Daylight Savings Time begins this Sunday! Don’t forget to “Spring Forward” by setting your manual clocks ahead one hour before heading to bed.
Do you have questions about God but hesitate to ask them?
You are invited to the Sunday school class of Dr. Kenneth Collins, a professor at Asbury Seminary. Dr. Collins is known around the world as the expert on John Wesley studies. We are blessed to have Ken and his wife, Marilyn, as members of our church family.
The class meets at 11 am every Sunday in the Trinity Room, room 116, located next to the gym. Dr. Collins talks about the meaning and purpose of our lives as Christians, and allows plenty of time for discussion of those questions we hesitate to ask. Limited seating, so come early!

You can return your bag of donations on Sunday, March 17th. If you can’t attend on the 17th, your food selections are welcome at any time.
