Weekly Update! 2/10
THIS SUNDAY AT 10:15AM - We are excited for you to join us in person or online this Sunday at 10:15am! We are going through a teaching series currently titled "Witnesses." Jesus followers are empowered by the Holy Spirit and commissioned as witnesses to the Good News of the Risen Jesus. We invite you to join us on Sunday mornings at 10:15am as we begin studying the Bible book titled "Acts." Jesus ascends into heaven, the Holy Spirit comes, Peter preaches, the Church is established, miracles are performed... and that's only the first few chapters! This Sunday, we will be in Acts 3:1-26. When you check in on the church center app, be sure to select "in person" or "online", depending on where you are joining us from.

RED SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 13TH- Valentine's Day is the time of year that gives us a perfect opportunity to discuss 'LOVE' with our children - specifically what the world says about love and what God says about love. We do this on 'Red Sunday.' We invite kids and grown-ups to wear RED (or pink!) and to bring a valentine to share. We use these as fun starting points for our 'love discussion.' We have snacks and activities during our class time to remind our kids 'it's all about love!' If you'll consider giving a treat or your time, please sign up here. If you have questions please text, call, or email Debbie at 503.932.2294 or email@example.com. We are so thankful for the Hope we have in Jesus and His great love for us. We are excited for a day to remind us to share that love with others! Your kids (and you!) are so loved!
