Coffee Talk:
During all Sundays in March, we are having a special time of fellowship between the two worship services. Each Sunday there will be traditional coffee, flavored coffee, and a different type of refreshment served. We encourage you to consider coming early or staying late so that you can enjoy this time of fellowship and feel more connected to your church family as we move forward as “one body with two worship services”.

Men’s March Madness Event:
Calling all men!! Tomorrow night, March 19th, you are invited to the Men’s March Madness event at NLF at 7:00 pm. This evening will include watching the tournament games, playing games, eating good food, and lots of manly fellowship! Meat will be provided; please bring a side dish to share.
