Be completely humble and gentle;

be patient, bearing with one another in love.

~Ephesians 4:2~

Last month, we had to cancel the Third Thursday Gathering due to snow.   This month, we are thankful to report no snow is forecast and the temperatures will be unusually warm for February.  See you Thursday at 6:30 P.M. at the cabin.



The children’s missions class will meet tomorrow night at  6:00 and again Saturday morning at 9:00 when they will participate in making items for Operation Christmas Child.  This will be our first, but hopefully not our last, OCC preparation day this year.  Youth and adults are encouraged to come participate with us.  If you do not attend FBC, Kentwood, but are interested in what we are doing Saturday, feel free to join us and take some ideas back to your church.



I will empty the “red basket” at church before Wednesday night so there will be room for more items as listed twice in the last week or so.  Check the list to see what you already have or what you can easily bring.



Help make a difference in the lives of children around the world through OCC.
