 This Winter:  As we manage our way through the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it is important to remember what really matters to us. It could be family, friends, time for yourself, helping those less fortunate than you, anything that matters to you. We celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, during this time. For Christians, His birth, life, death, and resurrection is something that matters to us. During these dark, cold months after the glamour and lights of Christmas have been taken down, try celebrating the life of Jesus by living by the principles He taught us or read one of (or all) the Gospels in anticipation of Easter when we celebrate His death and resurrection. If you don’t know which books are the Gospels, they are Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John – the first 4 books of the New Testament.

February 14, 2019 – Homeless Ministry – Please pray for our folks who are involved with this ministry. We could still use some folks to assist in the kitchen and with spending time just talking with the homeless. You do not have to stay overnight. Just come when you can and leave when you must.
