Bible Bowl Trips
Today, the Bible bowlers will be meeting to discuss the upcoming trips to Mesa Arizona and California.  Even if you are not planning on going, we would like for you to attend this meeting, so we can be sure about the teams and planning.  We will meet at 2 p.m. after church today and we should be finished by 3 p.m. Notice we will be finishing up earlier today.   We will discuss all the details of the upcoming trips so don’t miss this meeting.   Next weekend we will be in Mesa Arizona for their Bible Bowl competition.  We are leaving on Friday, March 2 at noon and return on Sunday March 4 in the late afternoon.  You will only need money for snacks on the way there and back.  The California Bible Bowl has changed up some, you will want to be at the meeting, but the dates are March 15 after school on Thursday through Monday, March 19 returning home in the evening.  Again, the cost is only the money you use for snacks and souvenirs.  There will be another Bible Bowl meeting on March 11 which will be our last meeting of the semester to discuss the California trip and to tie up loose ends.   Thanks for your hard work during the year for Bible Bowl.  

Recent Events
We had a great turn out for the middle school Dinner and a Movie over at Ashton and Pierson’s home last Friday night, February 16.  We watched the movie “Wonder” which turned out to be a great movie.  Mary Beth made a wonderful meal of pulled pork sandwiches and then we had some good discussion about the movie.  Also, last week, we took some high schoolers over to St. Luke’s to wash the feet of the homeless.  That turned out great as Peyton, Patricia and Espy helped wash feet and the highlight had to be the children that came in to have their feet washed.  We don’t usually get children, but they seem to enjoy the foot wash.  Afterwards, we took a homeless person
over to McDonalds because they needed a ride.  It was a great week, and we also meet for class and continue to have good participation.  Thanks to everyone who helped this week!

Secret Church
We are having another secret church on Wednesday, March 7th, which means there will not be any middle school meeting on Tuesday, March 6th.  The middle school and high school will be meeting together on Wednesday March 7th for a combined activity that we are calling secret church.  We will be meeting together to worship and watch videos about Christian persecution and praying for Christians all over the world.  The van will be running to pick up the regular route of teens, but I need to know before hand who needs a ride, so I can plan the route and make sure we have enough room.  If you can get a ride to church, that would really help me if you normally ride the van.  I just want to make sure we have space for everyone on the van that wishes to come.  The last time we did secret church we had a great experience, and everyone enjoyed the worship and video’s we are looking forward to Wednesday, March 7th.

Parents Page
We will be discussing the trips to Mesa and California today from 2-3 p.m., if you are interested in getting some of the details, please come to the meeting with your student.  I found that some of the teens do not communicate with their parents about what is going on.  The bible bowl students will be missing a half day of school on Friday and they will also miss a day of school on Friday, March 16.  I apologize for the school that they will miss for these competitions, although, the teens do not seem to mind, but they will need to make up their work.  If you have any questions, please let me know.   Please note, that the middle school will not be meeting on Tuesday, March 6 but instead will meet with the high school on Wednesday night from 6-8 p.m.  If you can bring them to church that day, please do so that will really help me with transportation.  Thanks for your support!  God Bless, David
