The Wednesday Soup and Bread Supper will be hosted this week by members of Stewardship & Property Management. Please join us at 6:00 p.m. for a delicious meal. At 6:45 we’ll engage in some Bible Study around tables. With some help from John Hiigel’s “Partnering with the King” we’ll read and discuss some passages in the Gospel of Matthew. Then at 7:10 pm we’ll move into the sanctuary for a 20 minute Holden Evening Prayer service. Come as you are to these fun and informal evenings of good food, fellowship, Bible study and worship. The following ministries are hosting soup suppers: Youth & Education—April 2nd / Outreach—April 9th

For the third week we were competing against Sterling Savings and Umpqua Banks, we will find out the results on Monday. Thank you for your continued support of F.I.S.H.
