Welcome to our services! 10:00 a.m. – Sunday School 11:00 a.m. – Morning Worship Service Prayer Ministry: Lodena and Lona Next Sunday: Richard F Nursery: Kathy A and Peggy Next Sunday: Shonda and Jerica T H I S W E E K Monday, February 19th – Ladies Crafting Night.Starting in March, we will be designating one Monday night craft night for the making of puppets. We only made around 100 last summer and since they were such a hit at Wednesday Night Live during Harbor Days, we hope to at least double that amount so we are starting early. Many hands make light work! We will also be asking for some help with the donation of materials to make the wigs for each puppet. Monday, March 12th will be the first puppet making session. Wednesday, February 21st – 6:30 pm – Bible Study and Prayer Time – “Each time, before you intercede, be quiet first, and worship God in His glory. Think of what He can do, and how He delights to hear the prayers of His redeemed people. Think of your place and privilege in Christ, and expect great things!” --- Andrew Murray Monday, March 5 – Voice of the Martyrs will show a film on the life of its founder Richard Wurmbrand. It deals with the days when he was imprisoned for his faith in Christ. Tickets can be bought online at torturedforchrist.com and will be showing in Traverse City at the Cherry Blossom Theater. Your account will not be charged unless they get enough tickets to fill the theater. Let’s get together for some fellowship and to be inspired by our Lord. Friday, March 23rd – 7:00–9:00 pm - Game Night The total offering for last week was $1,274.00: $30.00 was donated to the Building Fund, the remaining $1,244.00 was posted to the General Fund.
Ladies Night Out We have been invited to join the ladies of Kingsley Baptist Church on Friday evening, the 16 of March from 6:30 – 9:00 pm. We could car pool from our church parking lot, meeting at 5:50 pm. Last year, Pam and Diane attended and so enjoyed the warm fellowship, great food and fun. This year, the first 12 gals to sign up can attend with Pam and Diane. They serve a delicious meal, then have a game time and devotional and then have a table of beautiful prizes that are auctioned off using play money. They host a first rate evening that we could perhaps try to duplicate at our own church this coming fall. Our crafting group has been making gifts to use as prizes with the intent of having single moms in the area as our guests of honor. This will be our first ladies outing of the new year, so plan on joining us!
