Now is the time! Here comes God’s kingdom! Change your hearts and lives and trust this good news!”

Mark 1:15 




Bible study will meet back this week at our regular time of 5:00 p.m. We will begin a 3-week study on Samson to learn more about his story before attending the Sight and Sound Production of Samson in April. Hope to see you on Sunday as we start this new series.


The Sunday school lesson this Sunday is another parable told by Jesus about two debtors. Both men owed money, one more than the other. However, both men were forgiven of their debt. Jesus’ parable was to teach us that we all sin and make mistakes, and God is willing to forgive us if we repent and ask His forgiveness. We should all be gracious for His forgiveness.


Planet 456 Branson Trip:

If your child signed up for the Branson trip to see the Sights and Sound production of Samson, please get in touch with Tera Smith as the first payment is due. This trip is scheduled for April 5- April 7.

 Solid Ground Youth

This week we will continue our new lesson series on Old Testament Heroes Women. This Sunday we will learn about Ruth: a Woman of Loyalty. Ruth was a very loyal person. She could have easily gone back to her own family during the hard times, but she remained devoted to Naomi. How loyal are we? Do we work through difficult times with others, or do we wash our hands and turn away? Loyalty is a highly valued characteristic. This is a character quality that we should all seek to possess.

Sunday Night Youth

This Sunday we will meet back with our regular Sunday night Bible Study. We will have a lesson on faith. It is so hard sometimes to accept everything that happens in life, and to understand how it is working out as part of the plan God has. Faith is sight unseen, yet it is belief.

Wednesday Night Small Group

Wednesday night small group will resume back to our regular schedule on March 20. We will continue with our series on Counter Culture. This lesson is about forgiveness. So often we hold onto our anger and the things that others have done to us. Jesus says that in order to move forward, we must forgive. Sin keeps us from being connected to God. We need to strive every day to live out the example that Christ set for us. We will not be perfect, but as Christians, we should do our best to live as Christ would want us to.

Please be in prayer for traveling mercies for our youth and chaperones as they leave this week to see the Ark Encounter and as they continue on to explore parts of Kentucky and Ohio. Thank you all in advance for your prayers and support for the young people in this church.

       This Sunday night the youth group will meet at 6 p. m. for supper.  We will conclude our series on, "This crazy teenage life and how to survive it."  Sr. High: 6:30 p. m. & Jr. High: 7 p. m. 
     Wednesday Nights the youth group is still working theirbway through the book called, "Chew on This."  We meet each Wednesday night at 6 p. m. in the youth room basement.
