Foolish Love… Breaks the Rules
Mark 7:24-29; Luke 13:10-17 
This week we will look at how love inspires us to break the rules. We will center not only in the stories of the Syrophoenician women, and bent-over woman but also in the story of Liam Bruzatori, a beautiful child who continues to challenge us to love.

Foolish Love Study Available
We will spend the season of Lent exploring the Foolish Love that Jesus calls us to share. Our church has produced a study guide, devotional, and videos to guide us through this season. Videos and electronic copies of the study guide and devotional can be found at our church's website by clicking the Foolish Love tab. Printed copies of the devotional and study guide can be picked up on Sunday mornings or in the church office. Books are free, but if you wish to donate toward the cost of printing, each book costs approximately $6.50 to print.

Just a reminder that the church office is officially open Monday - Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Toni will be out for a few weeks for medical treatment, and we cannot guarantee coverage beyond those hours. If you need to meet someone on staff outside of those hours, please contact the staff member and make arrangements.

All Are Welcome Guide!
We now have an All Are Welcome Guide available as a hard copy or online at our website at this link. We ask that you please take only one guide per family so we have plenty to share with those who come to visit our church.

Friday Fun Fellowship in February
Friday Fun will continue every Friday, February 23 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 pm. in the Gathering Room and Conference Room. This is a time of games and fellowship for retired people. You are encouraged to bring snacks, including some to share with others. Don't miss out on all the fun!

Join us at Beer & Hymns for all the best swoon-worthy love songs as we Share the Love with Essentials Outreach, our February charity.

Essentials Outreach provides rural Northwest Arkansas families and individuals with free essential personal and home products that are otherwise unattainable by those living at or near poverty. They deliver bundles to under-resourced communities that contain a supply of 10 critical items for a family, including deodorant, toilet paper, razors, hand soap, dish detergent, toothbrushes, soap, laundry soap, shampoo, and toothpaste.

Beer & Hymns brings people together to raise our glasses, raise our voices, and raise funds for organizations that change the world. All ages and all people welcome!

Second Street Pantry Diaper Drive
Did you know that 1 out of 2 U.S. families experience a lack of sufficient diapers to keep their baby dry, clean, and healthy?  Families often cut back on other necessities or have to keep kids home from daycare because of diaper needs. Second Street Pantry is privileged to partner with The Diaper Collective of Northwest Arkansas to offer diapers to our clients once a month.  You can help make a difference for these families in our community by donating to our annual diaper drive.  Now through March 11th, you can drop diapers in the collection bin by the church office.  Thank you for helping keep babies clean, dry, and healthy!

Mark Your Calendar for Women's Retreat
Mark your calendar for the "Barbie and the Bible" Women's Retreat at the church on April 12-13. More details to come!
