Dr. Monte Cox will be here on January 26-27 for a seminar.  There will be a Saturday session from 10am until 3pm and then on Sunday morning.

LIFE GROUPS:  Life groups will be meeting every Sunday this year.   This will allow us to learn and discuss each chapter in a smaller, more intimate setting.  The goal is for everyone to be in a life group.  Next Sunday (1/20) will be the first of these meetings to study The Story.

SIMPLE SUPPER:  This weeks' entree is Ham and Pinto Beans.  If you weren't able to sign up on Sunday morning and want to eat with us on Wednesday night, call the church office by Tuesday noon.
