Our Faith Is Fun for Kids has begun and will be on the 2nd and 4th Sundays each month.  Thanks to Cindy Wright and Sue Hine for being willing to share their faith, time and talents with our younger ones.  Big kids are welcome too!  



Lenten Bible Study 2019 



LENTEN BIBLE STUDY will begin on Tuesday, March 12 and will continue for the following 6 Tuesdays.  There will be 2 sessions offered at 1 PM and 6 PM.  

The book is Simon Peter - Flawed But Faithful Disciple by well known author, Adam Hamilton.  
An ordinary fisherman who heard an extraordinary call.  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 doubt and fear.  Join Pastor Sungmin in this 6 week journey.  Please see the sign up sheet on the table in Fellowship Hall.




I thought I'd share these words of wisdom that Keith brought home from Faith Is Fun a couple of years ago.  It's hanging on my refrigerator.
