual Disciplines class. We’ll learn about how ancient Christian practices like contemplative prayer, solitude, and lectio divina can help us discover more abundant life in Christ.
We will meet on the first four Mondays of May from 6:00-7:30pm in room 123. To guide our journey we’ll use Adele Ahlberg Calhoun‘s book Spiritual Disciples Handbook: Practices That Transform Us. Contact Pastor Jeff (firstname.lastname@example.org) to sign up or for more information.
