Today we bring our offerings for GEMS Girls’ Club program. The GEMS (Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior) ministry continues to grow and reaches out to girls in over 950 churches and Christians organizations throughout North America and the world. The GEMS ministry relies on your faithful support. Thank you for your continuous prayers!

Next week our church will take an offering for Ministry Support for Mark, Selina and Levi Patterson. Please continue to keep them all in your prayers as they go about their work in China.

Next Sunday, March 19th

We begin our Lent series of services preparing our hearts for Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Our theme this year is “Freedom from Fears.” In the gospels Jesus often tells his followers “Do not be afraid!” We in our weakness and sin have many fears. We will speak about these fears during lent and on Easter be assured that Jesus sets us free and in him “All fears are gone.” We begin next Sunday by reading from Luke 5 and Luke 22:56-62 and our “Fear of Inadequacy.” Pastor Mike will lead our worship.
