The season of Lent is almost upon us and we want to invite you to join us on a Trip of a Lifetime. We are starting this journey on Ash Wednesday with four different times to come and receive ashes (6-8 am, 11 am-1 pm, and 4-6 pm) as well as our service on Wednesday, March 6 at 7:00 pm which will also be live streamed on our website. This is an important start to the Lenten season and we want everybody to be a part of it!

Have you, or someone you know, been affected by unhealthy or abusive relationships? Stronger Women is a group for women which helps bring God's healing to wounds, creates a safe environment for healing, learning, restoration, and community, and helps restore hope. Stronger Women helps to empower survivors to reclaim what abuse took away. Our next Stronger Women group will begin on Thursday, March 21 and will meet weekly for eight weeks from 6-8 pm. Register online. For more information, please contact Katie Bonner, Director of Care Ministries.

MARCH 30 • 9 AM-3 PM • THE LOFT
Ladies, come join us as we share teaching from IF: Gathering 2019 and take a deep look into one of the most practical, yet misunderstood, books of the Bible—Proverbs. This book doesn’t show us a set of rules, but a different way to live that is so attractive and so fragrant it flows through our lives, actions, relationships, and work, drawing people to Christ. Registration is just $10 per person and includes lunch. Childcare is available 9am-1pm, but limited, through advance registration.
