Thank you for the prayerful support you have given to our leadership as we have been seeking God’s wisdom for the future pastoral staff of Sardis Fellowship. We are excited to share with you that through a patient and prayerful process, God has led us to what we believe His plan is for filling the pastoral ministry roles of our Church Family. God has led us to have three associate pastors, Rob Shauf overseeing Disciple Making, Tim Voth overseeing Family Life and Eugene Braila overseeing Administration in a part time role. Following the Worship Service on April 7th will be a light lunch, which we ask your help in bringing a plate of sandwiches to share, and then a presentation outlining more detailed information about the roles and the stories of how God has led these three men into further pastoral ministry. Childcare will be provided.
Join us for a follow up to last fall’s Dr.Etherington session on the topic: "How to live as Christians in a world that increasingly rejects our values". Some modern public teaching resources were used for a case study at that event and on Mar.10th we will be informed on the balanced research behind these controversial resources. Childcare will be provided.
The Forever Young group will be hosting a potluck supper at the Church, and you are invited! Participants are asked to bring a dish to share. Please follow these guidelines, by last name, when considering what to make: A-L to bring a main dish, M-P to bring a salad and Q-Z to bring a dessert. Chris & Ruth Goodall will be sharing their testimonies, and we hope to sing some hymns. For more information, please contact the Church Office.
On Sunday, Feb.24th before and after the worship service we will be having a Dessert Auction to support the 2019 Mexico Missions Team. We invite you to stop by and purchase a dessert and support the team! Or, if you are someone who is able to do some baking, please contact the Church Office.

Please make every effort to attend this meeting. (Childcare will be provided.)
