Special Congregational Meeting – March 6
All members are asked to attend a brief meeting after the 2nd service to vote on a budget change and to hear updates on God’s work here. The 11:00 service childcare for 2-8 year olds will continue for the parents attending the meeting, but all other children need to be picked up immediately after the worship service.



Baby Shower – March 6
Ladies, you are encouraged to come to a baby shower to honor Katie Haecker and her baby (due mid-March), hosted by Jan Murphy. It starts at 2:00 p.m. and details are on The City or RSVP to madremurf@me.com.

Everyone is encouraged to come to a potluck to hear updates from our Ghanaian missionary Stephen Aputara, after the 2nd service on March 13. Please bring a main dish for 10 AND a salad or dessert to share.

Register for Annual Women’s Conference
Ladies, are you coming to our annual conference (formerly known as “the retreat”)? Registrations will be taken on March 13, 20 & 27 at the back of the auditorium. Complete information is on The City or brbible.org.

Baptism
Our next baptism is during our Easter celebration of Jesus’ Resurrection. If you or someone in your family wants to participate in it or future baptisms, please contact Debbie Stevenson (debbie@brbible.org). Parents, we have an excellent workbook that helps parents and kids understand the meaning of baptism. Contact Regina Gossage (gossagefam@aol.com) to get a book and find out more about the process for children being baptized. 

Pastor Jack finished the three-part series in Hebrews 2, “Why Sovereignty Became Humanity”. Download it to be encouraged and reminded that if our God is for us, who can be against us…even ourselves.
