February 17 – 19 Marriage Enrichment Retreat
During the month of February, we’ll be preaching through a series entitled “Life Together” in which we’ll study what scripture teaches about our relationships with God and one another. All thriving relationships require effort, intentionality, and quality time together. With that in mind, our church is offering a marriage enrichment retreat on February 17-19 at a retreat center near Taylorsville. Content will be facilitated by Dr. George Naff, his colleague Debbie Leonhardt, and Pastor Jeff. Please contact Jeff at email@example.com for more information and to register to save your spot (space is limited to 10 couples).

February 26 – 2017 Faith Mission
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!
