Women’s Five Week Bible Study February 9th –March 8th:  Join us for a study of Laura Story’s new book I Give Up, The Secret to a Surrendered Life. This will be a five week study with a brief weekly dvd message from Laura and discussion of her book and our “homework” (daily personal study from the study guide). We will meet from 4:30-5:30pm on Sunday afternoons beginning Sunday, February 9th and ending Sunday, March 8th. The book is $13 and the study guide is $9. You don’t have to purchase the book but it will enhance your study. I highly recommend the book! Please contact Dana Lunday at mdlunday@mebtel.net if you are interested in this study. See a description of the study below.

In this five-session video/book Bible study, recording artist and bestselling author Laura Story demonstrates the ironic joy found when we surrender it all to God and simply give up. Surrendering expectations and power is not a step-by-step process but a willful, daily decision worth every single ounce of effort. The very act of completely surrendering our will to His can become the one act that will change your life forever!



Sunday, February 9th our Annual Youth Fundraiser Sweets for the Sweet. From 9:00 am to 12:30 pm. For a donation, you will be given a valentine box to fill up with your choice of a dozen homemade goodies. If you would be willing to make goodies for this fundraiser, please sign up on the sign-up sheet in your Sunday School class. These need to be bite sized and individually wrapped, if it has nuts please label it. Please deliver to the church kitchen between 3:00 – 5:00 pm Saturday, February 8th.
