Communion Offering

Sunday, February 5

It is customary for our church to take a second offering when we receive communion and give it to a local or international organization in need.  Our February communion offering will go towards our students for Rocky Mountain High transportation.  Transportation costs have more than doubled and our goal is to make the trip affordable for more students and leaders to be able to attend.  The Rocky experience is a powerful one and could change the lives of students and leaders.  Please prayerfully consider what your family can offer to support our students and leaders.  To give now, please hit the Communion Offering button, enter gift amount, select one time, and select Communion Offering under Fund in the drop down section.

Book Club

February 12th, 11:15AM

Our next discussion will be over "Jesus: A Pilgrimage" by James Martin. Sara Anderson will facilitate the discussion. Since this book is longer than most we've read, we've decided to split the discussion across two different meetings. The first was January 8th and the second will be February 12th at 11:15. You're welcome to join for one or both meetings. You can pick up the books now at the front desk at the Bridge.
