Happy Mother’s Day!
Please enjoy and take advantage of the Mother’s Day Photo Op set up on the patio.

Ladies’ Book Club
Ladies…would you be interested in participating in a Book Club using the book, “Me, Myself and Lies”? We would meet on an evening twice a month, share some snacks, catch up with each other, and have a meaningful discussion time about the book’s content, chapter by chapter. If you are interested, please sign up on the Information Counter.

New Adult Sunday School Series
This Sunday we will begin a multiple part teaching series titled “Soul Keeping” by John Ortberg. The focus of this series is to encourage believers to attend to the health of our souls while navigating through a world that is often soul crushing. The series is a combination of DVD sessions and table discussions. We hope you can join us at 9:30 am in the Fellowship Hall.
