#1 – LOV IN LAUREL Community Outreach April 21st
On Saturday, April 21st, we will be hosting a community event in the heart of Laurel to show the love of Jesus to our community. To make this a successful event, we need a team of friendly and out-going men and women to be a part of the connect team. This team of people will be working directly with the guests who come to the event. If you would like to be a part of this connect team, please stop by the Ministry Corner this Sunday for more information.
#2 – Student Ministry Cake Auction on February 18th
The Annual Student Ministry Cake Auction is February 18th at 6:00 pm. We will start in the Family Life Center where we will enjoy an auction from our very own Danny Dye and Darrin Mckitrick. All funds raised will support missions efforts by our Student Ministry. This year we are attempting to bring 12 students to Central America to serve the poor and broken. We encourage you to give generously to our international missions effort to bring the love and truth of Jesus Christ into communities around the world.
#3 – Beyond 15000 Missions Update
Dr. Lehman is an IMB missionary we support in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Our mission committee has been working for many months with him to find Congo-Swahili bibles to use in ministering to the people they serve. Please join us in prayer as we seek to find a printer and the funds to print and ship 2,000-3,000 bibles.
