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.
It’s that time again – Roll the Dice and Ring the Bell. A fun time to get together and catch up with old (I meant gently used) friends or meet some new ones. Tuesday March 22nd – Brown Bag Lunch at 11:30 – Dice down at Noon. Prized White elephants have been won and lost in seasons past. Prior experience not required.
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.

Each church takes a turn preparing and serving a variety of hot meals, and local supermarkets donate baked goods and bread which can be taken home. Sign up on the website if you and your family would like to join us in serving our neighbors.
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.
