Transformation Sunday Message: Oh Peter! Scripture: Luke 9:28-36 Pastor Joel S. Hawthorne
Wednesday Bible Study 7pm: Simon Peter He was not rich or educated, but was familiar with hard work. He was quick-tempered and impetuous, but possessed a passion that would change the world. He left everything to follow his teacher, yet struggled with fear and doubt. Pastor Hawthorne leads this six week study on the life, faith, and character of Simon Peter. A video features author and pastor Adam Hamilton, who will show us key sites in the life of Simon Peter. Come and be a part of this study as we seek to better understand how Peter’s story speaks to us today, and helps us to know Christ more fully and to become the disciples Christ calls us to be. Perhaps we will see a bit of ourselves in Simon Peter, the flawed but ultimately faithful follower of Jesus. Agape classroom.
"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!
