      25 of our college students are going to Jamaica for a mission trip Spring Break March 3-9. Please plan to stay for lunch next Sunday, January 28 after morning worship, to help out our college students with their mission trip expenses. We will be serving chicken (rotisserie or jerk), rice, mac n cheese, salad and dessert. You may donate whatever you like.


CARE Group 5 will have lunch together in the FLC and help support the Jamaica Mission trip next Sunday. A brief CARE group meeting will follow.


Bikes and Bibles on Saturday, February 3, 9am to 11am. Bring your wheels and start the year off right with our new family ministry. Stay tuned for more information to come.


The Tuesday morning Ladies Bible Class meets each week at 10am in the Fellowship Hall. All ladies are welcome to come and be a part of this additional time of Bible study and fellowship. Childcare is provided. Consider making this a part of your weekly routine. Beginning in February, our lessons will come from the study book Immeasurably More by Cassandra Martin.


The Youth will host our next Golden Lunch Bunch event Sunday, February 11th immediately following worship. Please put it on your calendar and plan to come to the FLC to be served by our youth and to have lunch together with our elderly friends of the congregation. It’s a great opportunity to visit and bridge the gap.


1 Peter 5:2 “Be Shepherds of God’s

flock that is under your care…”

Ecclesiastes 7:10 “Do not say, ‘Why were the old days better than these?’ For it is not wise to ask such questions.”

Do you ever ask this question? Be content in today.

Adult volunteers are needed to work in the sound/projection booth. This is a one month commitment and training is provided. The more volunteers we have to serve in this area, the fewer months each individual is needed to serve. If you are interested in sharing in this important ministry, please contact Matt Wyder or Genie White. Thank you for your willingness to serve.
