TO (be) KNOW(n)
"Modern Family"
 Pastor's Preview:
Hello, Hope!
As I write my Friday email to you (on Thursday afternoon at 1:00 pm), here's my inspiring view ... 

All day long, every time I look, it's been just like this - a steady stream of volunteers from our church family backing up vans and trucks to the front doors of the church building. They're picking up tons upon tons of food from our Souper Bowl Food Drive for delivery to 90 (not a typo, that's "nine-zero") pantries all over central Iowa!
Our Missions Team tells me we ended up with more food than ever. That means more of our hungry neighbors will be fed much deeper into the winter. Thank you, Hope, for responding to the need, making a holy mess, working together to organize and deliver all that food, and putting your faith into action in such a powerful way!
What's next? For three weeks between now and Lent, we'll embark on a brand-new sermon series called Relationship Status. In this year of To (be) Know(n) (our 2017 annual theme), it's important for us to learn to apply foundational biblical directives for the key human relationships in our lives - so our sermon themes will be Modern Family (week 1), Friends (week 2) and The Love Boat (week 3). Discover what relationships are all about from the One who invented them!

Volunteers from our worship team will also be at the Connect, Grow, Serve area after all services this weekend to answer questions or get you plugged in. Put your faith into action, connect with new friends, and make a joyful noise - it's a win/win/win!
