Please join us for a seminar after the service on February 26, when the sheikh of a local mosque will join Scott Seaton for a discussion of what it means to be Children of Abraham in our respective faiths. The seminar gives us a chance to welcome our Muslim neighbors, consider our similarities and differences with candor and respect, and show the love of Jesus to others. Please invite friends of any or no faith. Lunch and childcare will be provided for those attending the morning worship; the seminar starts at 1 pm. Please RSVP by February 22.
The next meeting is scheduled for Sunday, February 26, at Young & Michele Lee’s home. If you’re in grades 3rd—5th, you’re invited!

Volunteers Needed for Sound Team Set Up/Take Down
The sound team needs 5 more volunteers to help unload/set up and pack/load the sound equipment. Volunteers only do this once every two months and are paired with other volunteers. This small act of service is integral to the worship team being able to practice on time. Please consider helping in this way. You can contact Israel Ruiz or Nate Telus to sign up.
Emmanuel kids need YOU as there still are needs. One Sunday per month, 10:15-12:15pm, one teacher’s assistant is needed. Please contact Beth Youmans if you’re interested.
