What A Wonderful Weather Week!


What a wonderful weather week! I hope you are enjoying it. It’s hard to believe that I am running in January in shorts. However, I do wear a long sleeve shirt. I am working intentionally to build up my mileage this year. I would love to complete a marathon by the end of 2016.

Connection Groups end this Sunday. Our new groups will begin on Sunday, February 21st at 9:30am following a two week break. Details on those groups will come out shortly.

We have nailed down the Burrton Campus Pastor search down to 13 candidates. We are sending each of them a follow-up questionnaire to help us narrow the field even more. Please keep the search team in prayer during this important process.

“Women of Steel,” our annual women’s retreat, is Saturday, February 27 at the Meridian Center. This all day event starts at 9:30 (after breakfast) and is only $20. Registration includes lunch and snacks and is due when you sign-up, which you can do this Sunday. Our own Sharon Vermillion is the speaker and Mona Heinze will lead worship. Remember to bring a silent auction item. The auction will benefit NightLight, our mission in Thailand. Gale Pfeiffer can help if you have questions (267-394-2823).

Save the date for the next Senior Luncheon on Saturday, April 9. This fun event includes FREE lunch, traditional hymns and a speaker. Invite your friends! Sign-up sheets will be available in the next few weeks.

I can’t wait to see you on Sunday for week two in our series, American Idols. Have a GREAT week!
