Announcements for Sunday, Feb. 3

Sermon Series: First Impressions

Seeing Jesus for the first time again…By coming face to face with Jesus, people were changed through his love and healed with his compassion; given the reward his perfect life deserved instead of the judgement sinful lives warrant. He knew their stories even before he met them….he knows ours, too.

Today, Jesus meets a bleeding woman intent on restoration.

Next Sunday, February 10 – Man at the Pool of Bethesda
John 5:1–15

Listening Circles @ Fellowship Meals – February 10

Be sure to mark next Sunday on your calendar to attend either the morning or evening fellowship meal and join in the discussion about how our Sunday worship welcomes Young Adults and Families with Youth and Children.

No Drop Off Today, But Keep Bringing The Goods!

It is truly Biblical to give rather than receive. Look around your house and snag items (clothing, household goods, small appliances, etc.) that are clean and in good working order. Bring them to Howell Auditorium on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (9:00am–5:00pm) or drop them off at our curbside unloading spot on California Ave SW on Sundays (3:00-4:45pm).
