New Book Study
Half Truths by Adam Hamilton
Starting February 16
9 am in Room 213
God Helps Those Who Help Themselves and Other Things the Bible Doesn’t Say.
They are simple phrases. They sound Christian—like something you might find in the Bible. We’ve all heard these words. Maybe we’ve said them. They capture some element of truth, yet they miss the point in important ways. Join this study to search for the whole truth by comparing common Christian clichés to the message and ministry of Jesus.

Mat Making
Sunday, February 16
3 pm in the Covenant Center
Learn to weave sleeping mats out of plastic bags! Please bring plastic grocery bags (Kroger, Walmart, Tom Thumb and Albertsons preferred). There will be looms available.
