SUPER BOWL OUTREACH CHALLENGE  We trust you are making plans to use the Super Bowl as an opportunity to get together and build relationships with friends and neighbors tonight!

SOUPER SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 5  Beginning today, Super Bowl Sunday, we are collecting cans of soup (and other canned items) for the Food Pantry at Prairie Lake Elementary School. Please bring as many cans as possible throughout the month, to meet the needs of our “mission school.”

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 12th, the passage is Isaiah 40:3-5.

CONGREGATIONAL MEETING  Next 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.  Spend some time praying and pondering this week about who you want to nominate to this important position.
