No Sunday School; childcare for ages 3 and under for the entirety of each service; ages 4-8 dismissed after worship in each service.

To participate, email Brittany (brittany@brbible.org) or Regina for a kid’s workbook (gossagefam@aol.com). April 1 is the deadline to sign up or to have your child complete the baptism book.

Kingdom Calling: Baskets of Blessings Outreach
Ladies, do you have a heart to bless moms in our area who may not yet know Jesus? We need some extra hands willing to help out on a limited basis with a few tasks to make our next churchwide outreach a reality! Please talk with Brittany (brittany@brbible.org) to help assemble or pass out baskets.

Cochabamba Team Update
The team would like to thank everyone who gave so generously last Sunday. Thanks to your help and God’s provision, they met their goal! To anyone who would still like to donate, all additional funds will continue to help the team get to Bolivia. Donate via check or on the City—indicate “Coch2018 team” on memo line or donate via the City fund. Please continue to pray for our missionaries in Bolivia, the Holmans, and the 10 team members as they come to mind! 

Spiritual Responses of a Disciplined Heart
Continuing in “Discipleship of the Heart,” Pastor Jack shared how as disciples of Jesus, we are to adopt disciplines (activities that train us) to encounter Him and be made more and more like Him each day. Listen to “Spiritual Responses of a Disciplined Heart.
