Â The Daring Girls have assembled the Blessed to Bless bags and want to thank the congregation for the generous donations to this project.Â The bags are ready to be picked up today.Â They ask that someone from each household pick up a bag in the foyer after the service.Â There may be enough to offer another one to each family next week.Â These bags are to be placed in your vehicle to be given to any needy person youÂ may come across.Â Please be in prayer for the people these will reach.
A missionary will be visiting this Sunday May 1st . During the regular Sunday School timeÂ he will share with us what he has been doing at Frontiers. We are thankful that we can be a part of this ministry and look forward to hearing from him.
Please make note that there will not be a Daring Girls meeting for the month of May. Instead the girls are encouraged to attend the church work day on Saturday, April 30th to help in any way they are able.
On Easter Sunday we will be having breakfast finger foods between the Sunday school and the worship service. Please plan to bring a finger food (i.e. doughnuts, muffins, coffee cakes, or fruit) to share — something that does not require a utensil to eat. Juice and coffee will be provided.
Ruling Elder Britt McNeill has begun teaching communicants classes during the Sunday school hour. Â These classes are intended to help prepare young people to be examined by the session for church membership. IT IS NOT TO LATE TO JOIN.
Dangerous Club for Boys will meet at the church on Saturday, March 12, 2011 at 8:00am.
Ladies Book Club is reading â€œThe Rare Jewel of Christian Contentmentâ€ by Jeremiah Burroughs. Our next meeting is Thursday, March 10 at 7p.m. We will meet at the home of Maria Ettema, 7747 Beckham Court, Manassas, 20111.
The Daring Girls are starting a service project to prepare Ziplock bags containing basic necessities for the needy in our community. These â€œBlessed to Blessâ€ bags will contain many things we take for granted that would greatly bless a homeless person. Once the bags are prepared, they will be distributed to you to keep in your car to give to a person in need.

Items for the Blessed to Bless bags will be collected through April 3. Please prayerfully consider adding your name to the sign up poster on the bulletin board to donate as many items as you are able to give. Please place donated items in the basket provided near the coat rack. Please see Robin Deane or Maria Ettema with any questions.

Â Join Pastor Michael, Sundays at 9:30 am,Â as we begin exploring what Scripture says about the Church to which we belong.Â

– other critical topics that impact Godâ€™s people.Â
Come and get a sense not only of history, but the present, and the future!
