Sermon: Say "Yes" to Encouragement Scripture: Hebrews 10:24-25; Romans 1:11-12 Pastor Joel S. Hawthorne
NO WEDNESDAY EVENING ACTIVITIES, FEBRUARY 20, 2019 DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER CONDITIONS
Wednesday Bible Study 7pm So, I was saying to someone just before Christmas, how proud I was of our church and how we are learning to say “yes” instead of “no.” And wouldn’t you know it? Along comes a study by Robert Schnase entitled, “Just Say Yes.” Do you say “no” too often? Yes. Pastors, laity, staff… we’re all guilty of squelching and constraining creative people who want to use the gifts God has given them to serve and lead even if we don’t mean to. Let’s look at some of the reasons why as we study this book together. Just Say Yes! See what hap-pens. The classes follow Wednesday Night Dinners. I look forward to seeing you! --JSH
"Story Place" - A New Ministry for Children
Kids, you are invited to Story Place, a new story time in the library after church on Sundays! Starting March 3rd, we will begin exploring exciting stories together! After Dig In, enjoy some snacks in the fellowship hall and then join us in the library where we will have some puzzles or games for you. We will start reading around 12:30, and after the story, we can help you check out a book to take home with you. We will wrap up by 1:00.
Adults, if you'd like to volunteer to be a reader, we would love to have you! If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to reach out to your librarians, J. Hinson, S. Stokes, and K. Wilson or email us at email@example.com.

"Dig In"--Deeper Bible Experiences for Kids
Children in grades K-5 meet during the Sunday worship hour for their own special Bible study and worship time. Led by a team of dedicated children’s leaders, the group will sing, have crafts and drama, see videos, study the Bible and learn why it matters. “Dig In” is a product of Group, Inc., which designs our summer VBS material, so you know it will be unique and exciting!
Children go to the Sanctuary first and then the leaders will take them downstairs for their own experience. We look forward to an exciting Bible study and worship time with the children!
Our second annual Ladies' Retreat is coming up in June. We had such a good time last year studying, praying, singing and laughing together! This one can only get better!
We will go back to Skycroft Conference Center on South Mountain, just west of Frederick. It's a beautiful place with restful mountain views. Motel style accommodations will allow two ladies to a room. The cost is $60 with a non refundable deposit of $25 due when you sign up. Reservation deadline is May 22 so sign up soon! Make your reservation through the church office or by signing the form on the bulletin board outside of the kitchen.
