TIME CHANGE IS THIS SUNDAY, MARCH 10: Daylight Saving Time begins at 2:00 AM Sunday, March 10th. Mark your calendar to turn your clocks AHEAD one hour before going to bed on TOMORROW NIGHT, Saturday, March 9.


THIS SUNDAY we continue the series we began last Sunday, The Gospel According to Jacob. We’ll be looking at Genesis 28, in which Jacob has a dream and sees a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven. We’ll see, among a number of things that, contrary to Led Zeppelin’s song, it can’t be bought. God speaks and Jacob responds. There’s a lot in the passage. I encourage you to read it before we come together on Sunday.


UNSINKABLE, 2019 LADIES LUNCHEON, STERLING HILLS COUNTRY CLUB, SATURDAY, MARCH 30TH, 10 AM TO 2 PM: Life is filled with all kinds of adventures. Rough waters, glassy seas, dark skies and dazzling sunrises. But even in the darkest moments– when it feels like we are drowning and might not survive–we can still find the HOPE that is an anchor for our souls. This is a hope that goes beyond circumstance, feeling, behavior, or strength; and one that carries us through any storm, making us truly unsinkable.


Cost: $39 per person. Register at church lobby or at Questions, contact Lynn Knuth at or 805-443-4471.
