  • This past week we launched a new sermon series called “My Eternity Portfolio.” We will be looking at the need for Christians to invest in others. We also will be promoting our “Laying the Foundation for the Future” stewardship emphasis that will culminate in a special offering on Sunday March 20th. I would encourage you to take a few moments to read the information provided last week and pray about your partnership in our ministry as we move forward. If you have questions or need a copy, please contact Pastor Joe.
  • I want to say thanks to those that helped out with the Easter mailer and thank you to those of you that signed up to pray for the upcoming outreach campaign. I am excited about our new series “I Love My Church.” We were able to get the mailers counted and they will be mailed at the end of next week. Copies will be available to pass out to friends and family.
  • We are providing “I Love My Church” T-shirts. Please complete one of the insert in this weekend bulletin to help up plan for the number and sizes needed. We are asking for a donation of $5 per shirt and encouraging families to donate to help defray that cost of the shirts for our guests.
  • Thinking of Easter, we are currently collecting candy or donations for the kids Egg Hunt. If you desire to help, please bring your donation on Sunday or mark your financial gift and place in the offering.
  • We will be hosting our Annual Easter Brunch at 9:15AM. Thanks to those that have already signed up to bring food. If you are not on the list, please check out the sign-up this week.
  • I have been taking to others about Baptism. We are preparing to do another Baptism in a couple weeks. Please talk to Pastor Joe if you are interested.
  • The Six-8 Youth will be meeting at the Schramek’s this Friday evening for Bible Study. Please contact Zac or Pastor Joe for directions. They will be meeting at 7pm.
  • Guys, just a reminder that the Camp Gilead Men’s Retreat is just around the corner. I am hoping that you will attend and I am trying to take our biggest group yet this year. Please let either Tony S. or Pastor Joe know if you will be attending. It promises to be a great retreat!
  • We will be continuing our in-house series on “My Eternity Portfolio.”  We will be exploring the Biblical teaching on what the Bible has to teach us about rewards. I will also be continuing to promote our “Laying the Foundation for the Future” stewardship emphasis. I do covet your prayers for wisdom and words as we move through this exciting phase of ministry!
