Mission: February Mission of the Month is Care Net of Carbon County. In our county, we have many “at-risk” young people, who don’t have positive role models or haven’t been taught life skills. Care Net is filling a definite void. The organization offers many different educational programs providing accurate information on pregnancy, fetal development, the options associated with pregnancy (parenting, adoption, or abortion), life skills, relationship issues, as well as assistance such as free pregnancy test, baby clothing, baby furniture, diapers and formula. See church office for a list of items needed by the organization.

New Sunday School Series: Adult Bible Class, held in Leah’s Room and led by Pete Herzog. Held on Sundays at 9:45 a.m. The theme is “It’s Not Suppose to Be This Way.” A contemporary adult Sunday school class will begin on March 10. It will be led by Sam Heiney in room 113 and include a six-week DVD series that will help you live with an eternal perspective.
