Messy Church is a new kind of service on the second Sunday of the month for parents and children to share. There will be a time to make crafts as a family, a short (and lively) time of gathering, and a family friendly lunch. This time will be about building community along with thinking about that greater power that is creator and love of all. It takes place in the church gym.
 

Please register in advance so that we can prepare food and supplies.

The Women’s Bible Study will start a new study for Lent entitled, RESTORED: Finding Redemption in our Mess by Tom Berlin. In this book, Berlin talks about the "mess" in our lives that hides our image of God and then guides readers through the process of identifying their mess, accepting responsibility for it and transforming their relationships with God and reflecting his image.

Books are available in the church office or can be picked up during class. The suggested donation for this book is $16. A reading schedule is provided below. Drop-ins are welcome. All women in the church are invited to attend!

The group meets starting at 9:00 a.m. in room 213.
