Thank you to everyone who has returned the “Neighborly Activity” form. If you don’t hear from us when your event is coming up please reach out to Jon Morris. (We had a couple of forms returned without names, so it could happen.) The CIA will meet Tuesday at 7:00pm, February 25th , in the Fellowship Hall. We’ll review the returned forms to identify which activities have volunteer coverage and which do not. We will also start planning for Ambassadors for the annual Easter Egg Hunt.
United Methodist Women
All ladies of the church are invited to our next meeting, tomorrow, February 24, at 6:00pm, in the Fellowship Hall.    
    
 JoAn Kinrade, our new clergy affiliate, will be bringing the devotion for the evening along with a time of prayer.

We will also be discussing how we would like to move forward with our UMW group into our future, going over our vision and goals for the group. Please try to attend so we can have good input from everyone.

If you will be unable to attend but have thoughts or ideas for us to consider at the meeting, you can call or e-mail me and I’ll make sure they’re included in the discussion. We may also have a “guest presentation” but plans aren’t yet finalized on that!! 

If you have any questions please contact Barb Combs .

Table Groups During Lent
Beginning next Wednesday evening, Feb 19, we will have Table Groups after Wednesday Night Supper, at 6:30’ish in the Fellowship Hall.

These groups of 5-10 people at each table will focus on a selected scripture that will help us engage more fully in our walk through Lent, with real, honest, and deep conversations about where and how God is active in our lives on our Christian journey.

Come and join us for supper at 6:00, or at 6:30 to share in a table. See Pastor Ashley or Barb Combs if you have any questions. 
For any group within the church, whether it's a Sunday School class, small group, committee or team that would like to have a little extra money to fund their ministries, we have one Fundraiser night left this year on the Wednesday Night Supper schedule.

Wednesday, March 25, is open and available. Your group can also raise money for any mission or ministry that is a part of our church. For example, the Altar fund, I-58, Easter Egg Hunt, or Trunk or Treat.

If your group is interested, let me know and I can make that happen for you! Any questions, see Barb Combs
