21 Day Pre-Easter Daniel Fast
In preparation for Easter Sunday, we are encouraging the church to begin to fast and pray for family, friends, neighbors, etc., who are not yet Christians. We are suggesting a 21 day Daniel fast to begin at sundown, Saturday, March 10, and end at sundown, on Saturday, March 31. Daniel fast guidelines can be found on-line and will be made available for the next few weeks at church. Of course, anyone who has any medical issue that may be affected by fasting should modify whatever fast they do to prevent a problem from arising and some may need to consult their physician before fasting.

Pot Luck Fellowship
Sunday, March 4, right after the worship service. Please bring a main dish and either a side dish or dessert to share and plan to stay and enjoy some friendship and good conversation to go along with the good food.

Parking Lot Fund
Our parking lot needs to be resurfaced. Our contractor will be ready to do the job in March or April. We need to raise the funds to accomplish this needed upgrade. The estimate is $26,498.00. We have raised $17,341.00, 71 parking spaces. We only need 38 more. We are asking everyone to purchase one or more parking spaces at $243.00 per space to help pay for this need. Please ask the Lord what your part might be.

Men’s Softball Team.
We have entered a team in the Virginia Beach spring league. This time we are in the least competitive league since that’s our skill level. Steve Pickford is currently signing men up to play. You must be 18 to play and the registration fee is $36.00. If you are interested contact Steve via email at

Self Help Missions Makeover.
We need to replace the exterior sheathing and vinyl siding on the back and south side of the children’s wing. When the siding was installed, new sheathing was not used and the sheathing under the siding is mostly rotting away. We have set aside April 30-May 4, to do this with our own labor. If you can take a week off we want this to be do-it-yourself missions trip. We will have professional guidance in removing the old siding, replacing the sheathing, covering it with Tyvek wrap and then installing new siding. Please consider being part of the crew, even if you can’t be here all five days.

Ladies Zumba is rocking on every Tuesday at 6 p.m.. Zumba is open to every lady at every fitness level. You’ll love it! For more information you can call Jean Crabb at 757-427-9371 or email

Sermon Based Life Groups
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be able to study out what you hear on Sunday morning or to discuss it with a few close friends from church? What might that do for you in terms of helping you live out and apply the teaching from the Bible? Have you ever wanted to know that you had a few people in the church you were really close to and could count on? Sermon-based Life Groups are the answer! We currently have eight groups that meet in homes throughout the community. We will form more groups as leaders are trained and available. If you are interested in connecting with a Life Group call the office at 757-427-9371 or email Pastor Cheryl Pickford at
