S.O.A.P.ING IN FEBRUARY In February the challenge continues to take some time each week to S.O.A.P through a passage in advance of Sunday service.  Then come each Sunday prepared to share what the Holy Spirit has spoken to you through God’s Word.  For next Sunday, February 5th, the passage is Luke 3:1-18.

CONGREGATIONAL MEETING  Sunday, February 12th, immediately following service there will be a very brief Congregational Meeting to elect two members to the Nominating Committee.  All members are strongly encouraged to stay.  In the next two weeks, spend some time praying and pondering who you want to nominate to this important position.
