In lieu of our usual update and devotional this week, I’d like to give a quick update on the progress of the worship center work.

As I’m sure you all noticed last Sunday, the scaffolding that is necessary to access and hang our new speakers for the worship center was a prominent feature on Sunday morning. Our projected work schedules this week and next will have the scaffolding up at least one more Sunday with the very real possibility that it might be pushed to one additional beyond that. The work involves creating a new site to mount the speakers, running cables, sheetrock and paint work, and sound tech work in the actual installation and setup of the speakers.

I appreciate all your patience as we make sure that things are done well and that all parties involved in the work have time to complete what is needed. Some of those involved are volunteers, and we are SO thankful for the hard work they’re doing to set us up for the future.

If you have questions about the work being done, feel free to ask! I hope you all have a blessed week.

In Christ,


Bobby Kirkpatrick

Spring Potluck

Plan to stay after the service on March 3 to enjoy a meal and fellowship at the Spring Potluck in Friends Center. If cooking/preparing food is not your gift, but you would still like to provide for the meal, there are plenty of opportunities to help with setting up before the service and cleaning after the meal. Follow the link to sign up electronically or look for the paper sign-up in the Coffee Café.

Budget Meeting

There will be a brief budget meeting after the service on February 11 and everyone is welcome to attend. Nursery care is available if needed.

Sunday Evening Activities

There will be no Kidzone or Bible Study this Sunday night, February 11. Those activities will resume their normal times and schedules on Sunday, February 18.

Scuba VBS Save the Dates!

On July 8-12, kids ages 3 years old – 5th grade will take a deep dive into a friendship with God at Scuba VBS. Registration for VBS will open to church families before and after the worship service on February 25 and March 3. Community registration will open after Spring Break. This event serves our church and community and requires many volunteers to run smoothly. We appreciate you prayerfully considering how you can help serve this event. Be sure to save these dates and be looking for more information to come soon.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8
