Foolish Love… is Unfair
Matthew 20:1-16, 18:12-13
The parable of the workers in the vineyard and the story of the 99 sheep left behind for the sake of the 1 show us that foolish love is not an equitable equation. It is not a utilitarian decision, but in fact, sometimes it means making the least fair decision in order to include more in the field of 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.

Urgent Announcements

Office Hours Reminder
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.

Family ministries

Join us on Palm Sunday at 10am to celebrate all things Easter! We will have crafts, a treat, petting zoo, and an Egg Hunt for ages 0-5th grade.


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!

Friday Fun Fellowship Continues through March!
Friday Fun will continue every Friday in March 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!

Learn More About Ozark Mission Project Sunday, March 10
This summer our church will take a group of youth to an Ozark Mission Project in Conway and we will host The Church of the Resurrection's team as they come to serve Northwest Arkansas. We need adults who are willing to go with the group to Conway and willing to help with logistics like meals and hospitality for COR's group. To learn about these opportunities, come to Hines Hall during the Sunday school hour (10 a.m.) on Sunday, March 10, or if you have a youth in our program and want to learn more, come to the Youth Room on the same Sunday at 4 p.m.
