Hi church! Evidence of God’s perfect timing surrounds me this week. John Devine’s life transitioned from this world to God’s presence on Wednesday morning, peacefully as he slept. Phone calls, emails and conversations took place at “just the right time” this week. My plans to go on a mission trip “someday” found themselves superseded by a clear call to go NOW. This spring. To Macedonia, alongside Rick and Mary Drenk and a team of others. Which reminds me of a verse… “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 19:21 My prayer for each of us is that we remember to hold our plans loosely, remaining open to respond to God’s perfect plan. And speaking of planning, here are several things to note:
Faith4Freedom invites you as we join other churches in our community in the fight against human trafficking. Attend Freedom Weekend 2014 on March 8 & 9 at Berean Baptist and Community of Hope Church. For details pick up a flyer in the lobby or contact Deb at email@example.com
Women’s Ministry Spring Retreat
We are now taking registrations for our spring retreat at Villa Maria on May 16-18. It will be a great weekend with time to slow down, enjoy time with friends new and old, and grow closer to God. Deposit of $50 required; double and single rooms available. Sign up in the lobby or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Whether this is your first Sunday at Faith or you have been kicking the tires around here for a while, we want to invite you to our Faith Connect lunch Sunday March 9 at 12:15pm in room 200. This is intended to give you information about our church, answer questions, and point you in the right direction to get involved with a small group or volunteering. Childcare will be provided. RSVP to Carrie at email@example.com
Small Group Spring Launch
We are excited to launch several new and some continuing small group opportunities on Sunday, March 9. On that date you will be given a time to connect with leaders, ask questions about groups, and sign up. Please be praying about connecting with a small group and seeing what kind of plans God has for you this spring.
