THIS FEEDS 10,000 SERVICE PROJECT—We are taking signups at the Info table since the FEED 10,000 organization needs to know how many people will be at our event on April 26th! Please continue to COLLECT YOUR LOOSE CHANGE in your Cups for our “Stop Hunger Now” program and dump it into our Hunger Jug on Sunday mornings. So far we have raised $237 and need to raise $3,000 by the event, which is on Sunday, April 26th (lunch provided), where the whole church will gather together to make meal packets to be shipped around the world! If you don’t have a Hunger Cup, ask one of our youth at the Hunger Jug and they will be delighted to give you one!

WOMEN’S MINISTRY EVENT—Spring Cleaning! Ladies, set aside your gently used items for our March 7th “Stop & Swap” event from 10:30am-2:00pm. Bring things you don’t need and/or take things you do need! Everything is free and whatever is not taken gets donated. Pick up a flyer at the info table this Sunday for details. Where and when to drop items off…see flyer. Please bring family, friends and neighbors!

HYMN SING INVITATION—You are invited to attend a Hymn Sing on Tuesday, March 10th at 3:00pm, with the Joyful Heart’s group from Grace hosting it. It will be held at the Emeritus Assisted Living facility located at 6727 Laguna Park Dr. EG.

AGUA VIVA MISSIONS TRIP—We are in the raising funds mode and there are many ways to partner with this event. We are now accepting your recycling of cans & plastic CA redemption products. Just bring them to church. Start saving your gently used treasures for a possible yard sale at Kerr Jr. High, depending on availability. Also, items needed are: sports equipment; bubbles, kick balls, soccer balls, and long ropes for jump rope. Treats for the team: cookies, chips, breakfast bars, red licorice and ground coffee. We want to give everyone the opportunity to participate in reaching Mexico for Christ, and this is how you can be a part of that. Most importantly, pray for this outreach. God has a plan for us and we know He will provide for our needs. Thank you from the feet of the Agua Viva Team.

MEN’S BREAKFAST—All men, on Saturday, March 14th, from 7:30-9:00am, plan to meet for our monthly breakfast gathering at the church office, 9701 Dino Dr., Suite 100, EG 95624. We will have a good time visiting and sharing a great meal together.

MESSIAH IN THE PASSOVER—This special presentation is designed to give participants a deeper understanding both of Passover and of the Communion table. There are invitations on the Information table for you to take with you to invite people to this event on Sunday, March 22nd, presented by Chosen People Ministries and Michael Cohen.
