RECURRING EVENTS

Celebrate Recovery
Every Monday @ 6 pm. Dinner, childcare, and transportation are provided.
Tuesday morning Bible Study, in the parlor at 10 a.m.

Fellowship Breakfast and Workday
All interested folks are welcome to join the second Saturday Fellowship Breakfast in our Fellowship Hall at the church.  We will enjoy breakfast, a time of devotions and fellowship.  On some Saturdays, the Trustees will also have a work time at the church for those who like to help out with projects. Everyone is welcome!

Community Dinner
On the last Sunday of each month, at 5 p.m. we provide dinner and visiting time. There is no cost and it's open to anyone in the community. We have put some effort into letting our friends from Celebrate Recovery, the Food Bank and Candle Rock know about this get-together, and want anyone who would like to come to feel welcome. What do we do? Well, we eat! We provide a supper meal, do some visiting, sometimes Pastor Alice or Steve will have games for the kids (that adults seem to enjoy too!) and we just get to know each other. Our goal? Being the heart of Jesus loving others. How can you help? Come join us! Anyone is welcome. If you'd like to help with the menu contact Steve Staker or Karen Briggs, chairs of the Outreach and Missions Committee. We take turns providing the food and have some funds to help buy some items. So you can also donate to the Outreach Committee to help cover costs. Also, you can come help with the games or activities that help us get to know each other.

Lenten Bible Studies
The season of Lent covers a 40-plus time period leading up to Easter. For a long time now, the church has used this as a time of preparation, self-denial, of prayer to open our lives up to the presence of Christ. This year we are offering four adult and one youth Lenten Study Group that will meet weekly for 6 weeks.

• Sunday morning 9:30 a.m. led by John Chenoweth. Meeting in the conference room to do a 6-week video study Seven Words, Listening to Christ from the Cross.
• Tuesday mornings at 10 a.m. will start a 6-week Bible study beginning March 8th - John, The Gospel of Light and Life led by Pastor Alice.
• Tuesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. a six-week video study, hosted at Nancy Johnson’s home, Cherie Nelsen leading. Witness at the Cross.
• Thursday evening at 6 p.m. a six-week video study at the church looking more deeply at the Lord’s Prayer led by Pastor Alice


VOLUNTEERS, HELPERS & OUTREACH

The Fredonia Food Bank (517 N. 7th St)
Is open each Thursday from 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Nursery Attendant
We are looking for volunteers who will be on our list of nursery attendants to help watch the nursery on Sundays when there are families in worship who might want to use it. You are not obligated to any particular Sunday, we just want to have a list of 4 or 5 people so that on any given Sunday if we need nursery help there will be someone here who can. We are in the process of installing a video monitor in the nursery that will be hooked up to our Facebook Live broadcast, enabling whoever is in there to follow along with the worship service. Volunteers will need to complete the Safe Gatherings certification. If you have not been certified and are interested contact Pastor Alice. If you are interested in being a nursery volunteer please contact Fred Lorentz. A big thank you to Kristi who has been our faithful nursery helper and Sunday school teacher for some time. Her time here blessed many kids and we offer our blessings as she moves in a different direction with her work.


We have a church bus to pick you up and take you home Sunday mornings!
Call the church office at 620-378-4860 to set up your ride.
