Going into the Spring and Easter Season we are going to be re-focusing on our
MISSION: Reaching others!

Who’s Your 1?
Between now and Palm Sunday (March 24th ), you will repeatedly hear the question: ‘Who’s Your 1?.’ Who is the person in your sphere of influence that God wants you to reach? Over the next several weeks, you will be hearing more details about ‘Your 1.’ Will you be praying?

How to Create a Culture of Reaching the Lost
For all Staff, Deacons, and Ministry Leaders (and spouses), there will be a dinner on Friday, Feb. 16th at 6:00 pm for the purpose of equipping leaders to set the example on Reaching Others. Mark your calendars and be listening for more details.
