Men’s Night Out – Join us at Scott’s Bar & Grill on February 6 at 6 p.m. Please RSVP to Brian Danforth .
Today in Sunday School – The lesson this week focuses on the story of “Jesus and the Little Children.” In our sin, we are like small children; helpless, dependent, and needy. So Jesus came to bestow His love and eternal gifts upon us. Parents could discuss, “How did Jesus show His compassion on these little children? How does Jesus shower His compassion on us?”
