Some things in our lives seem so insignificant that we pay little or no attention to them. But some seemingly little things make a very big difference in the health of our lives, our relationships, our marriages, and our families. Varying our course just a few degrees on a compass can, over miles, cause us to end up in an entirely different place. For several weeks, we're going to look at little thoughts, little habits, little actions, little words and little prayers that make a BIG difference in life. Understanding these little things, and putting them into action in your life, can, over time, transform lives, relationships, and even destinies. Join us, and bring someone you care about!

Ladies Day
 - you can still sign up!

Saturday, September 30, 9am. Ladies of all ages are invited to our annual Ladies' Day Event. This year's speaker will be Karen Hossink, author of Confessions of an Irritable Mother and Finding Joy. Karen has been a speaker for moms' groups and women's events since 2005, talking about the hope God gives in the midst of struggles. In addition to our main speaker, there will be a variety of breakout sessions and a delicious lunch, all enjoyed in fellowship with other women from our church and community. This is a half-day you won't want to miss, so register today! See our website for more info or to register.

Sunday, October 15, 4pm. Join us on Sunday, October 15 at 4pm in the Sanctuary for a Hymn Sing! This event is for anyone who loves to sing praises to God!
