Praying Scripture | Combined Sunday School Continues Today
If you haven’t already, consider joining us as we learn to pray scripture together.
Each Sunday during Lent, we’ll learn a new way of approaching scripture. This teaches how to hear and experience God through the reading and hearing of scripture.

Service Sunday | March 29
Sunday, March 29 is our first Service Sunday! This is the new initiative of our church
to devote fifth Sundays during the year to serving our community. For the first one,
we will be packing food boxes. The day will begin at 9:45 with fellowship breakfast,
continue through Sunday School as usual, and then move into packing boxes at 11am. Please stay tuned to the bulletin, website, and Facebook, to learn more and to sign-up
to bring food items for the boxes. We look forward to seeing you there!

One of our goals for 2020 is to use fifth Sundays for church-wide service projects. On Sunday, March 29, we’ll live into exactly that. Together, during the 11am hour, we’ll pack 50 food boxes to give to food insecure families in Dodge County.

We need your help! Be sure to be present at church on March 29! And on Sundays prior, we need your help to bring the following items, based on your last name.
Drop them off in the social hall, against the wall facing Soperton Highway by
Sunday, March 22.

Canned meat such as tuna, salmon, chicken, turkey
Dried fruit
Sugar, salt, pepper
Canned vegetables such as string beans, tomatoes, creamed or whole kernel corn, sweet peas
