* Basics for Christian Living
On February 19th, we'll launch a new discipleship class that deals with the essential elements of the Christian life. Whether you are new to your Christian faith or need to solidify some foundational matters in order to share with others, this class will be an excellent tool. The class will be led by Steve Wilson and will meet in C101 at 6:00 pm.

*Discover Hillcrest
On March 1st and 8th, the inaugural offering of the Discover Hillcrest class will meet in the Missions Room at 9:15am. Though required for membership at Hillcrest, the class is not solely intended for new members. It is a 2-week offering that covers the core values of HBC and how we express those in our various ministries. If you are new to Hillcrest, it is an excellent opportunity to ask questions and begin building some new relationships. Come join us in the Missions Room behind the big oak tree!

Are you a souper hero?
We are looking for boys and girls that are up to the challenge! For the month of February we are collecting single servings of soup and other non-perishable items for John Yates' food ministry with First Baptist Church of Yazoo City, MS.
A list of items is provided. Their greatest need is single serving containers of soups and pastas with pop-tops (preferably nothing that needs a can opener or any ingredients other than water.)
Containers, divided by boys and girls, will be available on the 2nd and 3rd floors of F Building for the entire month. Let's see who can collect the most!
Items Needed: Instant oatmeal, cereal bars, pop-tarts, ravioli, mac and cheese, Vienna sausage, soup, ramen noodles, jerky sticks, crackers, cookies, granola bars, and fruit snacks. Please make sure all items are single serving packets or containers.

"I am a Christian Now"
Our next offering of "I am a Christian Now" class will be offered in March. This is available to any child who is a believer or may have questions regarding salvation. Classes will be on Sunday mornings during the 1st Sunday School hour, March 1, 8, 15, and 22. Children will meet in F309. Class size is limited to 12 children so sign up with the Children's Ministry office if you'd like your child to participate. Due to the type of curriculum we will be studying, children who sign up need to make sure they can attend all four classes.
