Lenten Soup & Sandwich Suppers

Our annual soup suppers will be hosted again this year during the season of Lent. The LWML ladies will provide the soup. You are asked to bring sandwiches to share. We will continue to host the soup suppers on Wednesday evenings at 6pm with devotions/Bible Studies beginning at 6:30pm (the last Wednesday will be 3/16/16). All are welcome to come.

13th annual Crawfish & Shrimp Boil Sat, May 7th!

Make sure to mark your calendars for the opening day of ticket sales, Sunday, April 3rd. For this one day only, you can purchase your ticket for all-you-can eat crawfish and shrimp for only $15–after that the tickets will go up to $25. Students will be selling tickets out in the courtyard. The proceeds from this event help to offset the cost of our high school mission trip, where we will be doing home repair in North Carolina for those with physical and/or financial limitations. We’re blessed to have 40 people going this year, and without your support, many of these students would not be able to participate in this service opportunity.

L-Team Announcements

Family Serve – Grace ‘n Grits March 23 5pm – 7pm

Book Club

Sarah McCoy’s The Baker’s Daughter explores what happens when our loyalties (to country, cause, family, religion) clash with our intuition. A complex braiding of mystery, history, and personality, this novel is engaging and wonderful. Join the discussion on March 28th at 7PM in Room 3.

Women’s Bible Study

Our next Women’s Bible Study will be on March 22nd at 7PM. We will be studying the festivals that our Lord Jesus celebrated. We will take a look at “Passover” and other festivals. I’ve heard rumors that “matza ball soup”  might be in our future.  Looking forward to many of you joining us and sharing in Bible study.
